Tim McCallum - ‘Soul and Music’

AND THEN... I stumble across an unassuming guy like Tim McCallum and I get the sweetest taste of, along with the scientific evidence, of the real truth about inspiration. Here’s a flow of how this particular serendipitous moment panned out for me.
Yesterday afternoon I went to listen to our friend Cecile do a lecture/recital at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. It was a component of her Doctor of Musical Arts. She gave a really insightful address to her teachers, peers and friends titled, ‘A Musician’s Journey into the World of Tango’. Cecile looked at the multi-faceted relationship of two important components of her creative life, this being the piano and the Argentinian tango. Of how these musical creations came into her life in very different ways and somehow managed to weld themselves into an entirely new entity, a separate place that gave her a sense of compatibility and purpose into a world that is built individual note by note and movement by purposeful movement.

And be warmed and inspired by the observation that as human beings we are able to identify these amazing talents. And then find ways to breathe life into them so that the bigger world can also benefit and be blessed by their creation. You can listen to Cecile’s music from her first album (CD) of Tango music, Rosas para vos, by clicking on http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/cecileybrillo.
I’m a great believer that the plans of mice and man give God his greatest source of laughter. On Friday afternoons my work colleagues often ask each other what they have planned for the weekend. I couldn’t have planned yesterday afternoon nor how I am spending this Sunday following a mosaic of images and words in my mind and watching them as they fall together on the page.
