Pump Up the Volume

I hate loud music.

I never understood people who listen to loud music.

Good music should be savored, not blast your head off.

Today, I got it.

Driving to the hospital for an ultrasound, I could not shake away all my fearful and depressing thoughts.

In an effort to drive these thoughts out of my head, I pumped up the volume.

There's nothing like a strong beat, to blast those thoughts away.



Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,
RivkA

Exactly. It's about tuning everyone else out.

Sometimes it works, but sometimes it just gives you a headache.

Thinking of you and hoping the scan shows you have no grounds for the fearful and depressive thoughts. Lots of hugs.

Just read some of your blog - haven't had time recently - we just moved to Israel :) - I guess that is called music therapy (I am not too far from your in-laws - next time you are there, we could try to connect).

Lena -- yeah. I guess I never realized that before.

Risa -- It used to always give me a headache. But today it was good for my head and my soul.

Na'amah -- so far, so good.

Anon -- thanks for the link. In my case, no heavy metal bands. For me, Billy Joel was just right.

Melissa -- WELCOME HOME!!! I would love to see you!!
