Improvising Peace

Peace is often a matter of slow steps. It starts with a longing and then small steps get taken, hopefully on both sides. It can be uneven. One side may have to travel a bit farther than the other to further the cause.

But once things are moving, there’s room for joy. It can get touchy. We have to listen to each other. If we make sure the chord structure is solid, if we play the tune of Peace well, then there is room for wild, explosive, and joyous improvisation.

Peace. It’s a plain and simple thing and a wild and wonderful thing — but only if we do our work!
