In TEDxOmaha 2018, the theme Time to Engage was a platform for some amazing stories from people in our community. One of the most beautiful was from Artist Tim Guthrie, called An Artist’s Journey Through Love and Loss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci8xtEiyflM
In this beautiful, poignant, vulnerable and at times funny talk, Artist Tim Guthrie shares a personal journey of the great love and loss of his wife Beth Broderick.
Having stepped away completely from the world of art during his wife’s illness, Tim finds himself reluctantly and accidently reengaging in art as he travels the globe revisiting places Beth had loved, eventually creating an award-winning documentary called “Missing Piece” – but which he calls a ‘Love Letter’. As you will hear from Tim, he felt that moving back into art was an unbearable trade off and betrayal. An Artists Journey Through Love and Loss, explores the grieving and healing process that is unique to each one of us. Wherever you are on that journey Tim will be there to listen to what you have to say and offer you the same meta that Beth gave to others, asking you to share the words also: “May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you be safe. May you know my gratitude and love”

What did you think about this talk, what did you feel? In continuing the Time to Engage in Conversation, where do we go from here, what do we explore, what journey does this take us on, and who needs to be talking about this?
In the program we followed Tim’s talk with Matt Walkers original music composition, From What to Where, and the mindfulness meditation core of this music is best appreciated when following Tim’s talk.
