"One Good Thing About Music,"...

when it hits, you feel no pain. ~ Bob Marley

Music has such a visceral effect. It is  (besides my people) the biggest constant in my life. It never goes away. It never disappoints. It is there for every occasion. It is a friend to sing with, a shoulder to cry on, and a lover to wait for.

Music has an energy to it. There are songs you put on to run to, there are songs you put on to drive to, there are songs that play over and over in your head right when you need them to be there.

Music calms, it can send those neurons straight up, starting to equalize the right and left hemisphere of your brain, bringing you into an alpha or even a theta brainwave state (getting into that meditative place that makes you find who you really are).

I love lyrics. I will listen to a song over and over again because of what it says. This song below one of my new favorites. I love it for two main reasons. The first, my best yoga and music buddy shared it with me. The second, the meaning to me; it is a parent tucking a child in at night, telling them, "There's no reason to worry, no reason for nightmares. Everything is just fine. And not only is it fine, but you're safe. Safe." The exact thoughts that not only a child, but anyone, would be so blessed to go to sleep with.

Fairytale Lullaby- Bombay Bicycle Club
If you want ride a rainbow come with me
I will take you in a magic purple
Maybe we will find a thousand sugar fish
And when you eat them they will grant your every wish
And if you want your friends to come them bring them along
If you want to catch a star then walk my way
I will take you where the night is always day
You can follow me if you really try
Maybe we will find a rainbow, teach it to fly
And if you want your friends to come them bring them all along
Bow your head and let your eyelids close on down
Where we're going you wont' need to bring your frown
You will find that ll the things that I have said
Will come true when you are lying in your bed
And if you want your friends to come them bring them along
