And finally, please forward this link today to anyone you know who teaches preschool, kindergarten, or first grade. It contains a simple curriculum for preparing a classroom full of kids to observe the Minute of Silence on the 21st.

New Music
Fullness of SorrowThe title of our new  track, Fullness of Sorrow, belies our joy at publishing the first track of "Cascades," a forthcoming album with cellist Michael Fitzpatrick. Stay tuned for more developments. 

More Peaceful Music
All of the music we make is peaceful and promoting of peace and harmony. From our We Agree! Curricula to our acoustic albums like Blossoms and Sanctuary, we dedicate all of our work to creating a more peaceful world, one pair of ears at a time. Dr. Michael Irwin of the Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology / Jane & Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior, said this about our music:
"The relaxation response induces a profound state of deep rest, which when practiced and applied to our daily lives, can alter how we respond to physical and emotional stress. The music of Merrill Collins is, in my view, important in facilitating the transition into this state of deep relaxation."
Keep in Touch! 
Let's keep in touch!

Peace to all of us,
Merrill Collins
