The holidays season is upon us and with the joy and anticipation it inspires it also seems to encourage a fevered pitch as well as a hectic push and press. Sometimes an exhale, a pause amidst the hustle and bustle is a great elixir. For me, music helps provide that pause, a moment (or two) to reflect, as well as provide a satisfying exhale. Doesn't matter the groove or the mood of the tune(s), per se. It's personal, as it should be, and I say, find whatever works!
