If you can walk, then you can dance.
If you can talk, then you can sing.

Music was only one expression of a behavioral and cognitive distinction
between modern humans and Neanderthals. As was representative art,
sculpture, ornamentation, esthetics applied to practical arts, advanced
technologies including boat-building, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
While the bardic arts are important, to claim primacy for them in the
human condition is both inaccurate and hubristic. And any bard worthy of
the name knows the penalty for hubris. Right? :-)

allergy thing so I call her the closet bard. Put me on the boards in front
of a crowd and I'm happier than a pig in slop.
