Keeping the spirits up

Much has been said about the extent to which music lifts the spirits. It was Friedrich Nietzsche who said:

‘Without music, life would be a mistake’

Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

And I for one wholeheartedly agree! So, seeing this picture of a group of women carpenters from World War 2 using saws and other implements as musical instruments during an impromptu lunchtime concert in their workshop really made me smile!
