Today, an eight year old asked me question that made me pause for a moment and think. She asked me: "Why do you like music so much?"
And honestly, I don't really know.
I guess music isn't something I like as much as it something that is part of my life. As a kid, I listened to those kid-sing-along CD's where the kids inside the speaker would sing Apples and Bananas or This Old Man. Later, I learned to play the piano, my feet dangling from the tall bench. Then, in middle school, I learned to play the violin and participate in chorus and the school musical. To me, singing is something that comforts me and cheers me up. It helps me act sassy because I'm not a sassy person. Singing is almost as natural as talking for me.
