We have lots of stories about inclusion but after watching this video you’ll wish ‘you could have been there’ for this one.
In the quest for true identity I discover that I am loved for who I am, not what I do.. and that someone is for me, even more than I am myself… priceless.
Last week a singer-songwriter, who had been most insistent (like the old woman and the judge) that we get together for a ‘one on one’, dropped by my office. The songwriter hoped that I would agree to a) be her songwriting coach and b) introduce her to producer‘s or labels that would be interested in signing her.
After we had moved on from discussing the weather and completed the usual pleasantries associated with meeting someone new, she took out her acoustic guitar and played some of her original songs for me.
I could hear the makings of a good writer in her… and I can honestly say that I was impressed with bits and pieces of each song… a melody here and a lyric there.
But that’s like saying that the parts of the apple the worm hasn’t eaten are quite edible.
