I really enjoy listening to music! My mother used to do her housework to the arias of the opera "La Boheme". She especially liked "Musetta's Waltz". I found a recording of it a few years ago and made a CD with it on it for her. During my recent visit I played the piece and she could still remember and sing it, even though she's incapacitated with Parkinson's Disease. I believe that music is the universal language.
I come alive when I hear some of that Latin rhythm music, too. I guess that is why I like the Western Caribbean cruises, so I can go to Mexico!!
