At Portals we like to talk about, think about, wonder about the important qualities and questions in life. At this time, during the magic of a seasonal transition into a new year and the coming together of families and friends to celebrate life, we offer this gift of song from our friend and artist Aud Wilken. We hope you enjoy!
This is our second year with the generous offering of song from Aud. Listen here to Life Speaking, and hear her discussion of music and the creative process.
Companionship - a song
Where's a good place to fall
if you feel a fall coming?
Where should you be
whom should you call
and what could you summon?
What kind of friends and what kind of space?
if you can’t explain it, will they read your face?
Sometimes just for a moment,
we might lose our strength and our hope,
And need for someone or something else to help us cope.
For sure don’t make a meal of it at all,
But everyone needs a safe place to fall.
Where’s a good place to rise
if you feel something growing?
Which seeds in you are the ones,
that truly are showing?
What kind of thoughts
and what kind of common or uncommon ground,
what kind of conversation and exchange
can be found?
Sometimes in just the right moment
we might step into unknown tracks,
And need for someone or something else
to not hold us back.
Looking at each other
with fresh eyes and without fear,
can allow something new to safely appear,
can allow something new to safely appear.
