“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music…I get most joy in life out of my violin”.  This is an excerpt from an interview printed in the Saturday Evening Post; October 26, 1929 entitled “What Life Means to Einstein”.  Music transcends.  How many times have you heard a song play and have it remind you of a person or an event that may have happened years ago that was far from your mind in whatever activity you were doing? Music uplifts. Feeling down? Turn on the radio or play a favorite tape or CD.  Music therapy has proven to have a positive affect on participants.  Do something nice for yourself, play and enjoy music.  Even go so far as learning to play a new instrument. It’s never too late to learn something new.
