I had an idea this year for Valentine's Day.
I thought it would be really nice to release a version of Swing, (the only love song I've written in a while...) for my mailing list.
Then I thought - why stop at a version of the song? Why not create a video for the song?
Then I started thinking about different things I could do - I had some nice ideas, some pretty thoughts, but then settled on the winner.
I decided that it would be great to include people's stories, your stories, of love.
So, I asked, and you responded.
With the most beautiful stories!
...There's the story of how a couple met on a blind date and has been married for 40 years.
...Or how a husband visits his wife struggling with dementia every single day. She doesn't know him, so he has to reintroduce himself at each lunch.
...A man told me of how his rescue dog saves him from chronic pain, even though doctors had told him there was no cure.
...A couple told me that they locked eyes from across the gym. (I guess working out does have benefits!)
...A friend told me about how much she loves her daughters, not just because she loves them and they're family, but because they all really like each other.
The stories are fantastic. Beautiful. Moving. Inspiring.
The world can use more love - actually - the world needs more love, so we're going to give it to them.
If you'd like to share your story and be a part of the music video, you can tell your story and send a video or photo to me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for sharing the love!
