Trump wants $2,000 coronavirus stimulus check

"The covert 19 relief check going to Americans. Congress approved $600 checks in the bill passed this week. The president wants to more than double that he made this announcement in a video released on social media Tuesday night. Throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked covert relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left wing agenda and influence the election. Then, a few months ago, Congress started negotiations on a new package to get urgently needed help to the American people. It's taken forever. However, the bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace. For example, among the more than 5000 pages in this bill, which nobody in Congress has red because of its length and complexity. It's called the covert Relief Bill. It has almost nothing to do with covert. This bill contains $85.5 million for assistance to Cambodia, $134 million to Burma $1.3 billion for Egypt and the Egyptian military, which will go out and buy almost exclusively Russian military equipment, $25 million for democracy and gender programs in Pakistan. $505 million to believes Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama $40 million for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D C, which is not even open for business $1 billion for the Smithsonian and an additional $154 million for the National Gallery of Art. Likewise, these facilities are essentially not open $7 million for Reef Fish management $25 million to combat Asian carp $2.5 million to count the number of amberjack fish. In the Gulf of Mexico a provision to promote the breeding of fish in federal hatcheries, $3 million in poultry production technology $2 million to research the impact of down trees. $566 million for construction projects at the FBI. The bill also allows stimulus checks for the family members of illegal aliens, allowing them to get up to $1800. Was each this is far more than the Americans were given. Despite all of this wasteful spending, and much more than $900 billion package provides hardworking taxpayers with only $600 each in relief payments and not enough money is given to small businesses. And in particular restaurants whose owners have suffered so grievously. They were only given a deduction for others to use in business there restaurant for two years, this two year period must be withdrawn, which will allow the owners to obtain financing and get their restaurants back in condition. Congress contaminated at a much later date, but two years is not acceptable. It's not enough. Congress found plenty of money for foreign countries, lobbyists and special interests while sending the bare minimum to the American people who needed. It wasn't their fault. It was China's fault, not their fault. I'm asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600. $2000 or $4000 for a couple. I'm also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a covert relief package. And maybe that administration will be me and we will get it done. Thank you very much. Statement recorded by

Steve Martin On His Years As A Comic — And Walking Away From Stand-Up

"But if you could hold Steve Martin has been making people laugh often with highly conceptual humor since the nineteen sixties when he was a staff writer on the smothers brothers comedy hour in the seventies he became a major stand up comedy star filling arenas with his fans he rose to fame along with his then new TV show called Saturday Night Live on which he made many memorable appearances as a wild and crazy guy a medieval barber and a fan of king tut eventually the fame that brought in huge audiences also made it impossible for him to do the kind of comedy that made him original he starred in movies from the jerk to parenthood and in recent years has also written plays essays and books and toured with both his bluegrass band and with friend and fellow comic Martin short Steve Martin won the Mark Twain prize for American humor in two thousand five in was a Kennedy center honoree in two thousand seven Terry gross spoke with Steve Martin in two thousand eight about his memoir born standing up Steve Martin welcome back to fresh AIR eleven returning her thank you I thank you very much I'd like you to open with a reading from the beginning of the book and we've we've edited the slightly to make it crystal a little shorter for the broadcast great be happy to I did stand up comedy for eighteen years ten of those years were spent learning for years were spent refining and for years were spent in wild success I was seeking comic originality and fame fell on me as a by product the course was more plodding than her ROIC I did not strive valiantly against doubters but took incremental steps started with a few intuitive leaps I was not naturally talented I didn't sing dance or act the working around that minor detail made me inventive I was not self destructive though I almost destroyed myself in the end I turned away from stand up with the tired swivel of my head and never looked back until now a few years ago I began researching and recalling the details of this crucial part of my professional life which inevitably touches upon my personal life and was reminded why I did stand up and why I walked away in a sense this book is not an autobiography but a biography because I am writing about someone I used to know yes these events are true yet sometimes they seem to have happened to someone else and I often felt like a curious onlooker or someone trying to remember a dream I ignored my stand up career for twenty five years but now having finished this memoir I view this time with surprising warmth one can have it turns out an affection for the war years thanks for reading that that Steve Martin reading from his memoir born standing up which has just been published in paperback yeah I guess I didn't realize how much you closed the door on your comedy years how much there was like a before and after it ended you were done and that was it right I I I'm it was about nineteen eighty one I still had a few obligations left but I knew that hi I could not continue but I guess I could have continued if I had nothing to go to but I did have something to go to which was movies and you know the act had become so known that in order to go back I would have had to create an entirely new show and I wasn't up to it especially when the opportunity for movies and writing movies came around why would you have to create an entirely new show well like I say the the the act was really it there is a passage in the book which I caught because it was so hard to explain but the act essentially besides all the jokes and bits and everything was conceptual and once the concept was understood there was nothing more to develop it's like saying painting the same blank canvas over and over and over and over and over once the concept is no you don't see the need to see to that and that was in the back of my head that I was really done artistically with with what I had created or pastiche to you know in the reading that you just did you describe yourself as not being naturally talented did you think of yourself as naturally funny I'm I didn't didn't think of myself in that way no although I I just love to comedy I I was raised with laurel and hardy and I Love Lucy Anne and Jerry Lewis and I just loved it and I had a friend in high school and we would just laugh all day and put on skits and you know it's the Andy Kaufman thing over to Marty short thing where you're performing in your bedroom for yourself and I I loved magic and so I would practice my magic tricks in front of a mirror for hours and hours and hours because I was told that you must practice you must practice and never present a trip before it's ready but I was just inclined toward show business but I didn't know what I just like being on stage you got your start working in Disneyland you were living in southern California and when you were ten you were selling guidebooks there then you later work for magic shop demonstrating magic tricks and I get the sense from your memoir that demonstrating those magic tricks you know hours a day and really getting them getting them down because you're doing them so much that that gave you a sense that performance required a great deal of craft that even comedy wasn't just a question of going out on stage and saying funny things that there was enormous amounts of work and practice and thought that would have to go into it well that that idea of that that you really had to work at this stuff didn't necessarily come from Disneyland it I I mean I think yes and in terms of presenting a trick but having having it so well honed in your mind was really giving me a sense of security it was I don't want to go out there half baked and you know you learn that through the years you know you're you do a magic show with a friend and you rehearse it a couple of times and yes every all the timing has to be exactly perfect but while you're out there it's it's a different world it's not your mirror you have to make on the spot adjustments but that's just you know whatever entertainer does actually working at the magic shop really gave me a sense of comedy because it was all the jokes we did the tricks but we have all these jokes I had a friend Jim Barlow who you know he he was the the guy I worked with there but he had patter worked out you know it he would go to customers and say Medicare money I mean help you not and you know call them suckers it was really funny and and kind of friendly rude what was your patter I just took all of Jim's patter I'm I'm trying to think of other ones yeah I said it would just it would somebody would buy something it would say and because you are hundred customer today you get a free paperback it's a little silly things like that but Disneyland I'm fifteen right here at early act was a combination of banjo playing juggling magic tricks and comedy and some of that stating your later at two but it sounds like a vaudeville act yes I was very interested involved it was the only sort of discipline that was a five minute act on stage which is what I really enjoyed ins and saw myself doing and I bought books on it I went to the Long Beach pike which was off the carnival fair you know four is really a place for drunken sailors to get tattoos but there was also side shows is very interested in that but you know there is these are all in there these are short acts there was one of the employees at Disneyland that I worked with was named Steve Stewart and he worked in vaudeville and he did a sack for me one day on the floor of the magic shop and I had a couple of great gags one was that I actually used and I asked him if I could use them because I was very strict about using any material that wasn't mine or that that was taken from somebody else let's put it this way I became strict wasn't strict at first there is one trick that one joke that Dave steward did where he said are not yet a glove white glove in his hand the magicians glove any he said and now the glove into dove trick and he threw it into the air and then it hit the floor and he just looked at it and consent and set up for my next trick he went on and it was the first time I saw comedy created out of nothing of nothing happening and I Glaum don to that wait wait wait you're doing I think is not only making comedy out of nothing but making comedy out of people's expectations which you were going to fail to fulfill well yes exactly and I I really started that when I became a semi professional meaning I was working the local folk music clubs going around either working for free or for a week and I quickly decided that you know the material was you know good or weak or whatever and I decided whatever it was I was going to pretend like it was fantastic and how great am I how great is what you're seeing and I think that's what grizzly hunting it's a tune him too because they couldn't believe that someone actually was that confident

S. army corps of engineers the department of the interior they're all getting funds to enhance telework capabilities huh I think issues like everybody else no two billion dollars for information technology funding includes increasing telework well there's a lot of very top secret stuff yeah I get a couple dozen guys to go in there and teach you how to encrypt it number done the Kennedy center of performing arts okay you ready for this the Kennedy center of performing arts Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats slipped in a twenty five million dollar package for the Kennedy center of performing arts all right well they need deep cleaning they need increased teleworking capabilities what what they need the operating administrative expenses they they can ensure the center will resume normal operations me leap on reopening do you know what the Kennedy center of performing arts annual budget is thirty seven million and they want twenty five million and they're getting it are you can you do to what couldn't Nancy Pelosi column summer rich buddies who like the arts and say Hey can you throw a few million here so we can take care of the deep cleaning of the art center no no you have to do it public broadcasting getting seventy five million dollars that's money well spent nationalism of the arts and humanities getting a hundred fifty million for grants including funding to state art agencies and other partners in an effort to help local state regional communities provide continued access to cultural organizations really that's a risk that's a risk right now I don't see how that's a risk right now ET nobody's going to all the things that I will wait till it's over and then popping back up again hi I don't know man I must be missing something I need people to explain it to me so pelo see handsome stuff she really wanted she she basically was holding the country hostage she basically was doing her own quid pro quo she will impeach trump over a quid pro quo that really didn't exist she's doing a real quid pro quo against the American people some of whom are literally dying and she sees that as she is there for the little guy yes let's hear cut thirteen from Nancy Pelosi you have got thirteen I feel certain that we will have a strong bipartisan vote and take some pride in the fact that as I said earlier dem congressional Democrats in the Senate in in the house were able to flip this over from corporate fickle down Republican version to bubble up for for first families first legislation would a total lie in load of crap that is okay the Republicans want to both money straight to the workers and money for the businesses because if you don't keep their businesses afloat there's no job for people to go back to you work in a restaurant you're a waitress you can't work right now because nobody is allowed to come in well guess what even if you get money and it carries you through here if you come back in the business that you been a waitress at for the last five years is no longer in business we don't have a job so now what you need a little bit of both there Nancy come on well how about cut six for Nancy Pelosi everything that we do in this bill is about the workers and so it where there is any other transfer of funds to any entity it is for them to keep their and workers employed or pay benefits to their employees so and nothing is going to anybody without conditions and her conditions voicing and there there's no conditions on people getting the twelve hundred twenty four hundred but what what is that she really really wanted she wanted some crazy stuff grants for conducting election audits does that sound like it's going to work for same day voter registration really does that help a worker access for early voting these are all this is the democratic wishlist collective bargaining for federal workers has nothing to do with a corona virus a federal study on climate mitigation efforts expanded solar and wind energy tax credits that the airlines fully offset their annual carbon emissions for domestic flights beginning in twenty twenty five did they give passengers information regarding greenhouse gas emissions they wanted the so called the verse that the requirements in boardrooms and none of this stuff has anything to do with saving people's jobs and saving people's businesses and that's what she was holding you the American people hostage for what people remember this I hope people remember this but Nancy's out there spinning like a top listen to cut nine Kristin this about this is a really important to know this this is all about the corona virus it's not about anything else it's about the corona virus said this is temporary for this period of time and and it's important to know that because people civil why should we do it because it's a clone of virus to public health issue and we have to keep people as healthy as we can everything I just mentioned had nothing to do with the crown of ours nothing but she's telling you it is missions from airplanes has to do the coronavirus cut ten listen to Nancy there is a concern in a.

"We have way too many buildings in this city. That look like they've had some really bizarre attachment like hooked up the hip of the building itself. And so he did he is created something magnificently beautiful and lyrical so appropriately adding to this memorial to John F. Kennedy and as soon as you start going underground and using concrete and embedding it and thinking about how you would deal with light and and water and the environment because it's also a very quiet environment so being really quiet on the inside is really important to us. Because that's what you need for performing arts but we're right next to two highways So we're we're basically encircled by highways. How do you create that quiet? Well through thick walls through thick window panes through the ability to have absorbed materials and being underground makes a huge impact. So I don't think the Kennedy Center Board said we will build a lead gold building but rather by choosing this magnificent visionary and by approaching it in this way we realized that we could really do something special. Couple of quick career questions Tell me about a moment mid career. Whatever that feels like to you where you had to make you made a decision that turned out to be pivotal. Why you think was pivotal. In retrospect and and what the what that tells you about making decisions going forward so why mid career take your pet you can choose however you off. Well I I have there. Several moments probably each position that I've had where I on in the moment understood that either by turning writer turning left or speaking up or not speaking up or saying we will do this or not. sor- sort of takes you in another direction and I can say that when I was building a concert hall and Seattle. There was a moment When a community group came to us and said we want you to move the location of the concert hall that you're building from the one that was for decades established in one location and they had been working for years and years to try and develop the project in one location but later Of Community Group came forward and said we thank. You should consider moving it to another location if I had said. Nope my major donor wants it there. I'm GonNa do it only there. Forget it the Bene- Roy Hall would be at Seattle Center and not across the street from the art museum and I will tell you that the the the team on either side were equally powerful but the concept of saying we could be downtown and we can change the face of downtown Seattle forever and if you go back to the history books. They'll tell you that Ben Arroyo hall coming to downtown Seattle Change Downtown Seattle because it was not an active vibrant place. It was not a destination and today it is incredible now. I'm not the only person who was involved without of course but if I had absolutely stood and insisted that we stay only with this one donor who had been funding the project up until that point we would be a totally different that that the Seattle symphony and downtown Seattle. It would be completely different and there are moments like that in each job. I think probably many of them here. The project when I first got here was at the fifty percent of design drawing for the expansion and they wanted me to sign off and I hadn't even started work here. They wanted me to sign off on fifty percent of designed drying and I said. Why are we building building? Well you want you know. Few more rehearsal. Rooms and couple classrooms probably frustrated. The heck out of him and so we stopped and it did frustrate them today. Stephen Hall will tell you that he was so overjoyed at that moment because he knew that it could be more but it was a little scary at the time. I think we all look back and say that was really pivotal moment here at the center. I think those things happen to most of us more frequently than we think. But you don't always have the same scale of it I there moments. It's about risk taking and listening to yourself and not being overly conscious for me. At least about you know if you do too much of the list of pros and cons. You'll kill yourself. You'll never make a decision. I really believe that a certain point. You have to listen to your heart. Listen to your gut and go with your instinct and do that with insights from other people. But that's probably a little bit of the sense of creativity allowing your voice to be heard even if it's only in your own head combination of data and magic if you will what I'm hearing you say is a combination of listening intuition. And what's also interesting about those stories is that especially the one about here is that you were new so you didn't have clout established yet. You were still like. Who is this woman? We know she has a great track record. Whatever but they didn't know anything about your decision making process really. I mean they were just so you. That was very courageous of you to take that Stan because you could have been alienating these this team that you now have to manage and you need their buy in to do your job so that was a big risk and so but but your point about following. Your intuition is really putting listening to other people in this. It sounds like you. You kind of know intuitively well in the end you know. Probably everybody was longing for that pause and so call it. Courage cullet Whatever you will but I think what I was doing was reading the room I think in the end everybody was saying. What are we really doing here? Can we can we talk about this a little bit more? So it's about not putting yourself out I so I I believe that I'm here to fulfill a mission and it's not my own egos mission. It's the mission of our institution. How do we become the national truly? Become the national cultural centre. How do we fulfill that mission? It's interesting because so often you hear leaders that have the bully pulpit that you have talked about wanting to leave their mark on an institution and that that that's like not your not your game at all you WanNa. Maybe it's because you're emission based Nonprofit but it's also. I think in today's world. Social Entrepreneurship is the name of the game and even big companies like PNG and and Deloitte and others you you have to have a mission in order to be successful and to attract people so enclosing We do like to focus on mid-career women because that's where the fall off is to leadership. So what advice would you give to a woman who is in mid career? Whatever that means to her or to you that who wants to use her education and her experience in. She's ambitious. She wants to make a lot of money but she wants to. Make a difference and again like you. It's not an ego thing. It's wanting to be ambitious and successful but also wanting to make a difference. What career advice would you give her? Well I have never been motivated by personal ambition. I have only ever been motivated by a fulfilling opportunities that I see around me and most of those are related to artists and the impact of art on other people so it goes to this issue of how can I make difference And through whatever it is whatever my special talent might be. I'll tell you what my special talent is. I work hard. I have no other special talent. Honestly it's just because I put in the time I talk about this with my daughter all the time because very often people and teachers will have said to her Jillian. I I value you more because you work hard. It's not just because you have talent that you get to do all of this stuff but you really dedicate yourself to whatever it is. You're doing so I'm persistent and I work really hard and if you keep working hard and you think about other people probably more than you think of yourself you will have opportunities and there are countless moments where you will feel like you have been shunted aside ignored Somebody else's had an opportunity that you haven't had but if you keep working hard and you really dedicate yourself to fulfilling the potential of who you are and what your project is I don't want to sort of copycat those sort of ideas that have been put forward. But I'm a big believer on you know. Show up and pay attention if you're there if you're paying attention if you're volunteering. Whatever that form of volunteers stepping forward to say. Oh I can do that and then me and do it. Don't wait to be invited because you may not wait. Be You may not get invited and that is not about you know. I'm going to choose my friend over this person or a male over a female It really is about people. Choose people they know. So if you are not known now you need to step forward and So this is the sort of family motto. Show up and pay attention and you will have whatever opportunity To prove yourself but you have to take it you have to fulfil on that. I love that and a couple of things. Come to my mind. One is of course the Woody Allen Line of ninety percent of life is showing up but also I interviewed Angela. Duckworth who wrote the book called Grit. How the power of passion and perseverance and it's about how in effect effort when you're talking about his effort putting in the hard work and doing the work showing up is more powerful and and gives better result than pure natural talent. I mean you hear these stories of these musicians for example who were born with extraordinary talent but they don't practice and they don't you know they're kind of a pain in the butt to deal with and this and they didn't have an ad you know it's like I don't care if they're brilliant they're paying to deal with so and so it reminds me of Angela's book a lot in her and her extraordinary tedtalk which has sixteen million views so Thank you so much. This has been really amazing Deborah wetter. I really appreciate thank you. It's been fun talking with you. Good so thank you so much for joining us today.

"Artists are using their senses all the time they observe the world around them and continuously collect raw material which they use later in their work that was also from was Oscar. He continued very briefly for an artist. Anything can be raw material. Their key artists are curious about anything they come across. And if you want to innovate that is exactly what you should do. I couldn't agree more with Zaslavsky. Innovation is indeed a marriage of art method and to explore this connection. And more. We've come to one of the world's most venerable institution's of creativity the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington. Dc since one thousand nine hundred seventy one. The Kennedy Center has been reflecting and driving the conversation about the performing arts in the United States and around the globe a few months ago the Kennedy Center expanded creating a new campus focused on bringing the public into the creative process called reach. They also made sure to build it with sustainability in mind including as an lead certified building. We're here to talk about the intersection of art. Innovation including managing creative people in the creative process and the new reach campus and some of its sustainability features and get a bit of career advice from their esteemed leader. I'd like you to meet Deborah. Rutter President and artistic and administrative director of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts which the website describes as the world's busiest Performing Arts Center. Okay so I'm a native New Yorker and I think the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts argue with that label a little bit but we'll let slot. Deborah has been in management her entire career coming to the Kennedy Center in two thousand fourteen after many years as president of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. One of the world's most claimed orchestras and before that executive director of the Seattle Symphony. She has Grad undergraduate degree from Stanford in her MBA from USC. And I have to throw in the because I am a ucla alum myself. I'll have to forgive you about that. One Fun factoid about Deborah is she has been on both sides of the baton having played violin in orchestras throughout her education. I tried the violin without much success however so without further. Ado I'm delighted. The Deborah's joining us live in person at the Kennedy Center. Welcome Deborah to green connections radio. Thank you for joining us. Thank you and welcome to the Kennedy Center. Thank you so much. I am a particular fan of the performing arts having grown up around them in New York City and is dancer myself and I come from a long line of accomplished musicians so I feel at home. I WANNA start off with a few questions. What's your favorite book? Well I just read at last fall tunnel. Pc Coats the water dancer and it has stayed in my heart my mind And played back over and over again and so It is the first one that just sort of POPs out of my head. I just love the way he writes. I love his perspective and I thought the book was magnificent cool. Who is your favorite woman leader? Well it's hard not to say Ruth Bader GINSBURG In this city she is remarkable for her personal leadership professional leadership and her passion for the arts. But I would say madeleine. Albright is a close second. I love it. I saw all the movies in their terrific. Let me put the Kennedy Center into perspective with a few factories for anybody who doesn't know this. It hosts over two million visitors a year with over twenty two hundred performances each year that I had no idea over. Four hundred of them are free by the way. If you WANNA come come on down and it serves about one point. Four million students per year and has programs around the country as well so let me dive into it this way. How does the Kennedy Center choose which performances to host or produce? Because I would imagine you could do seven times. Well it would be hard because there are only three hundred sixty five days a year and there are a few of those days that are more challenging. I will tell you it's harder to program on Super Bowl Sunday than it is on Christmas Day Which is not something. Most people would think about So the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is the nation's cultural center and I say that because many people either don't know or forget that and when I came to the center I really took that responsibility seriously and I with my colleagues thought hard about whether or not we were really fulfilling the mandate to be the National Cultural Center. Which for me and my colleagues means not just the three big three four big art forms that people think of in these big performing arts centers so beyond Theatre Opera Symphony Orchestra Ballet Dance. How do you really fulfill the mandate to serve all of our country and all of the performing arts to all of our country and so as a result we have added quite a bit in terms of what we produce what we present here as well? When I came here we already had a very successful Jazz Program Chamber Music We have colleagues who present in the community from the community here at the center as well and our international festivals have been always a big draw. But we knew that there were art forms and artists. That didn't feel that they had a home here at the center so it was really over the the this period of time that we've been expanding the variety of programming that we have give us an example so we have a director of hip hop and artistic director and also a program director of hip hop. We had when I first came here. We were presenting three or four comedy shows a year and of course Mark Twain Prize which everybody knows so. Well now we do about seventy of those each year and I would say increasingly the program that is Really the most exciting is the art form that you can't describe it's the one that's the blend of hip hop theater or music and dance. That might be nontraditional in presentation format so it is those sort of boundary genre just breaking art forms that are really the ones that changing the way people think about the Kennedy Center as well. And that's what creativity is about. Right is is stretching the boundaries. Creating breaking them down really creative. People are a unique breed. We're curious for energetic. We also can be quixotic. And frankly edgy and just odd right. Not everyone can manage creative people successfully. You seem to be a master of it. You've done it your whole career in arts manager Performing Arts Management and you obviously managed a huge team. Here what do you think is unique about managing creative people? And what recommendations would you give to any manager business leader? Who wants to manage for creativity manage creative people? I think probably the most important one is to being a good listener and listen for understanding compassion and beyond the most immediate Definition of how an artist or an individual's describing what they're thinking about and I say that I'm not a very patient person. If you asked anybody around me you would say well. Patients is not a virtue of Deborah Rutter. But I in the case of when I'm engaging with creative people I listen and wait for deeper understanding of what they're trying to communicate and what they're trying to achieve I do not make snap opinions about an artist's idea. In fact I think many of my colleagues would love made make faster decisions or brush aside an idea or accept another idea faster but I think you need to allow an artist and their idea unfold and further develop and for other than to offer ideas and ways to expand on. Whatever that creative spark might be I I think that comes from my own little bit of insecurity of do. I really understand what they're trying to do. Why are they trying to do that? We have I missed something and so it is a process of waiting and letting it. An idea simmer An and not having prejudged opinion about what's going to be good or not. I think also you have to give up a little bit of control in that process and so I find that people who need to know the shape of package need to know the length of the project need to know you know what the final outcome is going to be will never be as good at pulling out the potential of an artist or creative individual as one who is willing to let it just unfold and so while I am not in a patient person. I actually understand that the process of developing an idea takes time. It doesn't happen on a specific time schedule. Always but that if you can give an artist space and time or create any creative individual because there are plenty of creative individuals would not say that they're artists if you give them the space to really develop their ideas it will be much better one at the end and that we can all sort of jump on the bandwagon and go with. I'll give you a really good example. When Renee Fleming was invited by myself to come and be an artistic partner. She came into sort of a planning meeting with me and then subsequent meetings with colleagues with sheets and sheets of ideas she. She is amazing. It coming up with all kinds of thoughts and processes aware. She grabbed this idea. Where did this project come from and I listened and I thought Oh my Gosh. This is almost too many really great ideas. What are we going to do but by having multiple conversations with her and then having that conversation with others as well we realized that there was the potential of something really monumental that we could do uniquely here in Washington DC and with Renee Fleming and ultimately it was about having multiple conversations and then she sat next to Francis Collins Director of the National Institutes of Health at a dinner party and they were talking about it and he too said Oh. My Gosh this is really extraordinary. And because we allowed this idea to simmer and percolate and talk with other people about it we eventually created a program called sound health and it is a project that had its early beginnings here at the center in a very small way with the concerts at the NIH with the National Symphony Orchestra but it has now grown over these years to be a movement around the study of the impact of music on the brain. The National Institutes of health are now investing quite significantly in research in this area. We have a partner in the National Endowment for the arts. We're looking at extending that partnership and we've been doing national programs. Rene takes this program whenever she goes anywhere on tour and it has become a really important part of the Kennedy Center and it all came out of this conversation with her amongst a list of many ideas that she had that said. I think there's something about arts and wellness that I think we should be studying and I thought how in the world are we gonNa do this or are we going to be selling candles aromatherapy candles at the gift shop. What is this going to be? And if I had at that moment said not really are deal. It would never have come to this place where we're doing something that is so important for our country not let alone having some understanding of the importance of music and brain health and brain development. Does that make sense? It's perfect actually and there's so many things come to mind one is The the audio that is related to getting good sleep now as well and also. I'm actually thinking of people who have who are on the autism spectrum who may not do as well with words but respond well to the arts She's brilliant. I adore her And so I. I love that you didn't. You didn't let the overwhelm shut you down having you know when you've reached that point of what's your criteria that sounds like you don't actually have a checklist. Fortunately but what Wyche how do you? How can you tell when you arrived at that? Cool idea that ties it all together or that. You're going to move forward with well. I think this is the fundamental concept of an artist. Which is that. A true artist is never fully satisfied. They're always searching. They're always looking for the right next thing and have we done enough and is this right. That's about personal growth. That's about curiosity that's about ongoing investment of creativity and so It's hard to answer that question without falling back on that but I will say that it is There is always that moment. The tipping point that moment when you say a. Ha this actually is resonating with other people as well And I have some really great colleagues on my staff here. Who will come listen to an idea? And then ask a million questions so that you can further refine define and improve on your ideas so that it actually can go further when we were developing the reach..
