Not Rocket science...

For some strange reason, this week has been going badly.. at least in my mind... The "commencement" on Sunday afternoon at Branch's, where all of the children's choirs sang seemed to put me into a psychological tailspin. Things at work are actually going well, yet I couldn't get "happy"

And then, I spent the last couple of hours doing what I love to do.. singing.. this was not world class art by any means. I simply went to choir practice and sang with other people who like to sing... I feel better all around. My spirit is renewed. I miss the choir and folks from Branch's fiercely... but somehow, simply making music lifted me up.

My thought for the day is that we all need to find the thing that "renews" our spirit. I think I am a pretty good singer but tonight was not about being good. It was simply about doing/being what I am.. what God made me. Giving up my personal judgement and feelings and just doing what I do seems to have been the key.

Psa. 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

I read your profile.

I study opera, but I don't think I'm very good.

Do you like Caballe? Her album with Freddie is pretty good I think.

My mother named me after a Dvorak character ;-)

Lots of Love,

Nice to hear from a fellow opera lover, who also likes Queen.. Freddie Mercury is amazing. The Caballe album is an interesting experience.. not sure I like it, but I have a lot of respect for it.. bridging rock and classical has yet to really work for me, but I hope that we continue to try. The energy and intensity of such a form would be amazing..

Hope all is well with you down under..
