The Infinite Kaleidoscope 45 "Blanket of Calm”

"Music is a lifting force."
-David Crosby

I know that many of you are getting ready to be with family, friends, or chosen family tomorrow. For some of you it may be the first time that you will have been around people in settings like this for two years. This can cause anxiety, this can make you feel both excited and nervous, as we are still very much in a pandemic. This also feels once again like a time we’ve already experienced doesn’t it?
