No. 258: At It's Deepest

At It's Deepest
Singing is Screaming
in "Yes":

It's a second chance
at birth
where we get to embrace
rather than protest
the feelings of Life
and in
Our skins.

It's shaped laughter;
It's molded sobs;
It's longing and desire, fullness and emptiness--

Perhaps this is why Singing
is so glorified.

Perhaps this is why so many want to do It.

Who would not want this transmutation into Love...?

And Who, in their right HeArt, 
would ever dream 
of denying It?

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

This post is dedicated to my Friend Tammy McCammon.

No. 257: Find the Infinity.

Find the Infinity
in (Y)our Heart
and you will find
the Infinity
in (Y)our Voice.

Bathe in the Love
Which is
Who We Are...

...and BE...just...Be...

THIS is life--this is singing--at it's best.

THIS is Opera Organically.

No. 257: If you knew...

If you knew 
that singing could do for you
what dreaming,
can do--

that is:


Would you do It?

...and if someone told you you couldn't do it, but yet, you stand here before me, ALIVE, would you QUESTION what you have been told?

Ahhh...I DO HOPE the answers for you are "YES".

To sing is one of Life's great gifts--It Is, I believe, a basic human right, to sing.

Do not let a lie that has parasitically silenced us keep you from singing:
one of Life's greatest experiences, when done 
with ALL the Heart and Mind.

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

THIS is Opera Organically.

No. 255: The Missing Curriculum

I admit to the world
I just 
at the fact
that we attempt
to teach singers
most often
without the slightest mention
of Voice's inherent ability
to teach US.

What are we thinking...?

Voice, I am Yours. 
Use me.
Open me.
Beat my HeArt with the drum of Your Reality.

THIS is the Greatest Curriculum of All:
the Music we keep on living
and living


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

No. 254: DON'T SING.


*that's right, you heard it*

Voice's Self-Professed Advocate

Is telling YOU to keep quiet.


Because so far:

1) The World has very little clue

How precious YOUR Voice IS.

2) The World has very few tools

To keep your Voice safe.

3) The World very rarely sees 

The exquisite, stunning BEAUTY

Of a Voice in birthing.

*Better to stay quiet until You know of an absolutely caring World 
Where Voice Is All There Is
So when people tell you there is a mark to miss
you can smile kindly and secretly
and keep following your path 
to bliss*

THIS New World is Life.  
THIS New World is Love.  
THIS New World is Opera Organically.
