On this day in 1947, American singer-songwriter Minnie Riperton was born. She is most famous for her hit single “Lovin’ You.” Later in life, she continued to tour and record despite being diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer and given just months to live. Let’s let such talent, strength, and tenacity be an inspiration to us.
Today, try your hand at writing a song, chant, or poem about something you love, in honor of her hit song’s title “Lovin’ You.” Love is about more than romance, so really think about something you have a deep passion for. Get a pen and some paper. Set a piece of rose quartz near you and light a pink candle for a loving inspiration boost. After your writing session, safely snuff out the candle. When you’re finished with your own piece of musical love magic, find a friend you’re willing to share it with, and do so. You too can inspire others with your passions!
