Things my mind does when I'm not paying attention:  
"Gia il sole dal Gange
and a happy New Year!"

Thus do I unveil my Sekrit Projekt: I've been taking voice lessons this semester. I can *sing* again, by ghods. Not well, but much better than I could 10 weeks ago. It feels so good.

Posted to Facebook and with minor changes to LJ.

Good for you!

I've been thinking about sitting down with my guitar and Russ to run the video on the pocket-cam, and recording some of the old SCA songs from 20 years ago that I'm not sure anyone but me remembers any more. But I know my voice has lost a lot of its oomph since the last time I was singing regularly, so I'm waffling.

If you were looking for votes, that sounds like it would be a good addition to the archives, on YouTube if nothing else.

I agree with Rick -- even if your voice isn't perfect, it's better than losing the songs.

That is marvelous.

I am envious.

Maybe someday ... :)

If you're near a college or university, you could check with their music department -- I got my lessons because a friend was taking Music Pedagogy and had to have two students.

Well done!

I had a couple of singing lessons a number of years ago. I came across the recordings a little while back and moved them to my iPod. I have been practicing the things we covered in one voice lesson for, well, a while now, and I think I am getting better. It's a good feeling.

Squrrl: We sing for the DirtyYardBirds.
Houdini: At night, to let them know we are watching out for Coyotoe and Owl.
Squrrl: So that Coyote and Owl know we are here.

Singing is good for you.

Good to hear from you -- yes, singing makes me feel good.

I'm glad you're there to protect the DirtyYardBirds from Owl and Coyote.
