about

Inspired by a documentary with David Suzuki talking about how we share the same atoms of Argon in our breath that the dinosaurs breathed in. We share it with those around us...

"Your next breath will contain more than 400,000 of the argon atoms that Ghandi breathed in his long life. Argon atoms are here from the conversations at the Last Supper, from the arguments of diplomats at Yalta, and from the recitations of the classic poets; and also from the exhalations of the dinosaurs, the whales and the sabre-toothed tigers.

Air is a matrix that joins all life together, past and future as well as present. We inhale our ancestors and exhale into the lungs of our children. Furthermore, by befouling the air - and the water, and the earth - we very literally befoul ourselves." David Suzuki

We are connected by breath. We are bound to each other and all of our actions affect others and birth our future.

lyrics

Lyrics:

One thing that I know for sure
We are all in this together
Like a drop in the ocean, or a strand in the web
Our lives are connected forever

From womb to tomb we are connected by breath
We are bound to each other
From womb to tomb we are connected by breath
We are wrapped up in love

One act of kindness goes far beyond
The place where it touches
Like invisible threads of community
A ripple moving outwards

What if together we were to choose,
The shape of things to come
And in all that we say and it all that we do
We remember we are one

We’d be building a bridge into our future
We’d be building a doorway to our heart
