For me, good music is the ultimate expression of human emotion. A simple note or lyrical combination can illuminate exactly what’s on our hearts and minds, sometimes expressing it more perfectly than we can ourselves. This section of the blog, Audible Heartbeats, features the songs that speak to us, and for us…

Open, by the Canadian-Danish duo Rhye, found its way into my rotation last Winter. It played on repeat as I watched the footage of Julia in Japan. It’s moody and vulnerable and heartfelt, all of the emotions I felt as I worked to craft a story that’s reflective of her journey. The lyrics, “stay open,” encouraged me to do just that – stay open to the story that wanted to be told.
