Welcome, to The Music of Life. Some of the most important connections of our lives, those we form with ourselves throughout life, as well as those we form with our families and friends, are being lost in this modern world of “social” media, minimalism, and keeping up with society. I hope, through this column, to remind my readers of all that matters, and help them re-establish their bonds with life, memories, mementos, and traditions.
Christmas music is everywhere these days, and with Christmas being less than a month away, that really isn’t surprising. My daughter started singing Jingle Bells six weeks ago., and given that we still had 2 weeks to go until Hallowe’en, I figured asking her to wait was a reasonable request. A few years ago, I was chastised by an older woman in a grocery store, when I was a bit exasperated with my daughter who was very excited about Christmas and showing it. “Enjoy it”, I was told, “these are the best times.” I looked at her and just said; “We’ve already had six weeks of this, I’m just about done with it.” It was still a couple of weeks until Christmas, and it was wearing me out already. She just looked surprised and moved on. Here we are years later, and I’ve now been listening to my sweet girl sing Jingle Bells over and over since Remembrance Day. A friend recently taught her how to play the song on the piano as well, so now I get to hear it that way too. Nearly four weeks to go until Christmas. I think it’s time she learned some new songs too!
