Thank you, Deb & Cat

Standard
Dear Deb & Cat,
We have never met…

There is a possibility that we may have passed in the street without knowing that we had somehow connected through your artistic endeavour. Yes, it is your mural that appeared overnight along a path that runs under a bridge, leading to a busy street. The one with the brilliant sun shining over a tree, three tulips, a flowering shrub.

I was in a hurry to complete a scheduled task. Until…

The spreading branches, with fresh leaves called to me. There was an enveloping warmth, a feeling of renewal, the arrival of spring.

You reminded me that we live in a beautiful world of light and colour. Pablo Picasso once said, “Art washes away from the souls the dust of everyday life.” Your mural exemplifies this idea.

Looking back, I have no recollection of the “urgent” task. Instead, I have a memory (and photos) of the moment I spent with you via your art.

Wherever you are, whatever you do, I know that you will accomplish great things.

With gratitude,

LadyBudd

Singing – The Tools

Standard

Wreath

These are the tools of a singer:

Lungs – source of air supply

Larynx – acts as a reed or vibrator against the chest

Chest – functions as the amplifier, like a tube in a wind instrument

Tongue, Palate, Teeth, and Lips – articulates and imposes consonants and vowels on the amplified sound.

Vocal Cords – the means to alter the pitch.

Diaphragm and an assortment of Muscles (that have long names) – used to inhale and exhale

The Singing Tools are also used by a painter…

“To draw you must close your eyes and sing.”

Pablo Picasso
