I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    McFerrin nailed it.
    Notice how in tune everybody was?
    Notoriously, civilian crowds stay on tune, while a choir of trained singers can drift off-tune if not careful. I;ve witnessed it, so believe it!

    That was stunning. And yet…it makes so much sense. If we are hardwired to recognize certain /relationships/ between sounds then the development of music must have been as inevitable as breathing. And it may also explain why music has the power to reach right in and grab us by our emotional balls, so to speak. Thank you so much for this. I’m going to post this on my blog too. Brilliant stuff.

      I was wondering if language grew out of song, not the other way around. I’m so glad you love it as much as I do!

      Hi, Patricia! Like most people I know, I came to Bobby McFerrin through “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” but learned he’s SO MUCH more. He’s brilliant!
