cover crops. cover crops like alfalfa, onions, arugula, clover are like the opening band. they do two things: they prep the soil by helping nitrogen fix in the soil composition. that is hyping the crowd up for the main performer. but in doing so they also feed the crowd! (arugula, onions go to the human crowd, alfalfa and clover go to the chickens and livestock). once the headlining crop is planted, they are forgotten, but they dont care. they just do what they do. that teaches me (us?) that we don’t need to be the headliner. we can be the backing band, the understory, and still be 100 percent crucial to the process!

A reminder that Eden is what at least two dozen visionaries throughout history attempted to recreate through their words and their dreams (from Enmetena the first emancipator in ancient Sumer to the writer of the J and E strands in Exodus to Buddha to Confucius to Socrates to Jesus to Ulpian to Mohammed to Langton to Deganawida to Nanak to Wollstonecraft to Jefferson to Adams to Bahá’u’lláh to Parker to King, etc.). But it is music that is the most potent force we have for awakening such dreams. Nothing else comes close. Thank you!

Every day, I do my best to plant the seeds of joy and confidence in the young singers I coach. For me, singers and musicians are superheroes who show the world the magic of harmonic collaboration. They need all the support they can get – attention, light and love.
