Share Lent Share the Arts

. . . grappling with the voices . . . the anger & futility expressed by students as well as the deep sense of betrayal . . . don't we have a zero tolerance for fighting & bullying at the school . . . complex issues reduced to the personal . . .

moments from the share lent/share the arts continue to burn . . . a young singer stands alone under the white spotlight . . . acoustic guitar gleaming as chords pound out a relentless rhythm underneath the thin white voice singing a self composed song called "Hypocrite" . . .

a young dancer dressed in a flowing black wrap moves in the tradition of Isodore Duncan leaving traces in the air of brokenness yet hope . . .

she dances to the song Blackbird Artist:
THE BEATLES: The White Album Title:

Blackbird Blackbird singing in
The dead of night
Take these broken wings
And learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting
For this moment to arise
Blackbird singing in
The dead of night
Take these sunken eyes
And learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting
For this moment to be free
Blackbird, fly
Blackbird, fly
Into the light of
A dark black night
Blackbird, fly
Blackbird, fly
Into the light of
A dark black night
Blackbird singing in
The dead of night
Take these broken wings
And learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting
For this moment to arise
You were only waiting
For this moment to arise
You were only waiting
For this moment to arise

. . . peace is to listen . . .
