Although I mostly lurk on Mudcat these days, I do check in on all you lovely people. I send warm thoughts and share your joys and sorrows. And now I want to share my joys with you.
After the first eight months of 2016 being less than wonderful, September made up for it. A house concert where I was pulled aside during the break by one of the singers and told I have a lovely voice and should sing more When I told her I panic and lose the words, she asked if I would let her help me with that. Having my given-up-for-adoption younger sister make contact with me after I'd given up all hope of ever hearing from her. Going to The Getaway and seeing old friends and making new ones. Deciding that going to Sally Rogers' Music Theory for Vocalists workshop at The Getaway might be a good idea and feeling like I needed the remedial class, but enjoying it anyway and having Sally drag me into the center to listen when she realized I was feeling lost so I wouldn't feel excluded. Having Sally pull me aside after her mini concert and telling me the same thing that Kat told me earlier in the month. Road trip to Connecticut with my mom to pick up my new dog last Thursday. Getting to know Beau (the new dog).
My mom took this photo of Beau's and my first meeting
