Gratitude Spiral: Day 330

Today, I’m grateful for a second parking lot gathering with my chorus-mates.

We haven’t been physically meeting together since February due to Covid-19. Every week we meet online, but it’s just not the same. It was fun last weekend to see some of them in person and to sing together, albeit distanced from each other and hard to hear the harmonies. It’s given me motivation to sing more at home, to get my voice back in shape for the next in-person songfest.

Gratitude Spiral: Day 291

Today, I’m grateful for yesterday’s parking lot get-together with friends.

I hadn’t seen my chorus-mates face to face in more than six months. We meet online every week, but it’s just not the same. One of our members secured permission for us to use a local church’s parking lot and we gathered, safely, socially distant from each other, for some much needed in-person socializing. What fun!

Gratitude Spiral: Day 267

Today, I’m grateful for singing Christmas songs in August.

This time of social-distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic has left a lot of choirs and choruses with nothing much to do. Once a week, the chorus I belong to meets online, but we can’t easily sing together. One of the local community television studios is going to help us record a virtual Christmas performance, so we can still bring our music to audiences for the holiday. Starting this week, I get to pull out my Christmas music and brush away the cobwebs, so I’ll be ready when it’s time to record my part. Looking forward to it. 🙂

Gratitude Spiral: Day 142

Today, I’m grateful for the baritone section of my barbershop chorus.

Last night, I got to see them all via a Zoom video chat. It’s strange to get together without singing together, but it lifted my spirits to touch base with them anyway.
