I have a concert tonight and tomorrow night — a new music, performance art kind of a thing. One of my colleagues is perhaps not the most supportive in the world (very different working styles) but in the main, this has been a really rewarding endeavor. The music is hard, and having learned and memorized it gives me a feeling of accomplishment and steadiness. The staging and costumes are really cool and creative, and I’m glad to be part of it. And the paycheck ain’t bad either. More than I’ve ever been paid for this kind of work.
I’ve also decided to get a church job, to bring in a little extra money, and perhaps to make some contacts for future singing work.
It feels good to be singing again, even just a little.
