No. 241: The Greatest Challenge

The greatest challenge
is to understand 
that we singers 
on a most important level
are always and on(e)ly
Seekers of Voice.

The scope of what we do and are
is so much larger 
than what shallow culture tries to sell us
that when we sense It
all we want is to Live the Path.

Yes, this is singing's greatest challenge:
that in "realizing" Voice
we find OurSelves 
in the infinity of the Human HeArt
where an individual voice
ignited fully
can only sing as the clearest reflection
of what it means to be One Voice.

THIS is the deepest meaning of singing.  It is a meaning which defines US--we do not define It.  
To try is to silence the very Music Which We Already Are.
This is why it is the Greatest Challenge.

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