Music soothes Longing

This is written in response to Daily Post’s Daily Prompt, Longing

PurplePumpernickel reblogged this on Sunrise, Sunset and commented:

I have enjoyed visiting & revisiting re-posted posts on Blogs I follow.  They are reposted typically because they have a significance to the Writer, and having the opportunity to read it (again) is a privilege. I am inspired to do the same; repost something from my archives, once each month this year. Care to join me and celebrate our Pasts together?  If you decide to join in, ping back to this post so I can find you. Last month, I revisited the idea of Seasons in our lives.  This month, in line with my conversations about Beauty, I relook the role of music in my Life. After the brush with pneumonia & the long ICU stay in May last year, it took a while to recover the ability to talk.  And sing.  As I struggled to regain control over my vocal chords, I promised myself that once I was better, I would do something more with my voice.  I have since begun singing lessons (with Mom & Dad).  Funnily & happily, the singing exercises have helped my running; using the breathing techniques I learn in our singing sessions, I can control my breathing better which translates into running faster & longer.  Once again, I am reminded of how precious music is.

Kunio Kishida, Japanese musician with a southern rock soul!!

I wrote this article for a facebook group about a recording artist, guitar shop owner/teacher, and lover of great guitar music .  It’s a Q&A through email about him, his experiences as a guitar player, and while heavily favored on the Allman Brothers Band, Kunio explores wide range of interesting topics. 3,111 more words
