So wow. I am officially back! It was so great being away from real life that I now know what my fantasy world would look like: a beach. With my family. What a great time it was.
Then the rude, but still great awakening that oh yeah, I have to sing Handel in church Sunday morning. It was not as horrifying as it could have been, as I went a week without practicing. There was honestly only one ten minute interval during which I could warm-up in the house at the beach when I was alone! Tomorrow night the rehearsing starts in earnest for the high holidays, and vacation is definitely over. Here we go!
But we need breaks. They are so good.
Now I am back at work, and facing numerous challenges in a somewhat different role. But I know that it will be for the best, as I can feel myself stretching.
I miss my family, but they are only a phone call away. I think fall is coming, guys! And you know what that means! Singing!!
