There is actually also an up- side to being infested with a bug! Apart from the fact that it’s warmer staying in bed, I was spared from emotional torture this week! I decided earlier this year, after all my years of singing, to get a professional vocal coach! Oh boy. . .! What person in their right mind would voluntary sign up for such abuse, and actually pay for it?! :-)
It is one thing to think that you’re sounding great-there’s just a few things I need to work on still. It is totally another to pay someone to show/tell you exactly HOW s*#@ you sound! Pottery or gardening for a creative outlet doesn’t seem like a bad idea at all!
But I won’t let some obsessive, perfectionist of a slave driver, with a voice larger than life, intimidate and defeat me! I’ll use this time in bed constructively to work that confidence and self-esteem! And yeah, yak-yak, I’ll do my breathing exercises! I hear his words ricochet in my head – what better way to practice your stepped-breathing than when you’re lying down? That is, of course dear, once I actually have the luxury of normal lungs again! . . . says the smoker! That’s maybe a bit off – sounds sort of like “my cleanest dirty shirt”:-) Anyway, watch this space -he’s creating a MONSTER!!
Till next time…take care…x
