I have always loved singing. I have sung in church, in school, taken a bit of formal instruction, and actually was the assistant Choir Director at our church for the Cherub group (NOT an easy task...you try to control 40-50 three-five year olds for 45 minutes, WHILE pregnant! NOT for the faint of heart, mind you).
When I was single I used to play my CD's grab a hair brush or other suitable microphone, sing and yes, even dance around my living room. Luckily most of the time I lived on a second floor and kept my blinds closed (most of the time, especially after I began receiving strange notes on my doorstep...story for another day, or never, actually). I would pretend to sing to boyfriends (too bad I never got up the nerve to ACTUALLY do it!), ex-boyfriends (take THAT!) and small nightclubs.
Now, my singing, dedicating and general goofiness is relegated to my van as I drive around town. You should see me on some really good days-dancing, singing at the top of my lungs and just making myself (and lots of passersby) laugh!
I love music. Really good music speaks to you. It can express thoughts that are too deep for tears or words. It can capture a moment to be relived every time you hear the song. It can tell someone how you feel about them, whether as an amazing friend, lover or something else, without you even having to spell it out. Music recalls special memories. Hearing songs from my younger days reminds me of the silly 20 something I was and the silly 30 something I am now.
So yes, if I could be absolutely anything at all I would want to be a singer. What about you? If you could be anything at all what would it be? What is your deepest passion?
