Hi All, Pete here....We talk about it ALL THE TIME in our house. The fact that life isn't meant to be lived carefully but rather with a willingness to go over the top in the name of Love and following your heart's passion. Recently, I caught an interview with, Paulo Coelho, the author of The Alchemist, who said, and I'm paraphrasing, "In the end the meaning for our entire lives comes down to one question, did you LOVE enough?"
For me, being vulnerable falls in the category of attempting to "love enough". How? Well, when I'm vulnerable I'm more attune to the immediate moment, I'm more present. When I'm vulnerable I'm willing to ask others for help. When I'm vulnerable I'm more authentically the person I want to be in the world rather than trying to be a certain type of person. When I'm vulnerable my heart pushes the blood through my body unlike any other adrenaline rush I know. When I'm vulnerable, I shatter my own limited expectations of what I can and can't do. It's the times that I've been vulnerable that I look to as my own inspiration. And recently, Life is giving me PLENTY of chances to test my willingness!!
In the end, "Loving enough" does not necessarily mean love directed at another person, but rather, love brought into the world through me. Vulnerability allows me the opportunity to drop what I know about love and lets me BE an expression of love.
Here's a video of me assuming the "vulnerable pose" Here is the first time I've ever played piano and sung at the piano live in a public concert, hope you enjoy.
PS This song will be featured on our upcoming CD!

Kickstarter Video out! For many months we've been working on creating a plan to bring our music to you and to introduce Anne and Pete Sibley to larger audience. This campaign represents how we've moved from a "seat of our pants" approach to crafting our two-year plan. A plan which will bring our music to radio, magazines, and possibly other larger exposure opportunities.
The Kickstarter offers us a chance to get folks involved before the album is completed. This means helping support the project by either pre-ordering the CD or taking advantage of one of the other perks like a personalized song phone call. It's a fun way for us to try to raise the remaining funds which will allow us to bring our music to a wider audience than ever before. To bring our story to the world of how people are good!
