So one of the things that sets us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom is our creative abilities.  The visual arts, literature, performance art and my favorite, music.

Music, like other arts, is capable of transcending all social boundaries. At times, this was problematic for social and political conservatives. That’s how censorship was born.

The troubadours of the middle ages were loved and tortured in their time. Black music or ‘colored’ songs were turned into sexual rock and roll or renamed jazz.

As a 43-year-old bipolar, Hispanic, California girl, I can say my brand of music is all over the map. I love some of the music of my youth, some classical and some hilarious stuff as well.
