Patterns, Swans and Singing for Ukraine

25 Mar

While we waited for the broker who is going to sell our boat for us, I enjoyed looking at the patterns made by the  reflections of masts in the water at the quayside.

Wriggly masts in reflection

No cygnets today, just the parents who mate for life.

I haven’t been going to my choir, Suitcase Singers, in Penryn for a number of reasons. Yesterday they recorded this traditional Ukrainian folk song, Zelenje zhyto, zelene transcribed by Natalie Nowyytzki, directed by Claire Ingleheart  At times like this, it is so hard to know what to do but we can always sing and use our voices in solidarity.

    I agree with you Sally sometimes all you have to give is your voice. These folks did just that! Thank you for sharing the music.
