THE Cure for Holiday Blues-Goodnight My Someone from The Music Man
I'm sure everyone has their own cures for too much fruitcake, not enough exercise, and the pressures that inevitably come with a favorite holiday...
Here's one of mine. Last week when my mala shop got blessedly over-busy, and everything else I needed to do piled up so much that I kind of, yes, gave up, I put the soundtrack to The Music Man on while I was working.
I'd put on a bead, listen to "Pick a little", make a tassel and listen to "Lida Rose-Will I Ever Tell You", and the stress just drained right out of my brain and my fingers.
It brings back such good family memories to listen to this corny but gorgeous soundtrack. I'm sure there's deep significance, but I haven't analyzed it. All I know is that I love it and it keeps me in my happy place.
I'd love to hear what music does it for you!
