A Watering Hole for the Soul

It's not exactly that these Monkeyhaus events are about friends, music and hifi (which they are). It's more about the actual experience that listening to music on a hifi among friends engendersan appreciation for what music is and what it does to us. Music is a bottomless well; a watering hole for the soul. And while it can be a wonderfully fulfilling solitary experience, our time at the Monkeyhaus reminds us that music is not about solitary things. Music helps place us in a filled-up world. It makes room for us and allows us to seek out like-minded souls. It makes us feel welcome. It makes us feel inside and outside ourselves simultaneously.
