The Power of Bach

Nothing like some good Bach chorales to get your out of a funk.

I’ve had music as a major part of my life for a long time, but recently I have been putting it a little farther behind me in some ways. I’ve tried to pick up music that other people are listening to, thinking that maybe I’ve been missing something all of these years (and maybe I have). However, denying myself in the process hasn’t exactly been good for me.

As I’ve added other genres to my listening, I’ve tossed much of my classical listening aside because the three minute drive up to work (thank you MPR). I’m not saying that is what has been missing recently, but having “found” my Bach again, I can’t help but think that maybe I’ve been denying myself in the thoughts that the person of the past is not who I am anymore.

However, healthy that is not. I am still that same person, just with more experience and having made more decisions.

Time to bring back the power of Bach.
