I had something I wanted to post about, but got sidetracked before I was able to make a note about it, and now… well, it’s gone. It was a pretty nifty subject too. I think. I need to keep a notebook with me. *sigh*
The party I put together for our larger group Saturday night was such a success. We had so much fun together! A little adult beverage, good (ok, mediocre but so what) food, lots of singing and great music – what a blast! I’ve found my calling for when I finally
escape from finish my extended term on the board of directors. I see more social occasions in our future, and a tighter, happier group as a result.
Sunday Main Street sang for the Palm Sunday services at the church where we rehearse. Those of you who know me well know I’m not religious at all, so this was a stretch for me. Truth be told, I did it for my friends more than anything else. It was important to them, so it was important to me. No secret that I’d do anything for them. I’m not looking for a pat on the back for that, don’t get me wrong! I just surprised myself a little
by not bursting into flames by enjoying myself. I like to get out of my comfort zone and this certainly qualified! Mostly I enjoyed the company, but you know I also love singing too, and it was fine once I decided to just enjoy the music itself. The two pieces we did were very different from our usual contemporary stuff, but very pretty in their own right. We were honoured to open and close the services as their special guests.
I know a lot of you are religious, and I’ve always taken pains not to let my views ring out too much out of respect for that. I appreciate and defend your right to your beliefs, and I know you afford me the same consideration, right? Right. We’re all good people, and it isn’t an issue. This was just a big thing for me, and I thought I’d share it with you, open book style! :)
