A fierce green fire

I'm a bit late posting the Musing this week. I have been in Corvallis, Oregon for a gathering on Nature and the Sacred.

I was particularly honored to be part (as a reader of selections from my books) of a musical program with the Oregon State University Chamber Choir and Chamber Orchestra performing Daniel Pinkham's In the Beginning, Joseph Haydn's The Creation, and a premiere performance of Michael Coolen's In the Beginning. Hubble space photos too, projected onto a giant screen over the stage.

It was a hope-reaffirming weekend. Artists, musicians, writers, political and ecological activists, teachers, homemakers, people from all walks of life working quietly and effectively to make this planet a better place.
