It’s not always about the singing

 

Sometimes the best things in our lives are the ones we don’t ever expect. I’ve written about the choir I’m in a few times before when I was fairly new to it, in some ways I still am, still learning the songs they’d done before, still figuring out why I seem to be one of the tallest when we stand to perform when actually I’m not that tall but I’ve been there a bit longer now.

Back when I wrote before it was all very new and exciting, my enthusiasm comes across in those earlier posts. Now I’ve been there a bit longer I guess I have a different view on those two hours once a week I spend practicing with the rest of the choir, in just the last few months I’ve grown as a person and learnt a hell of alot about myself and about what I want.

I haven’t deactivated my profile (which I did the last time I took a break) but I have logged off and seriously cut back the time I am logged on. The first time I properly went on was yesterday to update my profile picture because I’d decided I seriously needed an up to date one. This isn’t the first time I’ve taken a sort of break and I’m not sure how long it will last but we shall see. This is what I’ve learnt in the time I’ve been away so far.
