YAY! Yay? Yay.

Knobby put up screens yesterday and we opened the windows to let the house air out.  So few in-between days to do this . . . so many for us are insufferably hot or intolerably cold.  It’s always nice to feel the breeze blow through on these rare days. It has been a rough time […]

Pur Dicesti

New song for Voice. Pur dicesti, o bocca bella, Quel soave e caro sì, Che fa tutto il mio piacer. Per onor di sua facella Con un bacio Amor t’aprì, Dolce fonte del goder, ah! After working on opera, I am loving this song.  It is fun and easy, and reminds me of a cheery […]

Song to the Moon

There is such beauty to find in this new opera venture of mine. Almost every day . . . something new, something beautiful I want to learn. And I’m so grateful that I’ve been blessed with this coloratura soprano ability. And so grateful my husband urged me to try voice lessons . . . which […]

Of Choirs and Carpets

I am having a devil of a time deciding on carpet. I could bore you to tears . . . so, simply.  I have always lived on a beige carpet.  I have never really had much say in that matter. For Christmas, my big surprise was Knobby telling me we were going to carpet the […]

Meine Lippen, Sie Kussen So Heiss

I’m attempting to learn this today. I was told singing in German would be fun. We’ll see. Ich weiß es selber nicht, warum man gleich von Liebe spricht, wenn man in meiner Nähe ist, in meine Augen schaut und meine Hände küsst. Ich weiß es selber nicht warum man von dem Zauber spricht, dem keiner […]

New Voice Semester

My first voice lesson of the year.  Here’s to new beginnings, hooray. We outlined things I’ve improved since I started, things that need work, some goals. I do so much better in that small little practice cell. It isn’t the space itself . . . the confinement of a painted concrete block in front of […]

Insert EarPlugs

Yes, yes. You want a whole Christmas season update. You want a Minion update. You want so much. Ask and ye shall receive. But first . . . I discovered the disconnect between my “rehearsing” the Ave Maria without music versus with the backing track I was given. I was having SUCH trouble in this […]

Tick Tick Tick, Boom.

I have a Christmas recital coming up very soon. Tick tick tick. I’m supposed to sound like this: Hint: I do not. Three weeks’ worth of guidance (once a week) do not make me feel very stable about having to make this song work in a crowd of people. I worry about this way . […]
