AM I THE ONLY ONE . . . who occasionally uses music to soothe my troubled soul?

In our house, there is usually some kind of music playing from the time we get up. That usually continues until late afternoon when our TV viewing time rolls around.  We have Alexa and recently we’ve begun to ask it to play whatever music that days choice may be.  Before that, we’d play music from one of the 30 or 40 channels on our TV that play music.

Rock, Pop, Country, Christian, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, you name it we have a channel for it.  We generally alternate between the TV stations, Alexa and our CD player which holds 50 CD’s.  Course we haven’t purchased a new CD in quite a few years, but we have some pretty good music that we purchased back in the day.  Suffice it to say, we have a pretty good variety of music to choose from.  

This poem is the result of a night on the patio, listening to tunes on my stereo and enjoying a glass of wine. (or, perhaps several glasses)

He’s a fan of country music, he’s a fan of Rock-n-roll,
…. he’s a fan of island sounds, as well Blues, and Southern Soul.

Music takes him all the places his mind allows him to go,
yet wherever that might be, is rarely under his control.

Oh, he’s in charge of the remote, what he hears is his decision,
but whatever enchanted mood he’s in, has total control of his vision.

Music lights his pathway, it helps to make him whole,
it brings him to the edge, as it soothes his troubled soul.
