Other Worlds

Kathleen Pogue White, who recently celebrated a milestone birthday and was not at our gathering, sent out the following video in the flow of our most recent wave of connections.  It is like a song we actually played and many of us sung at the gathering. While consistent with the theme of our work, the video also evokes the presence of another world often left unseen.  Indeed just on the other side of the glass from us in Leiden were homeless men and women, many from cultures and circumstances different from those assembled to “dance.”  As hosts we sought but did not make this level of connection happen. May this offering be a reminder to us of the more, the many, and the forgotten in our midst who are also we.  As the song says, we all need someone to stand by me…
