While I know that it would be harder to function in this world without my sight than without my hearing, I sometimes think that if I had to lose one of the two senses I'd choose to go without my sight.
I love music. I cannot imagine a life without music. Music can boost my mood (as in improve it). Or music can enhance and deepen a mood that I'm already in (even if I'm a little angry or a little depressed, the right music can carry me into 'very' angry or 'very' depressed).
Music helps engage my mind or distract me from situations that I would rather not contemplate (traffic, standing in a queue, exercising).
I enjoy all kinds of musical genres depending on my mood.
So, color me grateful for music!
