Today, I do not have a “prompt” but a reminder.
Especially in the face of unspeakable horrors, do not lose sight of the fact that, as a composer, you have a unique gift to speak directly to people’s souls. Whether to remind us of better times or to help sort through diffficult feelings of loss, despair, anger–it is both a rare and vital ability you have and, especially in dark times, necessary.
So go on and write now. May what you make begin the long process of healing. Don’t ever give the evil in this world the power to silence you.
