In the Key of Bee…

One of the perks of working for a music and arts organisation is the inside scoop on really interested projects.  One of my colleagues has just finished this video on one of our Artist’s Residency projects, and I had to share!

Never Play to the Gallery

Today, I just lost a hero. Music, the world, has just lost a hero. A true artist in every sense of the word, David Bowie has been an inspiration and will continue to be for centuries to come.

I’ve been in love with him for nearly thirty years now.   I love his mind, his art, his music, his philosophy, his articulation. He was always one to express his art for art’s sake inasmuch as he could. Yes, he made mistakes. Yes, he picked himself back up again. He followed his inspiration, treading deeper water, finding those edges and always peering out beyond them, sometimes leaping over them into the great unknown.

My sadness is mixed with my joy that I was able to follow his work in this shared lifetime, right here, right now. My condolences to his friends and family, my heart reaches out to fans all over the world rocked by the news of his death.

May we all continue to question everything, to express our inspiration in thought-provoking ways. May we follow our hearts, think with our heads, and allow the love of this life to take us on amazing journeys. And may we never play to the gallery.

Loreena McKennitt on NPR

Suffering from a virus last week, and it’s subsequent manifestation as a stonker of a head cold this week, I haven’t been much use in the writing department, with a pounding head of thick fog and a need to just sit quiet, knit and listen to the people who are inspirational to me to lift me out of my self-misery.  Today I came across these two similar interviews with my favourite artist, Loreena McKennitt, on National Public Radio, which I thought I would share with you all.

Blessings,
