A Sounds True Classic
“Oh quiet animal, sleeping,
What dreams lie within your cells?”
—Julia Cameron, from This Earth
This Earth was recorded high in the Rocky Mountains on four crisp autumn days and starry nights. A mountain lion came to visit. A hawk kept sentinel. Deer gathered just below. It was as if the poems and music caught their attention, tuning in to some deep inner resonance with the spirits of these animals.
Written in a blaze in 21 days of teaching and touring, This Earth is a partnering of verse and harmony intended by its creators to be a hymn of healing. It is passionate, romantic, provocative, and political. It is an anthem, a lullaby, a torch song, and a prayer. Calling us to remember who we are and why we love each other, it invites us to set aside differences of race, religion, country, culture, and gender. Above all, it invites us to celebrate This Earth.
