It all boils down to what I would most like to do as a musician. Put songs on people's lips instead of just in their ear. I wish I could live long enough to see more people singing again, either solo or in groups. For recreation. For reverence. For learning and laughter. For struggle. For hope, for understanding.
I know I won't live that long, but if this world survives, I believe that modern industrialized people will learn to sing again.
