Events like these can take a damaging toll on one’s self-image, and medical professionals have long recognized that emotional well-being is every bit as important as physical health. By diving into the game of golf, the Golf Digest writer tells how he or she was transformed and saved by the sport.
If you’ve never played golf, or if you’ve never allowed yourself to be transformed by the game — or any other game, for that matter — you may not understand the emotional connection. But many of you know what I’m talking about. There’s a spiritual connection to golf that many participants feel.
Music can be the same way. It gets into your soul and transforms you.
Audience members of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra know the feeling. Fans of Trombone Shorty feel it, too. Students of the Jazz Academy, both young and old, feel the impact of the music.
We know that lives are being transformed by the music every day. We want to hear your stories. Please tell us how jazz saved your life.
