I'm a free spirit. I have travel a lot, though short distances now, sometimes long if I am able to get the time off. I love a lot of different kinds of music from the oldest to the newest. On my travels music has played a huge part of my life. It is the only thing that has been a constant beside picking up and going again and again. Yes, of my own volition. I have a hard time staying in the same place. Back to music...I play the kind of music my emotions are in tune to at the moment. One hour I'll be playing classical and the next I'll be playing heavy metal. Of course for different activities (i.e. painting) I require a certain kind of music or artist. I've been listening to music all of my life. My mother instilled in me the importance of it and we always had music going in the house when I was growing up. My step-father was in a band and my mother had us pick up an instrument when we were in school. Banging on pots and pans and creating our own instruments was encouraged growing up.
