How do we explain how one day can be rosy, and the next day with clouds hanging overhead? Has anything really changed but our viewpoint?

With an economic crisis, we are more vulnerable to the glass-half-empty mentality, which only provokes more fear.

~W.A. Mathieu, the author of The Listening Book: Discovering Your Own Music

After studying African drumming for several years now, I can see how we don’t tune our drum, the drum tunes us changing our cellular make-up. Read more
