“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life”
– Mary Oliver

A child in a wasteland of confetti. An untethered and wild dance into an uncertain future.

The music spoke to me of something vulnerable and powerful, delicate and vast, visceral and ethereal.

It brought me to this figure of a child and to children, the vanguard of our planet’s future. How will they bear the burden we have placed on them? They carry all of our hopes and all of our fears.

We will them on, with love, talking courage into their hearts and asking for forgiveness.
