"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

Sing Me a Song, Anyone Will Do

The best thing about my job is the acoustics in the kitchen. I can actually hear myself sing, so you bet I spend extra time in there at night just singing away. This place holds second to the time I worked at night by myself for a Peace Group. The group was located in an old convent for nuns and the acoustics were Devine! Boi, did I sing in that place alot...loud, and in tune! Don’t get me wrong, you won’t see me on American Idol any time soon. Um, mostly cause I’m too cool, yeah that’s it. I do like to sing though, and when I can hear myself even better. I wail away! Sometimes other people join me too. I love it when other people join in, no matter how anyone sounds.

Of course, I do have actual singer/songwriter friends and I am too intimidated to sing with them when I go over to their house. I can't find a tune to save me. But I won’t give up, one of these days my voice won’t freeze and I will show them my pipes. They don’t care how well I sing, just as long as I do it...

But until then, I’m going to get back to the kitchen and sing. See ya.

Thank you for your comment on my blog and for leaving a way for me to find you here. I've only had time to read through your most recent entries, but I love your way with words. And keep singing...isn't it great that freedom and exuberance that comes from a singing spirit?
I'm very glad to have met you, and will visit again soon.
