For the past year, the inconceivably destructive return of war to Europe has brought horror and shock to the people of Ukraine. My heart is with the Ukrainian people, those who are bravely resisting the Russian invasion, those who are being forced to flee the fighting in the face of terrible conditions and those who are, or who cry for, the far too many victims. The loss is unfathomable.
This past week I have been texting with someone in Kharkiv, Ukraine. After a grueling year in a frontline city, after losing her home and her family, with some destiny at play and of course a bit of technological assistance we happened upon each other’s contact info and communicating with someone who has been experiencing a loss of such a distinct magnitude made me question loss. I noticed a shift in me, like the aperture of my camera lens rotated. I was at the beach the other day thinking about this and I could hear the in the deep tones of the tides, and within me, a submarine subconscious voice, clarity, focus.
the love is the home
the voice of nature, music
brings it all back to the love,
I’ve been researching, focusing on helping Ukrainian refugees find a home to build their lives back up. Furthermore, exploring and appreciating the diverse landscape of Ukrainian music I have found it to be joyful and fierce, energy packed and remarkable.
the love is the home,
trusting in the currents, the music of nature
swimming in the love, and connecting with others.
I’ve created a playlist here for you to explore the sounds of this vibrant culture and to support Ukrainian artists and the Ukrainian people.
