A “pill” you can hear

We talk about the benefits of laughter.  We certainly talk about all of the things music can do for us.  But this sums it up:  the right dosage, at the right time, can change a day or a week.  Diligent practice can change our brains, our habits, and even our relationships.  Whatever you’re dealing with, keep the music going.  It’s better than popping a Flintstones, any day.

“Music is the medicine of the mind.”
— John A. Logan
