My dad died. Classic start to a funny story. He was buried in a small village in Sussex. I was really close to my dad so I visited his grave a lot. I still do. [DON’T WORRY, IT GETS FUNNIER.]

Completely mesmerized by Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir. The Virtual Choir is a global phenomenon, creating a user-generated choir that brings together singers from around the world and their love of music in a new way through the use of technology.

(I recently started a real life choir, inspired by James Sill’s CreativeMornings “talk: last December!)
