A Gift of Art, in Love
Art, for me, is the act of manifestation of gifting love. I have learnt to hear poetry everywhere. I hope you do too. ONE VOICE is a community art project, a GlaxoSmithKline-charKOL production, for and with the Down Syndrome Association (Singapore).
We are aiming to produce the following:
1) A Community Documentary
2) A Soundtrack
(3) Somewhere lurking in my heart is also a rock concert hee hee)
by collecting 10,000 voices singing One Voice written by Barry Manilow.
And collectively telling the story of
“How and why each of us took the first step to arrive at singing for a fellow human being.”
Beth, my daughter, is my biggest cheerleader in this journey, and my most astute sage:
“Love is bigger than the Universe,” says Beth. “How did you know that?” I gasped. “Because that’s how my much I love Keith,” says Beth. “If love is so big, where is love?” asks the ignorant Mummy who couldn’t see how the Universe can contain something bigger than itself. “Love is everywhere, of course!” says Beth, with a how-can-you-not-see-the-obvious look. We had this conversation when Beth was 5 years old, within just a year after the birth of Keith.
