When I was able to settle in for the evening, I just put some headphones on and listened to music while I played Solitaire on my computer. I have those big headphones that cover your whole ear and block out the world. Sometimes I just need that. Sometimes, I will just start crying and the tears flow the whole time. Tonight, I didn't cry, but I could feel whatever was in my shoulders starting to seep away.
I'm in a funky funk - nothing is wrong. Just not quite "right". So, music really does soothe the savage beast.
