Many things have grown from The Lost Words- a spell book. Such fine and wonderful things. I love how the book has become a portal of escape for children into the outside, away from the classroom. I love how it has become a portal for those who live with dementia and the people who share their lives, again, giving escape, finding lost memories. But of all the things it’s become, and all the things I have done in my life, working with these people, at Folk by the Oak, the musicians, sound engineers, visuals, designer- working with them has been THE best thing. The best thing. Ever. I’m at a loss to say more, other than, with their craft, learned over years, they take the message deeper.
This is The Lost Words Blessing. For those who are struggling to cope with the news about climate change, I hope this brings you peace of mind to see a clear way forward, courage to make changes, to know you aren’t alone. It’s a call to link arms and stand against those who deny, those who make false gods of money.
