We had a beautiful fall weekend, the warm weather came back, and the foliage is starting to peak in Vermont. My neighbor and I were having one of our back yard conversations, and I realized that we oscillate between the really big problems of the world, and then small things, like when to pull out the sunflowers from the garden or about the beautiful leaves. Of course these little things don’t fix the problems. But maybe anything that restores us can give us energy to fight for what’s just, and remind us of the world that we’re working so hard to create. This week we have some beautiful music from Maivish, Owen Morrison, Dominique Dodge, and Jeremiah McLane. Margaret Youngberg reads a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins, and Julie reads a poem by Susan Reid and a poem by Rumi. Take care, everyone.
