2016-05-25. We worked with Dr.Shamsutdinova for several years during her extraordinary project on collecting lullabies throughout the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Shamsutdinova’s work on lullabies is truly important. Each Lullaby collected is a unique expression of an individual’s connection to tradition and heritage in its most elemental form. The Lullaby Project explores, collects, and preserves those expressions, then re-presents those beautiful songs to a greater audience, thereby underscoring the common valu
2016-05-12. Paul Costello (1964): “The sweet sleep comes in a soft blue, in a soft blue, envelopes me, envelopes me, surrounds me. Sleep is surrender – letting go and allowing love to compass.”
2016-05-12. Abel Rocha Gonzales Pachero (1960).: “The Sleep comes to me in a light blue color. I start to have incongruent thoughts, relaxation, mixing thoughts in a strange way, deep breathing. If I cannot sleep I take a cold shower.”
2016-05-12. Beth Amsbary (1959): “Sleep comes to me in a deep blue-green color. Sometimes it steals me from wakefulness, sometimes it is nesting in the arms of God and relaxing into them. Busy brain is troubled sleep.”
2016-05-12. Emily Teachout (1968): “If you cannot fall asleep look at the inside of eyelids, the swirling colors. White noise, better yet is old-time music drifting through trees.”
2016-05-11. Susanne Ohrvic (1962). "Sleep comes to me in a purple color. Soft, quietly. Sleep is sweet, soft, rythmic, stow breathing dreams processing the day. If I cannot fall asleep I exhaust myself with a boring book."
2016-05-11. Lisa Kathleen Johnson Ponder (1956). "Sleep comes soft, slow, and unnoticed – like a fog spreading. Breath slower, shut my eyes, be calm and still. I hear swish of grasses on a sunny day outside with a little gentle breeze."

2016-03-15. Cynthia FitzGerald (1956): "The Sleep comes to me in a purple color. I think and pray for people I love. Lavender. Some lullabies are to prevent children's curiosity from taking them toward danger. The lullaby can reinforce a parent's protection of the child."
2016-03-09. Margie Hunt (1941): The good deep Sleep comes to me in a black velvet color. Sleep descends and engulfs me very comfortably. It is a page all covered with black. If I have a trouble falling asleep I think of blackness, especially by the outsides of my eyes and breathe of them. If it does not work, I let one thought lead to another, not allowing myself to remain on any one thought.
2016-03-08. Gwendolyn King (1978): “Sleep is floating over fields of flowers and oceans of fish. Sleep is becoming part of the water as it bends around the trees and rocks.” (Masguda's Project)
2016-02-24. Patricia Spaeth: There’s moment when your thoughts get fuzzy and you realize “That’s not logical – good – I’m falling asleep.” (Lullaby Project by Masguda)
2016-02-23. Vicki Nelson (1952): "The Sleep comes to me multi-colored. It slowly lays over me like a blanket. Sleep is a feeling of being safe, wrapped in a cocoon of warmth and peace." (Lullaby Project by Masguda)
2016-02-23. Martha de Carbonel Patterson (1963): "The Sleep comes to me in indigo color, sweet, smooth, velvety slide into warmth. Sleep is soothing, energizing, anticipatory, exiting, healthy, lovely, peaceful, comforting, and necessary.”(The Lullaby Project by Masguda)

2016-02-02. Maria Batayola: "My homeland is warm, gracious, peaceful. The Sleep comes to me like warm water, sinking into warm water in a blue color. In my Tagalog language the Sleep called “Matulog". I love the smell of lilac. It reminds me of the soft winds that come, bring smell of Sampagita."
2016-02-02. Dusty Collings: “Lullabies in the US are for the calming of the adult as much as the child. Many of them have a scary part. Young families often have no one older around to offer support and confidence. This has been a trend even since the 1700s.”
2016-01-29. Dominika De-Klerk: The Sleep comes to me in a rainbow colors. It feels like the air pushing my eyes down and I sleep. I like the smell of strawberries because it feels like I am eating them. I like to taste chocolate because it just tastes good!” Masguda's Lullaby Project participant.
2016-01-28. Jamie Shilling: "Sleep comes slowly breathing, sometimes moving as a song in my mind. It is a heaviness!”
