No. 189: What is Opera Organically? Acknowledging "The Observer"

There is an Observer of all Singers
when we are brave enough
will tell us Who We Really Are.

It sees completion,
ecstasy, warmth, honesty, beauty,
perfection, in each moment,
and at every phase of discovery.

When we learn to sing
in the embrace of this Observer
suddenly we are safe enough
to be in awe of the universality of Voice.

Then, what was once a torturous struggle
toward "technical proficiency"
becomes a deep, joyful dive
into the Heart of what it means to be alive.

THIS is Opera Organically.
