Hello friends- I’m back! Today marks the first day of an exciting new day for these 3 handsome boys (!!!) and a new season for me here at Melodies of Light!
Last spring I was trying to decide what to do with my website during the summer while I had my kiddos home. A friend mentioned off-hand how much she respects Barbra Streisand because of a story she had heard. Apparently when she had her baby, for the several months following, she didn’t formally rehearse or even practice vocals at home for an event that was scheduled a few months later- she was just present with her baby during that time. She made a conscious decision not to carve out time to keep up her voice while she was healing and bonding with her baby, and decided that she would “sound how she would sound” singing in her performance because this was baby’s time.
I was inspired by that (thanks for sharing, Bridget!), and I want to have that kind of presence in whatever it is that I’m doing. So my summer was for the kids- working and playing and sunshine and peaches and rafting and painting and soccer. Man alive, we had a great time! Now the kids are back to school (already?!) and I’m back to say hello and see what I can add to the collective light in this world. I’m excited for all the adventures this school year will bring!
My plan is to take you with me on my journey of discovery this year as I explore music, creativity, family, and anything else that just makes me happy along the way. I hope you’ll join me!
