It’s a new year, a new day, and a chance for a new beginning. 2020 was a year of unexpected change, where constant upheaval and uncertainty became our “new normal.” Do we move forward into 2021 hoping to return to the ‘good old days?’ Does that even make sense anymore? Wasn’t it the ‘good old days’ that led us to where we are now? Perhaps the lesson of 2020 is to remain present with what is.With gratitude,Tracy and Jessica

And, as her elder teacher says, “the whole world is in your grasp.” Utterly spellbinding!
This short doc packs a powerful punch. Sing Me A Lullaby is the remarkable tale of a daughter’s search to find her mother’s parents, from whom she was separated at the age of five. The journey brings multi-generational healing. It’s a story about the incredible sacrifices we are willing to make for love and the ties that still bind, no matter what.
