Most Tuesday nights I rehearse with September Crossing, the fledgling band that my sister and a childhood friend and I have formed. We’ve yet to have our public debut, but we’re enjoying the process, and when we break into three-part harmony an occasional clunker on the strings of our instruments doesn’t matter quite as much. There is something transcendent about making music together. A few weeks ago I heard Brian Eno talk on NPR about how singing is the key to a long life. It’s worth a listen; you can find it here.
Makes perfect sense to me!
