This post follows my post March WordPrompt: Bridge, from March 9, 2022.
I am listening to Spellbound, by Judy Collins (2022, Cleopatra Records). Beautiful.
And I think about how music builds bridges in so many ways. People and places. Also over times in a person’s life.
I listen to many artists, and their voices and poems are a part of life and memory and new hope. Voices may change. Some are no longer with us on earth. Creative work changes. And then to create in new ways – for example Joni Mitchell and her work with her archives. How hard they all work, over decades. So grateful.
In past posts, I have written about how poetry began for me with church and the Psalms. Then the artists and music. The Psalms continue as well – and now my new Bible with larger print, and new reading glasses. One day at a time, prayers for peace.
