folks,

i've been looking into this subject lately to help me cope with things that are going on in my life, but it certainly can apply to your singing.

here's a link...if you're not familiar with this, it's really quite interesting to learn about it.

did you ever get in your car to drive somewhere and the thing is you arrive there, but you have no idea how you got there?

it's sort of like that.

"This is not my beautiful house, this is not my beautiful wife...

Letting the days go by, water rolling underground ...Into the blue again, water rolling underground...."

:D

State of flow at work. Catastrophe after catastrophe, answering 2 and 3 phones at once. Everyone needing their hand held. It's Murphy's Law, on steroids.

I want each of you to look at a pair of scissors and have the knowledge that you know how to use them, right? That will go wrong, each and every day, on each and every task. But I must be insane, by Einstein's standards.

"doing the same thing again and again, expecting different results."

I keep going to work and making plans expecting, this time, for once, it will work out. Never does.

You cannot possibly believe the cluster it can become. It interrupts my flow. So singing is my escape. It cannot, simply will not, be "work." Ever. I have to get away from "work."

Amen! Brother Ron.

Videohere, Thanks for the link. Singing and playing music is my meditation. Unfortunately hours go by in minutes when I am lost in the music. Weather it be the exercises or just singing.

Flow in singing, that is something else. When I am singing, time does not exist. I sing in the now. There is no low or high note to fear. Just this note, right now, right here. (Thank you, Enrico, for the focus.)
