#8 To release endorphins

When you are bed bound from pain, you need all the endorphins you can get, so I’m singing plenty.

1. Chronic pain relief for a song 2. Singing through the pain barrier 3. Can singing help me manage chronic pain? 4. Away with pain

Managed a quick walk today, and saw this beautiful willow tree in Grange Gardens, Lewes.

The tune and words for this version of Seeds of Love were collected from Mrs Baker in 1912. Mrs Baker lived in Hammer, Sussex. The version was featured in the New Penguin Book of English Folk Songs (2012).

I love this song. EB xx

  1. What a lovely song! Interesting time of writing, wonder how the writer came to feel such sorrowful things.
