I want to dedicate this post to mothers, to those who are widowed, divorced, or without a partner. If you are separated from your children because of immigration or Coronavirus isolation. I spoke with a mother yesterday who told me that she thought she was failing because she cries. So do I. We all cry. So I want to sing for you a traditional lullaby lament from Southern Italy. There were many nights spent as a single Mom that I sang my boys to sleep with this song. I haven’t done this in a long time. I am not sure if the words are correctly pronounced or even what their meaning is anymore. It’s a gift…rest.
