Ep170 Show Notes: Craig Shepard
Composer Craig Shepard finds innovative ways to bring our attention to the ordinary through music and stillness. We discuss releasing assumptions and embracing mindfulness. as well as how to build trust through small gestures.
Craig Shepard makes music related to stillness. Growing up in Connecticut, he would go for long walks in the middle of snowy nights, stopping to listen to the sheen of millions of snowflakes hitting the ground. Recent projects include On Foot: Brooklyn, a 91-day, 780-mile walking project in New York, and Trumpet City, a mass outdoor installation that has been realized in Seattle, New York City, and in Zurich and Bern, Switzerland. He directs the Music for Contemplation concert series and organizes Creating Music Together workshops and retreats.

This is awesome. It makes me think of this poem I read called “The Introvert” (http://ajdarkholme.com/poetry/the-introvert) – great description of an introvert for extroverts!
im reminded of a favorite thought from Annie Dillard:
“The answer must be, I think, that beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there.”
― Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
