Music and the Genome

Inky’s Take:  Music.  One of my sincerest loves.  The one gene I did not inherit from my Irish ancestors, making me the only one within my immediate  family who failed to capture that prolific scamp from the ancestral tree.  When it comes to Inky and painting silence; I relate it to a passage from Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

‘Hugh consoled me, saying, “Don’t let it get to you. There are plenty of things you’re good at.”   When asked for some examples, he listed vacuuming and naming stuffed animals. He says he can probably come up with a few more, but he’ll need some time to think.’

…and that, my dear friends, would be a bullseye!
