Nothing makes a rainy day go by more quickly than music. I can look out of the window and see the rain coming down, but the music I am listening to can take me away to a bright, sunny day without a care in the world. I never cease to be amazed at how people can produce such beautiful music in all genres that can affect us so profoundly.
I subscribe to a Spotify playlist called “Brain Food” that can get me through any situation. The music that appears on this list can take me away from any stress that the job produces, so I listen to it nearly every day while I am working. Since I work from home, the only thing I have to worry about is playing the music too loudly and disturbing Hal. Even The Stooges seem to enjoy listening to music all day as they play and sleep.
Because this is Friday, the rain might seem like something that would be unwelcome, but the music makes it alright. I can deal with the rain as long as I have my music. The gray skies seem irrelevant while my mind focuses on the job and the music that is playing around me.
