Monday's Muse

Music can lift us out of depression or move us to tears - it is a remedy, a tonic, orange juice for the ear. But for many of my neurological patients, music is even more - it can provide access, even when no medication can, to movement, to speech, to life. For them music is not a luxury, but a necessity.  ~ Oliver Sacks, neurologist and author of Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain
