Eagle's Back

Talking about interconnection.

Words and music by Sarah Pirtle © 2017, Discovery Center Music BMI


What is the place that connects us?

Where is the way that carries us along?

Are we all riding on an eagle’s back

lifted by one great song?

lifted by one great song, lifted by one great song?

Production: Engineered by Loren Feinstein, and percussion by Loren Feinstein.

About This Song

When people first gather together in a workshop, we begin by sensing what it means to be fundamentally connected.  What images reflect for you our basic unity? What is your own touchstone for what this unity feels like? What gives you a kinesthetic sense that you are part of the earth and part of all life on earth?

Here is a poem that helped inspire the song: “I am circling around God, around the ancient tower, and I have been circling for a thousand years, and I still don't know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke, The Book of Hours  

A question to discuss: What is a time that you, your family, or friends felt held and supported by community and felt the strength of the web of life?
