gratitude for music



I'm sure most of you could say the same, but without music, I would not be the person I am today. The ways in which it opened my eyes, connected me with the important people in my life, and inspired me are endless. The way it can make me feel: more alive and authentic than I feel at any other time, and the way it reminds me how worth living life really is, and how limitless its wonder and beauty, I simply could not be happy without music. Recently my photography has taken me closer to the music. Shooting band photos for a Colorado bluegrass band and getting up close in personal at many a live show to "get the shot" has reinforced for me the importance and intimacy of the smaller venues for experiencing a magical live show. For that I am awash with gratitude.

And I can tell that gonzomama gets this, in her similarly framed shot below, an homage to music. Feel free to let us know how music is something for which you grateful, too!

Wow, these shots are such a perfect match, but WOW!!!! they are incredible! I'm with you on music. It shaped such a big part of my life during college and during my first job in the music industry. Who would I be without Phish and the Grateful Dead? No idea, but certainly not as open and free-spirited as I like to be : )
