Just recently I discovered a new therapy. It’s free. You don’t need any special equipment. You don’t have to fit it into a schedule.

It’s “Edelweiss.” You know, the song, “Edelweiss,” from The Sound of Music.

A few weeks ago it popped in my head and I couldn’t shake it. But soon I realized that it was relaxing.

See, you can’t sing “Edelweiss,” the right way of course, with the correct voice, and be stressed.

You can’t sing “Edelweiss” and be sad.

You can’t sing “Edelweiss” and want to bite the tail end off of a wompass cat.

You can’t sing “Edelweiss” and have road rage.

You can’t sing “Edelweiss” and not breathe.

You just can’t. Try it. Go ahead. Test my theory. I have. I’ve been singing it regularly now whenever I get tense and my head starts spinning. It works like a charm.

To top it all off, for your listening pleasure, meet Henrietta, along with Slocum. Henrietta is Slocum’s, the singing shadow dog, special friend. Feel free to sing along. You’ll be glad you did.

If you haven’t already, be sure to meet and check out Slocum’s other performances.

Hope you have a “Edelweiss” kind of day! Are there any other songs you sing when the going gets rough?
