Fun is a good thing, right? I’ve noticed that when I’ve performed in a concert that I felt good about, I describe it as having been fun! Sometimes, I think fun gets a bad rap, like it’s not serious enough, or it’s not deep enough. When I was younger, a part of me thought that could be true, but I noticed that I still felt that good concerts were “fun.”
Now, I am all-in with fun! I believe this is what Mary Poppins was telling us when she sang, “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” Music is fun! This week, I hope that we all find the fun in our daily lives!
