Musical Expression in Recovery

Eminem picks up the rap album of the year, and I remember how Rehab was stuck on my player hours before I left for a treatment a couple of years back on an august evening.

Music has been pivotal in my life, as it has in the lives of many others, and has been integral to both my addiction and my recovery.  A recent conversation led to conclude that writing and listening and making music was the perfect way to stay abstinent for habitual relapsers like me.

Anyway, I am not Mavis, neither am I close, so I will take this Monday morning off from work and couch myself like Melody Gardot or Hendrix, and bask in the music of the grammy show 2011.
