Abstract: In this month’s column, Kerry Hennigan discusses the importance of remembering to listen to Michael Jackson’s music and watch his videos purely as a fan rather than as a researcher or academic. She suggests that, with no specific agenda in mind, we are better able to enjoy the work and absorb the messages Michael wished to convey with his art. This can lead to even greater appreciation and a state called “blissing the mind” – a term Kerry employs to describe the feeling that comes from surrendering to the music and enjoying it without prescribed expectations.
