Sit in a garden filled with the sound of songbirds and doves, and whisper a favourite poem or psalm.

Take a small wind instrument- flute, pennywhistle, harmonica- to a busy construction site and play along.

Go to a place where great suffering has been experienced- battle, expulsion, massacre- and make up a song.

Stand beside a lighthouse on a foggy day, and use the foghorn as a drone for a suite of short vocal pieces.

Lay your lead on your lover’s breast, listen to the heartbeat, and hum  ‘Amazing Grace’

Hold the skeleton of a fish against your skull just behind your ear and pluck the ribs, like a harp, while humming the first melody you can remember hearing.

Sing a duet with a baby.
