Douglas Beck loves fierce landscapes and the Maritimes are inspiration to him as a place he loves to call home. These pages bring together an active life at play and work alongside prayer and contemplation. May they inspire a spirit of love, compassion, hope and service for all in the process of becoming through God’s unfolding love.
The goal for music making is the gift that music brings into each life. The physical, mental and spiritual benefits of making music reach far deeper than any performance goal.

Whatever good, inspiring idea you have… follow it to where it takes you. Don’t dismiss it…pray it, dream it, live it, share it, play it, write it, draw it, sing it. Make it real. Don’t be afraid. Enjoy the life of the Spirit within you. There you will find that you are free to learn and to co-create. When you do, you may find that you are well on your way to living a fulfilling life of discovery and inspiration.

Every life has a story to tell. We are all descendants of storytellers; all part of the narrative of humanity. We experience the world through the lens of community and the experiences of others. Be truthful ー seek and speak truthfully. Live deeply and authentically. The stories that we tell become us. Refrain from filling in the spaces of the stories of others. When we do so, we free those lives to speak so that they, too, may discover their deepest truths. Be encouraged to listen attentively to the stories of others. Tell your story so that others may grow, to learn and to be inspired to tell their stories forward. Our truths, who we are and the stories of our lives, are covered under the grace of one larger story, that of God’s narrative.
