    This was my bedtime lulluby tonight, Kristine. Thank you. And yes, the dress(es).

  6. Any chance to listen to Mahalia Jackson is a good thing.

    Thanks for this post, Kristine.

  7. I know this is a bit mainstream, but it is powerful and left me in tears. We too need to gather round those who mourn, lay our hands on them, and lift them up. Great images.

  8. The Dress. Paul Robeson. Mahalia. So. Much. Greatness. Here. Thank. You.

  9. Paul Robeson was awesome.

    Messed up politically, but hey…nobody is perfect.
