It is obvious that the point if the article is not to focus solely on the scientific evidence of benefit that music education has on the brain, though that makes a good argument as well. I appreciate that this author suggests that music stands on its own two feet and is part of the human condition. Music is in our culture and our surroundings in numerous ways. When we don’t become musical beings, even to the mildest degree, we alienate ourselves from much of the cultural ritual and tradition that defines our nation’s fabric. Can you sing the national anthem? Can you sing along in church? Can you join in music-making at the holidays? Can you discriminate between quality, sophisticated, artful music and mediocre fluff that is made only to make a quick buck? Do you understand the ways in which music was/is used in cultural identification and participation? I could go on and cite hundreds of sources from the ethnomusicological and psychological standpoint but the point is that music is a part of life and should not be left out of the human experience. If and when it is, it will truly redefine us as a people who care more about numbers, data, competition, success and failure instead of beauty, community, tradition and historical identity. The arts tell a story and allow us to keep doing the same. I don’t need scientific data to prove that.
My mother had hep c and I wish your blog had been around a decade ago to help us with the low sodium diet at the time. I am grateful that you’ve taken the time to write out things that seem so simple, but I’ve forgotten. I am now on a low sodium diet, less than 1200mg/day due to a medication I’m on, and eating has become a frustrating endeavor at times. I got so excited the other day when I found Swiss cheese that was only 25mg a slice. My husband looked at me as if I’d lost my mind when I came skipping away from the cheese aisle with an arm full of swiss. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to put this together. It is truly appreciated, and I’ve even called ahead to the restaurant we are having dinner at tonight to see if they preseason their chicken.. Hahaha… It seems so silly, but I’d forgotten that I can simply ask them not to season it. Thank you, again. I cannot seem to say that enough.
