Not more than 24 hours ago, I got a text from Michelle that said: "Mindy. I'm gonna use Hourglass for my Lancôme video for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Comes out this week. That song was so sweet and touching." After I stood up on the couch and jumped up and down shouting with joy I texted her back and said, "Well I better make a little music video then."
The universe was merciful during the next few hours as I made calls to find the right producer and guitarist - not an easy thing to do with only a few hours to make it happen. Lucky for me, yesterday was the one day this week that director, Jed Wells was available, and though I had never worked with him before, fate brought Robbie Connolly of Fictionist into my hands and he pulled off a JAW DROPPING performance of the song. Then, Scott Wiley just happened to be available to help polish up the live audio. The moral of the story: when something is meant to be, the universe will provide it. Beautiful.
*But on a more personal note, this song is not about makeup artists, directors, worthy causes or blah, blah, blah. It's really about my two sons - which I might add, are more than worthy causes who provide the deepest meaning that my life has for me.
