What role does music play in your life?
In school, music was all I thought about. As I grew older, music became rather miniscule in my life. Church, Marriage, Family, Home-making, and Career kicked in and took over my life.
I have always loved to sing. I have always been part of our church choir. I sang in the chorus through middle and high school. Loved every minute of it. I would sing anything, even theme songs to television shows. Music took a backseat in my life and about the only time I had to listen to music was in the car or on an elevator.In the car, I’d roll the windows down, turn the radio up and sing my fool head off. I was a wonderful feeling. I continue to do so today, but it is not as pleasant as it used to be.
Since the craniotomy in 2009, my vocal cords have twitched. this makes it difficult to even talk some days. Barry and I found a church home last April and I have begun to sing when the congregation does. My vocal cords are actually letting me sing at times. Although, I’m sure every cat within range is screeching with me, but I give it my all. It feels wonderful to have a small piece of something back I thought I had lost.
I’m not ready to solo, but who knows……..
