Composing for TEDx – Need your help!

  • Share on Tumblr

Your insight is needed here, my friend!

As you’ll see in the vid, something BIG is coming to our community, and yours truly is composing its theme song!

I’m soooo grateful and honored to have been asked, and now I’m asking something of YOU!

Just watch the video to get the scoop:


Week 4 thumbnail 3

It’s one of my very favorite things to do:  digging in on a concept like this, and “gathering intel” and inspiration from trusted sources . . .

It’s how I compose my tribute songs and videos, when I ask the family to gather up their cherished pics and vids, quotes, and best memories of their loved ones so we can honor them with their own custom-composed gift.

When I finish their unique song and present it, their joy, the tears, the laughter, and love, almost feel like more than my heart can even take at that moment.

That’s when I know I’ve done a good job though, because seeing a beautifully-lived life, set to music and loving lyrics, really should evoke that much emotion.

We’re such AMAZING beings, and we are capable of SO MUCH LOVE.  

You know I truly love my city, and I want to represent my community to the best of my ability, so that’s why I’m reaching out to YOU on this.

I hope you’ll check out this quick vid and let me know your thoughts in the comments or on Youtube!

It takes a village for a monumental event like this.  And I just know it won’t be the same without your input!

thanks and love to you and yours today,


P.S. This video explains it all.  (And I get silly at the end as usual.)  :)

    This is awesome! Rising Tide makes me think of Waves and Crescendos. Some sort of building to a fabulous release. Keep working it! You are fabulous!

      LOVE the word crescendo, Arynetta. Thanks for this input and miss you, A.P.! :) <3
