One of my fondest memories of early parenthood was a spontaneous nightly ritual of singing or humming to my young child. No one told me to do so. It simply arose from my heart.
It feels helpful in dark times to do the same for our own hearts entrusted in our care.
Amid despair and uncertainty for our planet and signs that America will be the first country out of 99% of countries on Earth to disavow climate change treaties and take the P out of our Environmental Protection Agency, it can feel like all our past actions on behalf of our common home are flushed down a toilet. We only need to sing to our hearts to know no action in love is ever wasted. Take heart. Be heart. Know one way or another our hearts are joined, singing a way forward.
