Another World

The text is adapted from a quote by Arundhati Roy, one of my heroines. It was printed on a postcard I was given at Mary Busby's lovely Sagrada Sacred Arts, an indie gift and bookstore in Berkeley, CA. Many times a tune will leap up at me while I'm praying on a person or situation, and this tune is one of those. Click on it to enlarge.

Here's the complete quote from Arundhati Roy's Wiki page, with the hint that it comes from a speech:

"Another world is not only possible, she's on the way and, on a quiet day, if you listen very carefully you can hear her breathe." - Arundhati Roy

If you like this melody, sing it when you can't afford to be in doubt. Might help. If you want to sing it with others, make stuff up, or, there will be some parts soon here: Square Market site, and look for Another World under Sheet Music. Enjoy.


  1. This is beautiful, Anna. I'm really stressed about writing papers for school, and this tune helps me pray for peace and strength. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks so much, Charles! I'll keep posting tunes for a bit. Please share them!
