We all need, if not good news, then at least some relief. Though cannot heal our wounds, art, as Goethe noted, has the power to assuage them.
Please enjoy this beautiful Scottish folk song, sung by The Corries along with their audience.
Brothers, love is a teacher, but a hard one to obtain: learning to love is hard and we pay dearly for it. It takes hard work and a long apprenticeship, for it is not just for a moment that we must learn to love, but forever. (Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov)
