One major source of inspiration for me is music. Music can transform me to another place- and, like color, immediately puts me in a positive frame of mind.

We out here in the Northwest are so fortunate to have so many creative artists and incredible musicians. I take advantage of the live music scene as much as possible, and last weekend was especially phenomenal. Brandi Carlile, one of the most talented singer/songwriters of today, and one of my personal favorites, played with the Seattle Symphony. I’d like to share this video with you, I hope you will find her voice as moving and inspiring as I do – she really belts it out at the end!

Update: Sorry, but my video that I took of Brandi singing “Hallelujah” was removed by Sony. Check out Brandi’s website and take a listen – she’s amazing!
