In this inspiring paperback, Mary Kiki Wilcox shares her experiences of playing recorded music for seniors at a health center. She takes her CD player on visits to residents in their rooms. They select their favorite music and then savor listening to it. She meets with others to talk about music in "Mostly Music" sessions. Wilcox finds that serving others in this way brings joy to her heart:

"Who is to say what is happening here, what is being heard, or what is being remembered at the sound of any music? How could anyone know what might be stirring in the heart of another's moonlight?"
