Beginnings Here Welcoming 2013 with Open Arms! Here we come!
i need this. i am going to learn how to sing. not because i don’t know how, because we can all sing….but because i want to have a voice that is able to stand in itself and whisper or belt and be in command of that.
what a great lesson tonight as a first step to controlling the sounds out of my mouth. we learn to control the words. now i can learn to control and master the sounds.
beautiful instrument that we are built with – and so few of us now use it as we put our ear buds in and sing in our heads.
recorded music has killed this off for humankind.
i recently heard that people used to sing while they worked. entire crafts had songs that sang while they worked. this built trust with our co-workers and a relationship of the act of singing together. oh, how we have lost this. is this what i long for? is that the primal scream i am hearing inside me as i want to sing?
can’t figure out where this need came from….but one day it was here and it now must be contended with.
