Someone once told me, “Music is part of the joy wave”. This is not hard to grasp, when you consider that each generation has its music, its sound, that special combination of notes, words and beat that resonates and speaks to its heart and soul.
Post WWII in Russia, there were citizens who risked their personal freedom to bring Western music to the people. It had been banned; only approved Russian classical music could be possessed and played. This is a story about more than music. It is one of freedom, and the will of the human spirit to overcome oppression. It’s a fascinating story, even if you’re not particularly a huge music lover. The story of Bone Music here:

So, feed your soul with whatever makes you connect to the joy wave, be it music, dancing, connecting with nature, etc. Joy is good medicine for body, mind, and spirit. It keeps alive our passion for life.
