Welcome to Keeping the Dream

Written by on April 13, 2012 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

After a long absence I am returning to writing and singing, creating and dreaming. The last time I sang anywhere publicly was almost three years ago, one month before a very dear friend of mine died, after a long bout with cancer. Before that I lost my beloved sister to cancer. It was too much. I haven’t sung since.

Just last week another dear friend died suddenly. No one saw it coming. And something ignited within me. I look at their lives cut short, and I think that is wrong. It’s just wrong.

And I realized that I could not add to that wrongness with the wrongness of my quitting. Not just a recent project I had considered dropping, but this path I had started walking years ago. They all believed in me. I cannot turn my back on that.

So I will sing and I will write and I will continue to ask questions and seek answers…and dream. They would want me to.

About the Author

About the Author: Greetings, fellow dreamer, and welcome! I’m Demian Yumei, author, singer/songwriter and artist activist. Some of my creative projects are a CD of healing music, “For the Sake of Love” and a children’s book on the interconnectedness of life, “Little Yellow Pear Tomatoes” published by Illumination Arts. Currently, I’m in the process of creating podcasts for my book series on covert abuse. My commitment is to the creative process especially as it relates to the healing journey. Whether I’m singing at a vigil for asylum seekers, memorial for political activists or sitting around a table sharing tea and conversation with friends who just want to talk heart to heart, I am always deeply moved by the human spirit to love and live with authentic beauty. Thank you for being here, for reading my posts and/or listening to my podcast. There’s much to share, much to create and the journey has just begun! Meet you on the path. .
