Tuesday Tunes

I think we can all agree that music has the power to inspire, uplift, entertain, motivate, and move us.  I know it certainly does for me. For those folks who are familiar with this blog, you may recall that I’ve shared posts regarding my love for music and dancing.  In my experience, music is like therapy, transforming my mood and motivating me at challenging times.  Not only does music soothe or entertain us, but hopefully, it enriches us as well.  With this in mind, I’ve decided to add a music post as part of my weekly contribution to this blog.  I enjoy all kinds of music, so you never know what you may find here. This musical selection is my first endeavor for Tuesday Tunes.  It’s from Act II of Puccini’s opera La Bohème, “Quando Me’n Vo’” or “Musetta’s Waltz.”  I hope you enjoy this beautiful and moving soprano aria by Anna Netrebko.
