twice a year, for a few years now, i sing in public. these few hours have become highlights in time.
i am merely one of 100 singers. and each time, i only completely know all the music just in the nick of time for the performance.
but when i sing for the audience, i am completely "on." it's not that i don't make mistakes, because i do, but i'm giving it all i've got. every ounce of attention and every molecule of energy focused on our maestro, the music, my voice, and the sounds encircling me. i get a little carried away by the sheer force of the sound, the power of the situation. i sing as if my one voice really mattered. i sing my heart out.
