Shuffle It Around

As many of you may know, I have an extensive background in music. I grew up in a musical family – my father was the musical director of many of the original game shows like Concentration and Tic-Tac-Dough as well as being the Musical Director for the soap opera, The Edge of Night. It was a ‘natural’ progression that I take on some musical prowess as well as a love of music.

With that said, I have a large music collection. With the invention of the iPod, I naturally gravitated toward purchasing one (or two. Ok Maybe three. Or some other number of iPods). My everyday workhorse model is an old 60-gig iPod that travels with me where ever I go. 60 gigs is a lot of music to carry around, and I certainly am grateful for having it. It allows me to have a diverse collection of tunes regardless of what mood I am in at the moment.

I started to change some of the music I have had on there and give it a fresh perspective. Not a big deal, but it gives things a “newness”. It was such a simple act and provides so much joy!

What can you do that is easy that will provide a lot of joy to you?

Be Well.

    I *loved* the music from the Edge of night! Did your father also write the theme music?

    Hi there Deborah! Yes, my father did write the music for the theme of the Edge of Night! For most of his 20 year history with the Edge, he performed it live every day!
