A science nerd’s perspective on hearing and emotions            I asked my friend the other day how she experiences music (the question was purposely ambiguous). She responded very simply, “I hear and feel it”. This may not sound all that profound to most people, but for me it was a reminder …
“Don’t give up just yet” I had been writing for a few years, and I had finally joined a writing class.  I felt I would do anything and I felt that my writing was good. I had paid for my online course, since at that time I was living in a fairly “out of the …
