Music hath powers to soothe the savage breast.

After realizing I read Angus's comment wrong... Math may hath powers to soothe the beast in Bou... it is wonderful to hear Bones is feeling so great about music. I hope it continues to make him shine. He is a wonderful boy.

Oh! I know what you mean about the extrovert overload thing!!! I have never heard that put into words, but you're right! There are a couple of people in my life that overwhelm me like that.

Don't stress over the voice or theater thing. My Mom taught theater for years and nearly always found it easier to teach singers to act than actors to sing.

Arts geeks are each their own kinds of sub-culture odd. Band and voice and theater and visual all have their own kinds of weirdness. I had done all in HS, and figured out pretty quickly that instrumental music was where I fit best. It is still a big part of my non-employment life.

From "getting to know him," through your posts, I think felt the right connection to that program and jumped on board.

Good luck with the adventure!

I wanted to cry.

I'm sitting here teary-eyed for him. Moms need to hear those things from their kids...

Bou I know my husband is like you in regard to the extrovert thing. I'm still not quite sure why he married me - I'm sure I drive him crazy most all the time. Heh.

I teared up when I read that last bit. I'm so happy for him and you. If he can find peace in his music that is a wonderful thing indeed.

Ah Bou - the whole post is golden but that last line from Bones is so precious - leaves me with wet eyes for sure.

I can take extroverts for only so long - then they suck the energy right out of me and I have to retreat to solitude someplace.

Extreme extroverts... good grief. Make me want to throw a punch. Breathe already!

Feeling peace in music/voices. Bless him.
