Creating connections through the arts and across cultures

Listen to “Memento-Mori: Life and Death, Moment by Moment”

Here's the Audio-Link for my Septemeber 2nd sermon at the First Unitarian Church of Alton, Illinois. Click here for a link to listen to "Memento-Mori: Life and Death, Moment by Moment" (just the sermon) or the full service.

Neither my father nor I were amplified for our violin-playing, but you can hear it if you listen closely.

This sermon includes poetry from "Sightlines: A Poet's Diary":
--Quail Visitation
--King's Sake
--Heartbeat
--Just Like You and Me (rainbow excerpt)
--Double Rainbow Wisdom
--Ashes Washed Clean

Khleber Van Zandt wrote us a lovely thank you note that my father declared a "keeper":

Your presentation on Sept. 2 was so moving and most appropriate. Many people told me how inspired they were by your words, and the presence of your father was an added blessing. Thank you so much for sharing your art, your experience, and your wisdom from your heart.

  1. Dear Janet,
    Thank you for the gift of Memento-Mori for I will treasure it and come back to it in the months to come. Your "performance voice" is so rich and vibrant that I could feel you were in the room with me, reading only to me. Thank you.
