I recently listened to a Rosanne Cash TedWomen 2021 talk. It was inspiring. She is a wonderful storyteller. In the talk, she shared music and wisdom. I felt moved to pass some of it along.
If you haven't seen it, you can find it here. I think it's worth the watch.
This is the portion of her talk I've seen quoted most often, but I also loved this one.
The longer context for these quotes was as follows:
"We're all just radios hoping to pick up each other's signals. And some of those signals have a backbeat and a melody and they're universal. And music can unlock a frozen memory that melts into the seeds of our creativity. And the reverse is also true. A memory can unlock a song that's waiting to be written. " - Rosanne Cash TedWomen. 2021
