>I have two favorite songs. The first is “Sleigh Ride”. I don’t know who does the version I like, but it’s instrumental. I am guessing it’s the Boston Pops or someone like that only because the first time I remember hearing it was on an album (record) of my mom’s back in 1979. I can see myself at five years old dancing around my parents’ living room in joyous abandon trying not to knock over the tree or step on the cat.
My other favorite song is from the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack. It’s the “O Tannenbaum” song. An instrumental that soothes the savage beast within. Whenever I hear it, my mind centers itself and shifts perception to really see the world in all its beauty.
