One of the reasons I like Twittter is because it lets you reach out into the future. You can actually, instantly, connect with people world wide who you'd have never met otherwise.... ever. You get to see how we are all different and the same...
Truly, I have no idea which, of however many things, makes one person connect to another. But, I do know that there are some things that connect us all.
One of which is music.
Last night I asked Some of my Tweeps to send me just three of their favorite songs....
