Do Everything To Music!

Hello Everyone:

I just wanted to share with you today what I am listening to and also let you all know that I finally walked home. I bought myself a pair of the new SKETCHER SHAPE UP shoes yesterday and I did my first 15 minute workout with them and then I wore them for half the day at work and walked home. I feel tired. Good but tired.

My motto has long been to do everything to music as I feel music has the ability to cure the soul and the body. I REALLY believe this. Years ago I went undiagnosed with a terrible trachia infection and I became very ill. I bought a violin so I could learn to play in case I died... It was on my bucket list and time seemed to be catching up with me. I played twinkle twinkle little star every single day. It's all I could play but I started to do it well! And honestly, I started to feel the vibrations and it calmed my then rather afraid mind.

My health finally got better but it took four years before I could even walk more than a block without getting so dizzy that I had to lay down. I have been a singer my whole life so I have been very in touch with music and it's healing properties since I can remeber. Now this video might not affect you the way it does me but that's okay. It is a very individual experience and that is the way it is supose to be. For me it brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart.

Enjoy and do everything to music. Sing if you feel like it, dance if you want to... who cares who's watching!

PS. I sold my violin to buy my Italian Greyhound... I felt at the time that the music had done it's job and my IG would be a friend I much needed... as he his.


  1. Beautiful!! I so appreciate that vid too..magical! Your post was beautiful..well said.. i agree 100%! Music is healing and music is one of the most powerful gifts to experience in life..it truly cannot be lived without..it is the soul of the universe! It too has brought me on many journeys...and always will.

  2. Hello there-
    I've always loved your bears....so sweet and beautifully made!

    This video is FUNNY! I, too, think music can change everything. I've been searching for a special jack for my MP3 player so my 18 month old daughter and I can listen to the same music at the same time.

    I was touched by your violin story. I also bought a violin many years ago. I am aaawwwfuuullll but it didn't stop me. My new LOVE is my small Celtic lap harp I received about a year ago. My little furry babies (dachshund and min pin) actually like this one. They used to try to hide my bow if I left it out where they could get to it!

    It's been a while since I've been here. I'm glad to 're-remember' your blog!
    Bye bye,
