It has been lovely to read these posts and Listen to the music
This song touched my heart this morning.
Sometimes you need help from others in Life
to feel a sense of security and wellness.
Now you are talking about these school project songs:
Examples from the Far North Queensland tropics & New South Wales:
It is in your heart and mind anyways :hug3:
Similar to Irish wake – no?
Sounds like a good protocol to follow.

Here is a talk titled vulnerability 20 min.
Please, share your stories and knowledge with us.
