Thanks to A Song For Us for featuring the DARDIS track 'Closed Eyes In The Black Eyes Of Sleep' on their website. You can listen to the track and read a bit about the background of its composition.
A national music project marking this historic time, A Song for Us celebrates our communities and the power of music to bring us together. Conceived and produced by Sound UK, A Song for Us uses music to bear testimony to a time like no other, collecitng music that encapsulates the wide range of experiences and emotions we are living through, creating a musical time capsule of what we all desperately hope will be a once in a generation event.
Thanks to Rick Lupert for including my poem 'Pikuach Nefesh' in Poetry Super Highway's 23rd Annual Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) Poetry Issue.
Pikuach nefesh is the principle in Jewish law that the preservation of human life overrides virtually any other religious rule. The opening line of the poem is an extract from the mourner's Kaddish.
