My precious community...during these extraordinary times in which we find ourselves navigating through health and financial anxiety, I believe it is also a profound opportunity for humanity to awaken to a more enlightened way of living and caring for one another as well as our planet which is in anguish. It is certainly a most painful lesson in humility which we can only learn with grace, patience and compassion for one another.
Like many people I have been thinking about ways in which I can be of service to others during this period of adjustment. As I’ve been speaking with many of my fellow artists...musicians, writers, photographers, teachers etc., I am hearing that they are not just worried about their health, but that they are really hurting financially, some unable to even pay rent. Unfortunately majority of us will not qualify for government relief which is why I decided to produce a piece of music and use it to raise funds for my community. This 9 minute meditation/ceremonial piece entitled "All that is left is Sky," is inspired by nature and the psychic transformation we are all experiencing collectively. I am certain I am not alone in my experience that everything even the sky seems different these days. Or maybe I am just learning to slow down and adopt the pace of nature...to appreciate and bear witness to the eternal dance of creation...from the ephemeral transformation of clouds to the intoxicating smell of roses which I am now making time for.
I am offering this song for free since I know that many people cannot afford to make a contribution at this time. But those of you who can, I ask you to give whatever is within your means. It can even be $1. All the money raised will be distributed evenly among the artist community. In the spirit of transparency, every single artist who receives funds will be named publicly along with the amount that they receive so that donors know exactly where & to whom their contributions are going.
With love, compassion and kindness we will overcome this tumultuous time together. Thank you for listening and for helping me to uplift the artists who need to be uplifted during this challenging time.
Please share this campaign…
In the impenetrable night,
All the sorrows of the world,
All its sins and evils,
Its tears and cruelties,
Have risen in tumult, overflowing their banks
And blaspheming the skies.
Yet, O fearless, O sorrow-stricken one,
With the groanings of the earth resounding in your ears,
Accept the mad evil days with fortitude,
And with hope undimmed in your soul,
Hold on for the new shore
Poem by Rabindranath Tagore
