My brother-in-law Gary is in the hospital in Atlanta recovering from surgery this past Friday … and while we were thinking about him, Brenda and I laughed at the few odd things that Gary says and does (some funny and some just odd … I smile just thinking about it!) At one of our family gatherings a few years back when “streaming music” was new, I fed Pandora into our home’s background music. On this occasion I had my Jackson Browne Pandora station playing and Gary was astounded when song after song was tailored to his taste; it gave him pleasurable memories from observing his excited comments and movement!
Music, especially from a happy time in life, can help a body releases endorphins which are natural pain and stress relievers. With that in mind, I played an old song for Brenda the other day … one she hadn’t heard for a long time and it made for fond memories which had her singing and dancing like a kid. She in turn sent the YouTube clip to her sister to play for Gary with the thought that it might make the day after surgery a little better.
