I believe music is an amazing gift.
If you travel the globe, you'll find lots of different customs and cultures.
You'll find lots of differences when you compare cultures---but you'll always find music.
You'll also find music all throughout the timeline of humanity.
If I were an anthropologist, I'd like to investigate this question: is there a people group or culture in existence today in which music does NOT play a role?
There's just something about the way our brains were wired. Music is woven into the fabric of who we are as humans.
For some of us, music is a powerful (yet invisible) key that unlocks a heavy door and grants entry to the world of our emotions.( <---I have one specific person in mind here, but it applies in a more general sense to lots of us!)
I wrote another post which touches on how much I love the gift of music:
This Is Your Brain on Music is a fascinating look at how our brains process music. It's a very interesting book. I enjoyed it!
