Do we listen to our own selves -
our thoughts, our bodies, our histories, our potential?
Are we attentive to others -
their needs, their dreams, their pain, their potential?
Do we regard the earth -
as stewards, as consumers, as destroyers?
Do we allow ourselves time -
to drink from the wellspring,
to join in the opus,
to respond with gratitude?
Is our art our heartfelt response to the music we hear?
