Listen To The Music

I remember when I first realized music made me dance on the inside. A sixteen-year-old, sitting in my lavender bedroom, feeling a little sad about a recent breakup. My radio on and just hoping a sad song would be played to add drama to the moment. Instead, Twist and Shout by the Beatles ...

As our lives unfolded the time we were able to spend together was the typical tale of good intentions, hectic schedules and cancelled ...
