I read an article in today’s local newspaper that really resonated with me. You can read it here. The columnist Vinay Menon writes for the Toronto Star. His columns are about everyday things but he especially likes to poke fun at famous people and the antics of the rich and famous. He often comments on how far away the stars’ lives are from people like himself (and me). I find myself nodding and chuckling because he speaks the truth.
Today’s column was about something I strongly believe in. Vinay Menon says that he thinks that we could all feel better about the new US president if we all just sung more. He even suggested that Trump might be liked better if he sung his tweets. He said that the reason that the movie “La la Land” is so popular is because people sing in it and it just makes everyone feel so good. I agree that when we sing, it soothes the soul and instantly makes us feel better. I hum and sing all throughout the day. I’ve written other blogs on my love of singing. Here is one of them. One thing I forgot to mention throughout all this is that I’m a terrible singer. Everyone tells me so! Do I care? Nope! It makes me feel good so I will continue to do it.
