Wow, guys. I am sort of speechless and so very saddened at what happened at the Boston Marathon earlier today. I just cannot comprehend why people enact such terrible violence on their fellow human beings just to make a point.
I think pagan musician Matt Morris had such a grace-filled response on Twitter, so I wanted to share it:
Cultivate love as a response to violence. #Boston

I've been struggling all afternoon about what song to post for this week's Monday Music Break, in the wake of this tragedy. I listened to a few artists and was drawn to this pretty harp-filled song called "Man to Man" by Lorelei Greenwood. It is from her first solo album, "Allure."
I first found Lorelei's music when, many years ago, I was searching for chants to use in my practice and stumbled across her website. She has written many truly beautiful chants that I still keep in my chant repertoire to this day. She is currently working on two other albums set to release this year, so keep your eyes out for more of her musical awesomeness.
