As Frances Re”coop”erates…

When you get sick, you gotta pay!!!ย  You gotta write till you get better!ย  From the beautiful Frances A. Griffin-Brown, her first post. – Victorine


Ok!!! So I am on a one month โ€˜be stillโ€™ lockdown and was wondering how my family was going to be able to deal with me. Everybody who knows me knows that I can be a bit difficult when it comes to even sitting still. Well, yesterday I watched the commemoration of Bloody Sunday and had some interesting conversations about my feelings, my whereabouts during that time etc.

Victorine requested I log my time during this month and I hesitated because I told her I hate homework.๐Ÿค— Anyway, she makes sense because today after my
therapist left I watched the documentary โ€™In the Shadows of Motown.โ€™ Oh my, it was so good! It showed how music can heal the mind and soul and also how music brings together people of all races, religions and even political folks.
Marvin Gaye singing about the Vietnam war โ€˜Whatโ€™s Going On,โ€™ โ€˜What Becomes of a Broken Heart,โ€™ just great music.

The most important were the people/musicians behind the music how and what they went through for those wonderful sounds. If you are a music lover like I am, this is a must-see documentary. If not for my present limitations I would have been up on the floor moving to the groove. Iโ€™m going to suggest our jazz/concert band director show this to our students.

Music is Love. Music is Life. Remember God, Love and Family First ๐Ÿ’– ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ’– – Frances A. Griffin-Brown
