"SOARING INTO THE SKY" (YouTube Video)

This short video is showcasing my new art piece "Soaring into the sky". I created it as a special gift for my friend, a young musician, who is setting off on a new career path. But the message and inspiration of this video is for anyone who is working toward achieving goals with aspiration.

Dear friend,   

You have been waiting for this moment. Waiting for the wind to pick you up, soaring into the sky with your wings. From that moment when you felt a spark inside you, a passion for music in life, you have been preparing yourself.      

Each sleepless night to despair, repeating the same passage over and over again to achieve perfection, all to perform only a few minutes in the spotlight.  It’s been a long road of both painful and gratifying patience and perseverance. But you are ready.    

Your future might be unknown and you might have fear or anxiety.  You might be trying to make sense of a world that seems so big and complex. But you are now armed with beautiful instruments and a powerful voice through which you can touch people, move their hearts, and even change the world because music can change people.      

Be like an eagle and fly high above self-imposed limitations.  Do not be afraid because you are armed with wings that are strong.  Do not be afraid because when the music is played from your heart, love and inspiration, no human expression can be more powerful.    

When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle, alone, avoids the storm by flying above it.   So in the storm of life, hold the vision, stay the path, and trust the process through which you learn about true self and your true mission. 

In the storm of life, may your heart soar like an eagle.   

Great philosopher Plato says, quote “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”   

Blessed be.
