Music has become very important to both me and my husband. Three years ago Ken gave me my first iPod Shuffle for Christmas and it changed my life. It introduced me to the ever expanding world of iTunes. I still keep my Shuffle updated with current tunes, cruise Time, People and Oprah mags looking for interesting new music and artists. I spend about an hour a day engrossed in my music as I fix breakfast and dinner. It has also been a real eye opener for my Grandchildren. Their eyes pop the first time they borrow Grandma’s Shuffle and hear Flor-Ida, Kanye West, Rihanna or Cee Lo Green. I love all types of music and there is a place for all of it in my day.
We thought Ken might be facing Chemo early this year, so I bought him an iPod Touch for Christmas. It is loaded with music, audiobooks and video. And he now LOVES music as much as I do. He looses himself in it. His favorite is Celtic music. What a blessing music is…he had forgotten the power it has to bring joy and to heal the soul.
Here is my latest drawing titled Music 3. It is graphite in a 5″ X 7″ sketchbook. I knew it was a hit when Ken saw it for the first time and said “Oh, I like that!” Now I’m starting to think in color.
