  2. Exceptional and, in my experience, unique. Rare to see hope for humanity and the world crystallised into a couple of minutes, but this performance achieves it. We SO need it!

  4. OK, John Gray, you need to stop making me cry! (Not really. Make me cry like this whenever!)

  10. Interesting, John. The few times in my life I have some sort of grief, be it minor be it major, I tend to avoid music like the plague. Reason? Music is evocative. Last thing I need in a moment of reflection.

    1. I think it will do me good

    2. Of course, it will [do you good].

      Trust me, John, hanging my head in shame: The shorter the post the more I will miss. Give me an essay of mega proportions and I am all yours, the tiniest detail not escaping my attention. So, yes, of course, overlooked by me, YOU will be singing. That's great. Opening the diaphragm embracing life.

  12. Singing brings out a healing for me. I still cried buckets but It released tension inside me while singing. Go enjoy, steady up. Gabs🙂

    Have fun at the choir.

    1. It's strangely moving, I think it's because everyone is so ordinary and look as though they are having so. Much fun

  14. Absolutely stunning John - and do join a choir. Welsh choirs are the tops and every time you sing it will make you feel good.

    What a thrill - three tissues worth!

    I join with all who are glad to read that you're joining the nearby Community Choir. After all, as I read long ago, "He who sings, prays twice."

  21. I sang for many years and had a fabulous time. Now I dance and love it as much.

    I used to work in Queen Street in Cardiff when I was eighteen. Every time I heard the Welsh singing at Cardiff Arms Park for the Rugby tears would pour down my cheeks. Not a good look when you are trying to be cool. The Welsh singing still has the same effect on me forty year on. There is nothing like it. I think you will have a wonderful time, fantastic idea.

  35. Just the job John, all very therapeutic and uplifting.

  36. That was great. We have a choir in Toronto who challenged Rick Astley to sing with them. He accepted. The whole choir (and Rick)had the same sense of joy. Two thumbs up for you joining the choir.

  37. cool! hope they make a video of the choir's performance!

  38. That choir was on AGT for semi- finals tonight and brought the house down. They have to win this! They are marvelous and everything about them makes you feel good.

  39. What an inspired idea! You will love it, I think! I'm a little jealous.

  41. That's a great plan John. There's something very therapeutic about singing (in the shower, or alone in the car with the windows down!) and doubly so when singing with others. You don't have to be a Star Singer with a trained voice - I'm sure you'll love it.

  42. Auntie Glad would be pleased as punch I bet.

  43. I've actually been asked not to join in a chorus of Happy Birthday. Gives you some idea of my singing skills...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Fantastic - both the choir and your new plan!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you, and so glad you are joining a choir. I sing here in Provence with a French community choir and enjoy it so much. Have also made some good friends too.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great news! Keep busy.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Goosebumps from head to toe, thanks for that. I think joining the choir's a great idea. Would love to be able to sing, sadly, tone deaf.

  48. Totally and utterly amazing, sitting here crying like a baby.
