When I read a book and it changes my mood, my perspective, my life, I realize how powerful words are. It motivates me to write a book, so I too, can help transform people’s lives. Because when our lives are transformed, I believe, our planet becomes a better place to live in.
When I listen to music and it makes me feel good, I realize how magical music is. It motivates me to compose music. Because I want others to feel the same aliveness. I want to move them in my own way.
I want them to feel the same way I felt while immersing different forms of art.
I want them to realize the things I realized while immersing different forms of art.
Because maybe, that way, I can contribute something invaluable to humanity. Maybe that way, I can be of service to others. And maybe make our planet a better place.
Why I’m doing this? Because I care.
And you should, too.
