Thursday Thingy: The 2011 Overture is ready! (new video)

Overture is defined as: 

1. An instrumental composition intended especially as an introduction to an extended work, such as an opera.

2.  An offering

A few weeks ago we decided to create an Overture together.  Ours would be composed not of music notes, but rather, notes of advice about life.   You can read (remind yourself) more about Mission #55 here.

The quotes, anecdotes and short messages quickly poured in.  Thank you again to everyone who contributed.

Then last week we all weighed in on our favorites.  Here's how we did that.

And so today,  I am pleased to present this offering... The 2011 Overture: in 25 short movements, composed by and for Mission Amy KR.
