music can take us places. back to a first kiss at a school dance, a breakup in college, the first dance st your wedding. music has been there for all of our best and worst moments.

music is the soundtrack to our life. when you read through some of your poems do you hear a particular song or a little bit of classical music playing in the background? perhaps a piece of music has been the inspiration for a poem or story.

* from “Hey, Nineteen” by Steely Dan (1980)
