Listen to your own heartbeat ... naturally

This week, we're beginning to hear a new tune.

When the noise is loud, it's hard to hear anything but.

When the music is loud, it's easy to become noise.

Instruments combine and notes become melodies.

Different sounds come together to form song.

Each sound has a role. Each note has a place.

Life in nature exists in perfect harmony.

Our goal is to maintain this beauty.

Our voices combine in all nature.

We come together in harmony.

We are making music together.

We gather for actual concerts.

We call for more from less.

A single note is beautiful.

Combining many is, too.

Where is our harmony?
