The power of music...
Here's something I've learned about myself. When I am driving home from a day of being in town, I sometimes start to get tired, and do you know what revives me (besides peppermint gum)? Music. Especially my Oldies Station, COOL 101.9. It's the music I grew up with. When I click on that station, my mind wakes up, I can sing all the words to songs that I've not heard in years. When I see this video of Alzheimer's patients, I think to myself, we ALL respond to music, don't we? If you'd like to read the article from Dr. Mercola on the power of music on dementia and Alzheimer's patients, it's really worth a read HERE.
I love so many, many kinds of music: 60s, 70s, Bluegrass, Jazz, Country, Classical, Hymns. Just about every style and type. Let's do something fun! In the comments, will you list some of your favorite songs or artists or types of music? Who is on your iPod or on your Pandora Stations?
Here's mine: Alison Kraus & Union Station, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Etta James, Leon Bridges, Motown, Sinatra, Gaithers, Selah, James Taylor, Eagles, YoYo Ma. And I could go on and on! Ok. Your turn!
