#194 / DSMO For The Soul

DSMO, more accurately Dimethyl Sulfoxide, is an organosulfur compound with the formula (CH3)2SO. You can click the link to read about it. 

I don't actually know too much about DSMO, except that I do know that it is a "penetrating agent," and that it has an ability to carry other chemical compounds into virtually all parts of the entire human body, as described below by Wikipedia

Use of DMSO in medicine dates from around 1963, when an Oregon Health & Science University Medical School team, headed by Stanley Jacob, discovered it could penetrate the skin and other membranes without damaging them and could carry other compounds into a biological system.

For me, DSMO has always been a metaphor, and when I first saw the music video that I have linked above (Tim McGraw in his official video for "Humble and Kind"), I realized, again, how powerful music is, in its DSMO-like ability to penetrate the soul, bringing to the very deepest part of us a message that would, probably, never ever get there, if the message weren't dissolved in the music. 

Click that link, above, and let the music penetrate. 

I am pretty sure you won't regret it.
