The Divine Feminine was up front and center...and all throughout the very crowded sanctuary for the first Sunday in August. Linda has many musical friends, including her Sahara Peace Choir members, as well as other choir members throughout Asheville, NC.
She leads the choir at our little church, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Swannanoa Valley, which performs once a month. Whenever our minister, Rev. Michael Carter, isn't in the pulpit, we have guests and this Sunday we had Linda's poetry and music!

What a gentle way to learn, and then celebrate. We sang together "The Earth is our Mother, We must Take Care of Her." and I was the drummer.
|I ran the sound system as well as played a Native drum|
|Teresa Ballinger chose beautiful words to begin our program|
|Kim Hughes, an operatic trained soprano, delighted us with Linda's songs|
Quote for today:
Whate’er your sadness, large or small,
she pounds the shores ever again,
in rhythms as old as Earth,
waxing, waning, high tide, low tide,
sister of the moons, pulling as she pulls on our blood,
the other salt sea we carry within.
