“…a story about how we begin to remember…”- Paul Simon

Listening to Under African Skies while driving under them with my son was an incredible privilege that moved me to tears.  And he too, felt something profound in the words and music from Paul Simon’s Graceland Album as we drove along our 2+ week journey from Cape Town to Johannesburg.

This is the powerful pulsing of love in the vein

What were we remembering?  Our connection? Joy in discovering together? Gratitude for our time?  Something deeply profound about humanity?

These are the roots of rhythm

And the roots of rhythm remain

I have learned so much on this journey and am so grateful.  I arrive home quite tired, yet with renewed commitment to teaching improv in a way that helps people tap into divine play with others. This too, is profound!

As we experience playing together in a safe and honoring environment we remember and celebrate our humanity!

And it is a different song on the same LP, but hey…

We all will be received in Graceland!
