How fortunate we are to make our life’s work centered on experiencing life with depth and creating a soulful response to it. – Linda Saccoccio

Dancing Fantasy, a group from Germany, had a song that played on the radio a number of years ago, entitled Walk of Life.

Something about this song resonated so strongly with me that, whenever it played, I would find myself lost in a daydream that never failed to lift my spirit. I would see myself dancing alone in the center of a large circular clearing deep within a forest – happily twirling about like a leaf carried on a gentle breeze.

She’s Sleepin’ with the Window Open

Cindi Hall: Sleepin' with the Window open CD

Art Form: Music
Singer-Songwriter: Cindi Hall
Gift Giveaways: CD, “Sleepin’ with the Window Open”

Muse-Creations for Our Forgive it Forward Giveaway – Because forgiveness and creativity go hand-in-hand for us, Ray and I thought it would be fun to spice up our 35-day Forgive It Forward project launch with a focus on the arts. So, we sent a call out to the muses among us for a little assist and some inspiration.

Between June 14th and July 19th, we introduced artists, sculptors, potters, musicians – and more – who forgave it forward with us by donating a gift for a random drawing giveaway. Each muse answered two questions and shared a little bit about their creative process and passion. We hope they inspire you.


Cindi Hall: Singer-Songwriter

Cindi Hall

Music has been a constant in Cindi Hall’s life. While other little girls were carrying around baby dolls, Cindi could always be seen holding a small microphone that came with her parents’ portable cassette player, the first piece of equipment used to record her voice.

Cindi grew up listening to her dad and uncles play guitar as her mom sang along. That family hobby turned into a college curriculum for Cindi, who studied music therapy, voice and classical piano at Radford University and Averett University in Virginia.

Active in her church music program and community musical theatre, the Covington, Georgia singer-songwriter has just released her first full CD, “Sleepin’ with the Window Open.”

So, tell us Cindi …

R&B: What does ‘Forgive it Forward’ mean to you?

CH: Forgive It Forward means, for me, to first forgive myself. That is not easy for some of us. Many people find it difficult to let go of past mistakes. Showing kindness to yourself puts you in the mindset of realizing most people really are just Read more

R&B: What does “forgive it forward” mean to you?

MS: To me, “forgive it forward” is a brilliant concept that is the ultimate expression of love and a major step toward healing the planet.  It means essentially  there is nothing to forgive – because in and through love, it is already forgiven.
