While I was off on all my history jaunts, Elizabeth was at Village Harmony. Village Harmony is this fun concept where musicians go around the world to tiny villages to collect songs. They bring them back to the U.S. and then offer singing camps and retreats for teens and adults.
After the participants learn all the music they go on tour to tiny villages in Quebec and New England. The villages put together potluck dinners and host the teens. So, the villages all come together in many ways though food, music, and fellowship.
Here they are on the last night singing a song with prose from Wendell Berry. It is incredibly beautiful.
We picked up Liz this past weekend. This photo says so much about the power of music to cement friendships and world understandings. It was a difficult goodbye.
