I’m either tensing up too much, or it’s singing-cancer (sorry, that’s the way my mind works). I’m sure it’s something I’m doing because it started when I was in a rush to warm up a few weeks ago and I went straight to the high notes. I pushed too hard and too fast and hurt myself. Ever since, after singing for a while I feel pain in my throat whenever I hit the high notes. So, I’m going to start by seeing a vocal coach.
If anyone has gone through this, I’d love to hear about your experiences. I know I have a lifetime of bad singing habits to un-do.
More #20Acts and #26Acts. Some people do 27 to include Lanza’s mother and some people are even doing 28 to include the shooter because he was a damaged soul as well. Ann Curry who started it all said it was an individual decision. Honestly, I don’t see how one or two more kind acts is a bad thing.
A high school teacher told her students: “Go up to the quiet kid at lunch. Be the loners lab partner. Offer a kind word.”
“Went to ToyRUS and paid off someone’s layaway.” (I just read that someone paid off all the layaways at a Walmart.)
“Just paid the school fees for 25 children with AIDS in Mombasa, Kenya.”
“Gave a red dress and $ for shoes to a sweet 8yo in mem of Charlotte Bacon who wore her new dress&boots on Fri.”
“Got bumped upgraded to business class on my flight to London from US, gave it to a crying woman by herself.”
Christmas tree shopping on Jane Street in New York City. I love the what looks to be a cowboy with the iphone.
