The Thought Exchange is so original and makes such sense when you hear what it is that you might wonder why you did not think of it on your own. Well, worry not that it never occurred to you because Broadway composer and conductor David Friedman has not only thought of it but has made it a large part of his own work and is eager to share it. To listen to him talk about how to exchange one thought for another is a revelation that will release you from the burden that you have to cheer up, or get over it, or find closure. You can feel as scared as ever and be a great success just the same, daunted not by pounding heart, shifting sands under your feet, and the conviction that you are about to die of fear. The very way David talks with such candor, laughter and generosity about his own thought exchanges is an easily understandable lesson in self-acceptance. His love letter? Like so much in David’s hands, it is a creative and healing example you might want to follow.
