Virtual Choir

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. Singers record and upload their videos from locations all over the world. Each one of the videos is then synchronised and combined into one single performance to create the Virtual Choir.

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

Gratitude

1. What am I taking for granted this week?
2. Who helps to keep the comforts of my life coming to me?
3. What systems are helping my life to run right now?
4. Three mundane things that I do almost daily that I’m grateful for.
5. Five utilitarian things I use in my life, why I’m grateful for them, and some of the factors and circumstances that help bring those into my life.

Loving these 5 questions for deeper gratitude. Thank you for sharing, Danielle LaPorte.
