No. 301: Voice Is...



When We follow Voice
Long enough
Deeply enough
Broadly enough
Completely enough

We See It
Is
A Destination
AND
A Journey.

It's never taken alone
It's never exclusive

It's Mysterious
and yet
Simple
All at Once.

THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.

No. 300: Can you wake up...?


Can you wake up
WANTING
to sing?

When We Know
We Are Singers

We See
that singing can be like breathing...

And wanting to do it
a gentle,
simple, yet dramatic choice
to open Our senses:

Does the HeArt keep beating?
Do the Lungs keep breathing?
Do our Bodies keep singing?

Consider Who or What Is behind
What Keeps US Alive,
What Keeps US in Love,

and We will know
what it means
to WAKE UP
singing.

No. 298: It's an ANIMAL...!




You are in relationship with your voice.
Right NOW.

What is the quality of that relationship?

For instance:
Do you let your voice love you?
Do you let yourself love your voice?

Do you think this all is crazy?

Then you have not yet experienced a relationship with Voice:

It is sweet, like a kitty cat in your lap.
It is tempestuous, like an opinionated steed.
It is as free and as powerful as any roaming wild animal.

It is asking for your respect--for your attention,

for your PRESENCE.

When will you begin

to listen, to see, to BE what It needs YOU to be...?


THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.

No. 297: Guest of Honor



Is Voice a Guest of Honor in your life?

If we could grasp
each Moment
ALL
of what Voice IS,

We would fling wide every door,
pull out all the stops,
and throw the biggest Par-TAY
in honor
of this Beautiful Guest

(which in fact *shhhhh* is the Beauty of Who We Are--
but don't tell--
or the Par-TAY won't be a surprise!)


THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.
