I feel especially  lucky to have this email that gets read by so many people and to hear back from many of you. The theme for this week’s Friday 5 is: things to get us through the holidays. Enjoy! GiftingAmazon Prime. Free 2-day shipping, which is extremely helpful since I’m a last-minute shopper. Side note: I don’t watch much TV, but when I do it’s usually some low-budget show about ancient civilizations or space on Prime Video 🙂 JazzA Dave…

Hello and happy Friday 😃 Here is your Friday 5! Don’t forget to check out past 5’s on the Music Therapy Source website. Quote “But we must not forget that only a very few people are artists in life; that the art of life is the most distinguished and rarest of all the arts. Who ever succeeded in draining the whole cup with grace? So for many people all too much unlived life remains over – sometimes potentialities which they could never have lived with the best of wills; and so they…

Alicia visited our hospital and I got to lead patients and families in singing this song to Alicia Keys herself, and of course she helped. I’m still geeking out a bit. She…

You all are the best. I love hearing from you, so thank you for your feedback, kind words, and questions. Here is your Friday 5. How I’m Reading I know I usually do a “what I’m reading”, but you might be wondering how I get through so many books. Audible is the answer. It’s a great way to turn your commute into a college course or a pleasurable escape. Tech When you need to play songs at work, or at home for that matter, I hope you’re using tech to…

It’s time for the Friday 5! I hope you’ve had a great week. What I’m Listening To This fun bluegrass version of The Way You Make Me Feel Tech Tool When I need to record decent-sounding drums at work, I use the Roland Octapad SPD-30. I usually map it to midi drums inside Logic. So fun. Productivity Tip When I’m feeling overwhelmed, I write down everything I need to do on one side of a piece of paper. Then I flip it over and write down just one of those…

I’ve made it a goal this year to revisit works by some of the great psychotherapists. This is a pretty quick read – can probably be completed in 1-3 sittings. Listen Just My Imagination – The Temptations Last night I saw Ain’t Too Proud, a musical about The Temptations that premiered in Berkeley, CA. So many…
