First, read this: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/printerfriendlynews.php?newsid=176316 I have known for quite some time of the benefits of music, in more than just a "calming" effect. It does have real spiritual, emotional and physical affects! I protected my Tuesday night music circle time because of this. Tuesday night was the time for me to take care of myself. I miss that already, here in Maryland! I am searching for a group that will play together. If I can't find one, then I will start one!
