Many of us cannot afford some of the art that we love (like Dale Chihuly glass.) Everyone who comes to visit us in the PNW is told they need to go to the Tacoma Glass Museum and the Seattle Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum at the Seattle Center to see Dale’s work.

I also love to know what music people are listening to because I love hearing all kinds of music. And don’t get me started on books…. If you aren’t reading, you are so missing out on a rich world.

Take time to share the music, art and books that you love with friends. Art and artists are a VERY important part of our lives.

Checkout Cheryl Bentyne’s (Manhattan Transfer) newest solo album. Release date is OCTOBER 6 …you can find it on Artistshare, ITunes, and Amazon.





I think everyone has at least one favorite song that reminds them of a person, place or thing.  And that person, place or thing most likely changed you in some way.

Music can take you out of the dumps, or it can make you sad but it can change you. Wouldn’t it be cool if we had a ‘world’ song that everyone loved and it changed the world?  ; )

Music is the universal language. Something that everyone can identify with. What is your favorite song? I have so many but if I had to select right now, I would say, ‘White Rabbit’ sung by Grace Slick and the Jefferson Airplane.



Now I think this is a true statement!

Music has always been a very important part of my life. Growing up there was always music in our home, all kinds of music. I loved listening to it.

I find that sometimes when I just need to get away, playing a certain song, will take me away to another place and it soothes my soul.

Does music do that for you?

Feed the Soul!

Feed the soul

This really rings true for me!

My belief is to be a well-rounded person, you also need to feed your heart and soul. To me art and music do that. Both of these things make my heart soar.

I feel it is important to ‘feed’ your brain but if you don’t feed your heart and soul then I see no point in feeding the brain.

What do you think?

Favorite Song!

Favorite Song

I really like this because I LOVE music. I have over 13,000 songs on my computer and that doesn’t count all my records.

My love of music came from my parents where there was always some kind of music playing in the house (plus we played the piano and organ). So what this says makes sense to me.

Does anyone else feel this?



To me, music is one of the most important things in my life. I wake up to a song in my head, when someone says something it generally reminds me of a song (and I have been known to blurt out the song on the spot), and I listen to music during the day.

Music brings people together. Music soothes the soul. Music makes you move. Music lets you lose yourself.

Anyone else feel the same way?
