Music for the soul
by Lorna Hill
Silence is golden. However, when we are blessed with the arrival of talented musicians and singers, let music be food for the soul.
Ricky and Monica arrived from Texas and Ricky, after spotting the guitar in the corner, told us that they were part of a band and would love to “sing a song or two”.. We said we were more than happy and they got to it straight away. Within minutes, they had us all singing along to “Wagon Wheel”, one of my favourite songs by the Old Crow Medicine Show.
What a way to start the trip. I believe that singing is a great way to bring out the good feelings in everyone so it wasn’t a surprise when we were greeted so quickly by the whales!
The party didn’t stop there. When we arrived back to camp, we shunned our salty sleeved coats and spent happy hour (plus some) singing away under the golden light of the sunset. Ricky and Monica sang some of their own songs but the highlights were definitely “Ring of Fire” and “Take me home, Country Road”.
If music be the food of life, then sing on!
