WHAT HAS MUSIC TO DO WITH MY INVOLVEMENT IN THE EARTHQUAKE RELIEF.
Even though music is the driving force in almost all we do its impossible to highlight a specific project or situation where you can say: This is only happening because of MUSIC.
For the first time in many years I now have a case that only exist because of my love for music.
2 weeks ago I didn’t know that we had friends in Brooklyn, I haven’t heard about PictureFarm and I didn’t imagine that I would chat with Yvonne in NY i the middle of the night from my bed in Lisbon.
If it wasn’t because of my love for music I would never have listened to and blogged about Den Sorte Skole on my personal blog. And if I hadn’t done that I would never have had the dinner in Myanmar with Martin talking about starting up Turning Table in Kathmandu.
And if that didn’t happen Martin would never have had a chance to connect us with Yvonne, Mi Escuelita and all the other soul brothers and soul sisters in Brooklyn who wanted to help with the relief projects in Nepal and got all their friends together this Saturday for this fantastic event:
I am not saying that PictureFarm wouldn’t have raised the 14,000 US if it wasn’t for us. NOT AT ALL.
I’m just pointing out that if it wasn’t for the music I would never have had the privilege & pleasure to connect and help them out with their efforts.
So because of this fantastic musical master piece – HelterShelter now has the possibility to kick start the upcoming Earth Bag Project.
In all this misery its important to notice & enjoy the smaller things that hits you from out of nowhere
Like waking at 6 am this morning to this message Yvonne posted 5 hours earlier in New York.
