On Your Mark, Get Set, GO!!!

It begins today. A 6 week vocal sabbatical. That means no talking for all that time. No sound production. No humming. Not even clearing the throat (that will be impossible.) But hopefully the rest will be doable.

I damaged my vocal cords a couple years back and now it's time to do something about it. My husband, a gracious and loving man, is fully supportive, knowing that my ability to sing and talk brings me great joy. He realizes it is important to me -- so he's willing to put up with this attempt to regain vocal strength. Isn't he a sweetie? Because you do realize, don't you, that this will be hard on the household. Mama is not talking, not giving commands, not discussing things readily. Oh, I will carry a small notebook. We will set up a whiteboard in a common room. And I am even considering the purchase of a small computer (I do not have one of my own presently). All of these things should keep communication happening. Fun, fun...

Last night the church in Moira prayed for me. They asked for grace, healing, and a better voice than ever (watch out, Renee Fleming). But someone also asked that during this time of silence I would hear things I've never heard before. I like that. I hope for that. I'll take an answer to that prayer, thank you very much!

Meanwhile, my keyboard may be more active than usual. I will be writing school assignments, sending info to students for the upcoming musical production of Seussical, tweaking a booklet I've written for publication, and blogging.

We shall see how this goes.
