Part 2 of my songwriting experience at this year's Taproot Teacher Training, hosted by Jean Miller and Barbara Dewey.
Saturday morning, August, 6, I sat under a tree as I witnessed God Manifested beauty.
In front of me was
a beautiful lake,
with a vacant canoe,
beside me was rolling grassy hills,
and above me where blue skies with white puffy clouds.
I took in the sounds all around me, the buzzes and hums of summertime.
The warm wind gently blowing in my hair.
I sat with my guitar and just played with no singing, taking in this feeling.
Planting this feeling in the song.
Finally, when the time was right, I tried out our lyrics from yesterday.
"A dream is just a simple thing,
It starts as a seed.
A wish deep within your heart,
That longs to be freed.
Planted deep, and still asleep,
Don't hold it in, let it out."
Then, new lyrics for verse 2 came to me as I rested in this...
How many times have you had your dream set free? Here is one of my dreams being set free and I want to share it with you.
A Dream Set Free is a beautiful new song written by me and my friends at the 16th annual Taproot Teacher Training, hosted by Jean Miller, of Art of Homeschooling and Barbara Dewey of Waldorf Without Walls.
Over 30 amazing friends came together for this training and retreat from all over the USA to Camp Asbury in Ohio. These incredible parents and teachers are changing the world on breath of love at a time.
It was an inward and outward, playful and collaborative project that was so amazing!
Guess who was in this session?
What a great start to our session, having her with us.
