11. Dust Dry
Notes: Written at a time when my soul felt dry and fragile in response to wildfires, drought, racial injustice, pandemic, climate and political crises... I needed a song that recognized how I felt, but could also call on hope, water, justice, breath, vision -- and a song I could bring to groups which could be quickly taught and singers could name what they wanted to call for themselves. I love the determination and sharpness I feel at the beginning, followed by a peaceful settling when the rain "falls down" on us all.
Check out the home page or the shownotes to Episode #10 to join the "in-group" that gets a colorful, thoughtful weekly email.
If you'd like to bring this song to your own groups, simply let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nuts and Bolts: 4:4, Aeolian (natural minor) zipper song with body percussion.
Join the A Breath of Song mailing list to receive a heads up as a new episode is released, plus a large version of the artwork, brief thoughts from my slightly peculiar brain... and occasional extras when they seem vitally important! No junk -- I will never sell your address. I read out all your names into my living room when I send new mailings... I appreciate the connection to you who are listening and singing these songs with me.

So timely. Still loving that you're doing this and hoping there are some children out there singing with you.

Thanks for the comment, Stephanie! I know of at least 3 kids who listen... and there are many people I don't know who are listening, so who knows how many more?! I'm so glad you're listening and getting pleasure out of it...
