Enlighten: Uplift & Inspire

I didn’t plan for, nor expect the flood of tears that came over me, and in between my sobs, I realized it took a pandemic for me to feel the raw emotions of our country’s intensified racism. It took a pandemic for me to weep in a new way for all the people of color who have been terrorized by police brutality and white supremacy.

She even says that her long road to recovery served as a warm up, preparing her well to face the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the past 2 months, during our shelter-at-home precautions for the coronavirus, I’ve done three separate 1,000 piece puzzles. So it won’t come as a surprise that I’ve been reflecting on puzzles, the metaphors they hold, and what it means to me to be puzzling through this pandemic. So instead of a guest today, I want to share with you some of my puzzle thoughts and the insights they have provided me.

Enlighten: Uplift & Inspire

Instead of a guest today, I would like to share some spiritual wisdom for these difficult times. Addressing and responding to COVID-19 marks an unprecedented moment in our history. Not just for some of us, but for all of us. Because this virus does not discriminate based on geography, culture, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic level, we are all impacted! Again not just in our neighborhood, our town, our city, our community, our county, our country, but all across the globe.

My guest today is Everett Bradley. Everett is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, and actor, who honors his mother’s courage and tenacity to have advocated for her son’s musical passion. He describes the turning point in his career from performing in the production STOMP!, to the Broadway show “Swing”, to singing and playing percussion with Hall & Oates, Bruce Springsteen, and Jon Bon Jovi.

Nearly 15 years ago, Everett created a soulful holiday show called Holidelic, that is by far one of the most uplifting, funk-filled, dynamic shows, I have ever experienced, driven by Everett’s motto “GIVE LOVE!! Everett gives his love everywhere he goes and has been involved with the  organization SAY, that creates an artistic home for youth who stutter.

Everett, aka “Rev Ev”, is also a Universal Life Church minister and has officiated 14 weddings, bringing his enthusiasm for life and love to yet another setting. He acknowledges the richness in replenishing himself in nature, with silence, solitude, and space; it is there he can honor his inner wisdom and nurture his creativity. Being in his presence, I am nourished and inspired by Everett’s honesty, humanity, authenticity, and integrity.

Check out the show notes for links to Everett’s beautiful website, look for his tour with Bon Jovi 2020 and please join me next December to see Everett perform his magical Holidelic show. You’ll also find the link for the transformative work of SAY. Enjoy the podcast!
