But our hearts will need us
To be steady and strong
So we can stand and face the fire
Burning higher and higher
No way over it
No way around it
If we want it
We have to go through it
Fight for a love
And the world tries to break us down
But the world will bend and the fight will end
Love will always win

Received several thank you emails from my online students today when our class finished. They never understand, I don’t think, how much I have to thank them for ❤
Create a thank you note (written, visual, musical, etc.) to someone else, someone who doesn’t realize how much gratitude your feel for them.

My son came home this weekend, to celebrate Father’s Day with me 🙂 He says since I’ve been both mother and father, I get to celebrate both days. My mama always joked, If you can stand them til they’re twenty-two, you’ll get them back as friends. 🙂 I am so grateful for those kids, my three closest friends ❤

Been hearing (and singing) this song since I woke up.
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Make art about circles, inside circles, circling, unending spirals, cycles, the circles we inhabit, the circles we create.

Thanks and Love to that fabulous poet-sister Amy Tudor for posting the article that inspires today’s prompt.
“Adults in America don’t sing communally. Children routinely sing together in their schools and activities, and even infants have sing-alongs galore to attend. But past the age of majority, at grown-up commemorations, celebrations, and gatherings, this most essential human yawp of feeling—of marking, with a grace note, that we are together in this place at this time—usually goes missing.”
Make art about singing with others, about that joining of voices.
How advanced, how enlightened, how restful a soul must be to choose to come here as a tree ❤
