Healing:

Nothing evokes passion and emotion like music, especially music that has been a part of the soundtrack of our lives. These songs that we love from our favorite artists are like snapshots in our family photo album. Each one provides clues to our history, our tragedies, our triumphs and our loves. Music bonds us as a community. And when one of the contributors to our life’s soundtrack dies, we lose a piece of ourselves, a friend who has been “through it all” with us. The heartbreak is shared and the feeling of our own mortality is real. Lately, as we have experienced the loss of many in our musical family, I feel strengthened by our shared grief and expression of gratitude. Let’s find comfort together in the music they created for us and remember those times in our lives punctuated in song.

Yours in music,

Laura Duncan
