“A song fluttered down in the form of a dove,
And it bore me a message, the one word-Love!” ~ Paul Laurence Dunbar
I was mixing this song when George Floyd was killed. I had lived in Minneapolis for a few years, and the rioting was very concerning to me, occurring in places once familiar to me. I was seeking peace in the midst of the ensuing social and political upheaval of the Black Lives Matter movement.
I could hear the doves outside my window in the early mornings before the sounds of humanity began for the day.
It is my belief that when bad things happen, we must be intentional to contribute something positive to counterbalance it: a song, some art, a garden, a poem.
Peace be with you!
