Music therapy

Things have been understandably intense at work. So last night I went to a free concert in Mitchell Park in Palo Alto - Tempest, my favorite band for lo! these nearly 15 years or so. There was a sunken "bowl" that made a good dance floor, and I danced my little feet off, with a chunk of kids, adults, and dogs. ;-) That's just it. Tempest is the best dance band going. I've watched them have folks dancing in the streets outside places they were playing. I trance-dance to near-exhaustion, but it's the best therapy I know. It was what I was doing to manage my "progressive nervous breakdown" when I was waaaay too overstressed in 1989. Best thing I could do. After years of barely making it to Tempest gigs, I am now trying to get to them regularily.
