Now That Christmas is Over. . .

There. That feels better.
I find something peaceful and healing in the sound of electric guitars, heavy bass, and whipcrack drums. Rock & Roll settles my soul like almost nothing else.
All music fulfills some need inside me. Jazz seems to fill in a hole inside me that I didn’t know was empty; it completes me somehow, although I can’t really explain it any more clearly. Country and Blues are kind of like booze–comfort in a misery loves company kind of way. Other kinds of music fill other emotional needs: laughter and rage, joy and contemplation. But Rock & Roll, that’s like coming home.
