My Music. My Story. is one of Classical Music Indy’s new initiatives to feature music, musicians, and music lovers in a fun way. In this excerpt from “I Walked Naked Through My House Today…..and So Should You,” our friends at Speak Your Story spoke with Trish Crowe about how music saved her life.
I Walked Naked Through My House Today…..and So Should You
The year I turned 50 was one of the most stressful times in my life. It brought overeating, high blood pressure, and depression. The emotional and physical strains were killing me – body, soul, and spirit. Music saved my life. A friend invited me to sing at a coffee shop, and with every song, I felt the power of music telling my story. On the dreaded, yet inevitable day I woke up alone in my house for the first time in my life, music once again lifted me. Through the pain, I said a prayer, got up, and suddenly realized I had the freedom to walk naked – not just physically, but emotionally, with self-awareness. I’m not perfect, not skinny, my body’s in its 50’s. In that imperfection, I realized I’m beautiful exactly as I am. That morning, I wrote a song called “I Walked Naked Through My House Today,” the medicine for my broken heart and lonely soul. My song is my mantra of empowerment.
