No. 289: Be Superbly Aware.

There is A Voice
Which whispers
(And sometimes screams)
"Let Me Be Me."

As Singers
This Voice
Is Our Greatest Friend.

Follow Only the Path--
Only in the Space
Where a Golden Thread Leads
To and From Who We Are.

Have you tried to dance on this Thread? It is the Ultimate Adventure.

This does not mean
Staying completely comfortable--
At times allowing Voice to flow feels like surgery,
re-birth, absolute aloneness
or ultimate anxiety.

Be afraid (for FEAR is sometimes Voice's only way to reach Us where we're at)
But know

Is not All Voice--(Listen Deeply and This Will Be Clear).

It DOES mean redefining
Stretching and expanding
Our ideas of What it Means
To Be
and To Become
Singers...Human Beings...Light...Love...Awareness...

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

Dedicated, as always, to Opera Organically Singers, 
Who, in their bravery 
and Being-ness 
stun me often into tears.
