The festival season is upon us in the UK. The sun is shining, the music is playing and for a short time we can escape and enjoy the moment. Who cares about getting the tent down or the queues for the loo – we can worry about fighting our way out of the car-park later…..
I love music, it’s constantly with me, at home working, in the car or just walking about – it’s power is phenomenal. It can make you cry, make you roar like a drunkard, bring you peace, wind you up, soothe your soul and make the hairs on your arms stand up on end. You can remember a song from when you were a child. You associate it with a special occasion – good or bad. A song can put into words everything you couldn’t.
In the sunshine, everything seems so much better. So if you can mix the two things together – well, I’m in 7th Heaven. So lets dig out our Boho dresses and flares, stick on a floppy hat, add the essential badge and embrace the inner flower child. Now bring on the summer… and please don’t stop the music, it makes us stardust, it makes us golden (with thanks to Joni Mitchell)
