In the heart of winter I continue to be grateful to be alive, to have a warm place to sleep, food to eat, and a family and community to be a part of. I have been involved with the Sing For Joy community for only a couple of years, but feel as though we have been together for longer. This non-audition choir, and singing community shares my belief that music (and singing) are our birthright as human beings – that you do not have to be musically ‘perfect’ in order to make beautiful sounds – and that doing so together, can improve our health + quality of life. I wonder if you find, as I do, that tapping into creativity, beauty or fun can really help to shift the winter ‘blahs’. For me, that’s knitting, drawing, writing songs, singing, or listening to music…..what is it for you? It’s been really cold – and I have enjoyed the way that singing together in a group can actually make me feel warmer (from the inside, out). On Feb.17, I will be sharing a few songs from Waves of Change community wellness recording project for adults + kids (+ stress-busting breathing exercises) as a guest at the Sing For Joy Choir in the Junction led by Stephanie Drouin (her delightful voice also appears on a few studio recordings of the Waves of Change songs!). You + family are invited to come warm up with us!
