Our first diversion — music. It can calm you, excite you, inspire you and return you to another time. We’ve been known to return to the younger version of ourselves while listening to Chicago or Peter Frampton!
So here are a few diversions for you to enjoy that are related to music.
Susan mentioned Pandora radio. In case you don’t know what it is, Pandora is a Internet radio station where you can plug in an artist you enjoy, and Pandora will create a play-list of the music you love, along with introducing you to similar types of artists and music. So, tune in from your computer, laptop, or smart phone and open up those channels to creativity — it’s free!
We said we might make a recommendation — here’s our first.
Our new passion at diva dens is the music of David Garrett, particularly from his newest CD David Garrett Rock Symphonies. Garrett, a musical child prodigy and world class violinist has made the crossover from classical to rock with this new CD. On it, he plays everything from Nirvanas, Smells like Teen Spirit to Paul McCartney and Wings, Live and Let Die. So Diva’s, rock out in your den!

And last, a website to waste time on. We know you don’t have a lot of time to waste, and we don’t want to take precious time away from you doing what YOU want to do, but it’s related to music and we think it will make you smile.
Einstein attributed his scientific insight and intuition to music and said he lived his daydreams in music. A little music in your daydream, or your diva den, is not a bad thing.
