We’re like an eighty-piece ensemble orchestra
warming up our practiced skills and instruments
for the conductor
there are lots of random sounds coming out from the orchestra pit. The tuning up sounds like noise.
It’s time to pause.
Some feel it more than others at first.
We can all sense the light tapping from an offstage podium . . . a tapping that is calling us to pay attention . . .
It’s about time to come together
To join the sounds of our individual instruments and make the music together
That we cannot make by ourselves
And that wouldn’t sound the same without each of us.
