Take the Time To Sing
“With your head up, with your eyes closed. Not because you love the song, but you love to sing” – Aaron Marsh
I realize I will forever be tied to music.
Many of my past family ancestors were artists, many of my relatives today are artists, painters, writers. Creators of the “arts”.
My passion has always been to sing. From elementary school choir to high school musicals. In rock bands that were such great fun in school to working to make it a profession by touring around with a bus ( not successfully by the way). Just jamming in garages or making sounds in basements made for revitalizing enjoyment. Even today I get to sing at church from time to time with the band ( yup, not a “choir” but a great bunch of musicians).
When I get in the car I put on music, when I am relaxing I put on the playlists, when I am working on things I put on music rotations. Parties? Without music? No way.
Concerts are an event, and more often the better. My kids taught me how to experience the music today. I have tens of thousands of songs on my hard drive, own one thousand vinyl records I can’t seem to let go of (even though I don’t have my turntable connected). Songs from every genre, rock music from the beginning, eclectic, progressive, jazz, soul, R&B, even disco ( but not too much :))
So like so many others I around me – I sing. Never going to win any trophies or competitions. But I love to sing.
What about you…? Like to sing? So SING. Not because you love the song- but you love to sing.
