Soul Food for Friday, Feb 8th- It is all about the MUSIC!

Happy Soul Food Friday!

Did you know that the Chinese Character for music and happiness is also the character for medicine?

I recently learned that the Chinese character for music, if pronounced differently, can also be read as “happiness”. The character for “medicine” is exactly the same as the character for “music” and “happiness” with the addition of the symbol for “herb” on top. This gives us a sense for how ancient the ties are among music, happiness, and health.

On that “note”, maybe we would do well to pay more attention to our musical diets so “hear” goes…

This Father and Son Story is a Soul Food Crescendo that will surely strike a chord!
