I have to admit that I have fallen out of love with TED Talks of late, as they just began to feel like an intellectual and visual version of slam poetry…A bit pedantic. Well, maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all. This talk by Robert Gupta was very inspiring, and the comments on the TED page are a great read too. This reminds me of how much music means to me, and how much I see that it means to others. I have seen music change lives, and indeed, music has changed and chronicled the tides of history. The arts reach us all. And they can unite us, as Robert Gupta said. We can all speak the common language of the creative expression of emotions. We can be united by awe and wonder.
“Music is medicine. Music changes us…Music is sanity.”-R.Gupta
Thanks for the music, Robert.
