Music has Unspeakable Power! Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. Music is the mystical resonance that makes people cry, laugh and ...feel their hair stand up. For heights and depths no words can reach, music is the soul's own speech. Music expresses that... which cannot be said when it is impossible to be silent. Play from the heart and let your mind lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf .¸¸.•´¯`»✿◕ I hope they remember to feature local artists John See More
