Thank you so much for posting Leonard’s speech! It was very moving to hear him speak of finding his voice and his song. I particularly like what he said about his search for his “impermanent self”. I hadn’t really thought of it this way before but all creative endeavors are just this, a unique expression of our impermanent self. The creation of the various arts is a gifting back the product of one’s experience to the whole that gave rise to the conditions that gave rise to the work in the first place.
