Sunday Selections

How shall we live?

Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.

– Terry Tempest Williams, When Women Were Birds

***

My life flows on an endless song

Above earth’s lamentation

I hear the sweet though faroff hymn

That hails a new creation.

Through all the tumult and the strife

I hear the music ringing

It finds an echo in my soul

How can I keep from singing?

 

– Old Christian Hymn

  1. This one is for Andrea. For Beth. For Jean. Their sweet voices have filled my days with joy and celebration and shown me the incredible healing power of music.

    To hear Andrea sing “How can I keep from singing?” a cappella, pop over here and treat yourself to her cd http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/andreaosborne. Her voice is amazing (you can hear snippets through that link) and all proceeds go to NC Alzheimer’s Association.

    Hope today catches you singing!
