We articulate pain and suffering through art
For many of us 2010 has gotten off to a challenging start. I recently had the fortune and misfortune of surviving one of the most catastrophic earthquakes of our time in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on January 12th. That Tuesday, the day after I had arrived, has extended my perspective on the union that all people consciously or unconsciously share. I’d like to take this time to thank everyone for their thoughts, kind words of encouragement and votes of confidence in this year being one that brings opportunities for growth and empowerment. As I chronicle these experiences, some of the most memorable moments have been the manner in which people from around the globe have displayed human compassion and solidarity.
Other priceless moments that I will keep with me were the impromptu vocal and instrumental jam sessions amongst people who had never met during periods of anguish and uncertainty. As musicians and creative individuals we articulate pain and suffering through art. This is what allows us to regain a sense of who we are and of what impact music may have on the paths of others.
We at Producer’s Edge have joined forces with the Greater Palm Beach Area American Red Cross, Elizabeth A. Cobb and other organizations to make a difference in the lives of those who continue to struggle in the aftermath. We are asking all of our friends and subscribers to donate $1 to assist in providing vital necessities to help the people in Haiti in their rebuilding process. Thank you.
