Amy Ray and Emily Saliers — the Indigo Girls — on finding God in church and in smoky bars. And on music as a continuum of human existence.

Remembering these words from Bobby McFerrin today as we contemplate our work at On Being.

As the daughter of Johnny Cash, singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash describes her life as "circumscribed by music." But, it's through her love of language and quantum mechanics that she's finding new sources of creativity and mathematical ways to think about the divine. The mother of five shares her perspectives on being present, Twitter as a "boot camp for songwriters," and how she wrestles with love and grief through her music.

You can become submerged in beauty within moments, this classical flashmob is a perfect reminder.

Enjoy one of our Tuesday evening melodies as you pay witness to a magical duet with Esperanza Spalding and Bobby McFerrin.
