I often write about those beautiful little moments in life that catch you unawares.
I guess it's the drama queen in me
My recent encounter with a kindness inside St. Asaph Cathedral was one I shall remember for quite some time but tonight's experience will rank a close second in that memory bank of moving moments.
In choir tonight we learned the Nigerian song Ise Oluwa -sing for water
And after a bit of a struggle we nailed it!!!!
Before we finished practice Jamie our eleven year old choir master asked us to sing it again, but this time very Gently and as we did he disappeared and turned off the lights of the little Welsh village hall.
In almost absolute darkness over fifty people sang without the chains of sight and competition and self consciousness and the noise we produced was simply magical.
And the silence after we had finished proved that we all had been moved in the same lovely way
This choir has nourished me
