World Peace Day, One Day One Choir and Love

Today twenty Cornish choirs have been singing outside Truro Cathedral or in the nearby Methodist Church in an event which spanned eight hours. To quote one of my lovely singing buddies, Jan,  “What a truly magical, uplifting, awe inspiring, heart wrenching, happy, wonderful day spent in Truro with friends from everywhere celebrating World Peace Day! How we all need to smile, send our love and peace to all our brothers and sisters and stop this nastiness, unrest and hatred!
I am going to try and be nice to everyone !”

A huge Thank you to Paul for the enormous amount of organisation that must have gone on to make this such a smooth running, successful and satisfyingly moving day.

Singing for Peace, Steam Train and Raindrops

Tomorrow my choirs are to be part of a world event – One Day One Choir, A Global Project for Peace. I am telling you about it today so that you can find out if you, too, can join some singing somewhere in the world and be a part of this amazing day. http://www.onedayonechoir.org/    Our day is being organised by Paul Haines about whom I have written before while he was on his Pilgrimage for Peace – click here to read more about that adventure and to find other links.

We heard that a steam train was coming by this morning so joined several neighbours to hang out over the bridge to watch the Cathedrals Express race through – and it did, smothering us all in smoke and steam and evoking memories of our childhoods. For those who would like to know such detail, it was LMS Princess Class 4-6-2 no 46201 Princess Elizabeth.

We pulled our first leeks today and I loved how the raindrops were still hanging on to virtually vertical leaves.
