Another brilliant manifestation of Arthur Lubow‘s genius. Is there anything more fundamental or universal than the heart-wrenching beauty of a mother’s song in her baby’s ear? It is every bit as touching to this father as an observer. This work focuses our attention on a mystery to which all of us except the very most unfortunate are initiates. I wonder how much better the world in which we live would be if we all occasionally stripped away the clutter of daily life and put everything in the context of the love that every mother has for every child. This is the issue so touchingly placed before us. I can hardly express how grateful I am for the experience of considering it. This should be required hearing and reading for those who interact with the desperate children approaching our borders whose only possessions are often their parents love and their hope for a decent future.
What a beautiful experience. This lullaby is touching, meaningful and simply exquisite. What a world we could have if this message could truly get out.
