Blessings, Snatam Kaur
In the words of Robin Layton...
I first heard Snatam’s voice when I was at a friend’s home. I felt I had just heard an angel sing. A few months later when my Mom was receiving chemo and radiation treatments in Seattle, I felt so desperately sad and the only thing that could soothe me was listening to Snatam. It was during this moment that I reached out to her, to let her know what a gift she is to our world, how astounding her talent is and if I could offer her, as a fellow artist, my gift of photography.
While my mother was in hospice, I photographed our little time together. My mother passed in June and to honor her, I put a slide show of her last three weeks to Snatam’s song Ra Ma Da Sa. The song expressed perfectly the feelings I had of faith and hope, and mostly my thoughts when I think of God.
I have no words to describe the feeling I get when I hear Snatam sing. I feel it is the song of God singing directly to me, through me. It takes me to a place I didn’t know existed.
We were able to work together as fellow artists and I am so honored to have had the privilege to share my gifts to honor Snatam talent.
I am truly grateful for the moments I’ve shared with Snatam photographing and making our first music video together.
Thank you Snatam; thank you for being in my life and for sharing your amazing gifts with me and the world.
