Filling the silence

Parkinson’s is a deafening silence in your life; an open drain; a gap and a void. You can allow the silence and the void to grow or you can fill it with beautiful coping music.

It is the nature of music that each note is created from nothing, exists for a time and is enveloped by the nothingness of silence again. Therefore, coping with Parkinson’s is a process of continual renewal; of creating music to resist the silence and watching one sound fade only to create again…and again…and again... This is the burden of chronic disease.
