Singing in the Rain

Well, I'm not singing, but it sure is raining here. Not that long ago we had dust storms, now the season has well and truly broken. Everything has turned green, except for the deciduous trees, which are lovely Autumn colours.

I am not going out in the rain - I don't want to get a chill and end up susceptible to the bugs that are out there! Maybe I should be singing in the loungeroom though. A friend has reminded me via a study by "Chorus America" that Choral Singing is good for you!!! Everyone join a choir!

Many thanks to Angus for that. The study, here, has found various health benefits as well as benefits to the greater community.

My friend is showing this information around because he is a choral director and wants people to join up. When I remember how much fun I had in the school choir at Primary School, I am tempted to join Angus and the others. Even though I am certainly not a good singer, I know I would enjoy singing with the others.

The only reason I would begin going to church, I think, might be for the singing. I know that having a baby to sing to was one of the most fun parts for me in being a mother. Of course, now that my son is fifteen, he tells me to shut up if I begin singing a nursery favourite. I can sing my head off if he's not here though!

I found myself singing under my breath this morning, a snazzy little tune about a chuffaluffa steam train chugging along a track. I was a bit wobbly with the words, but I had a good time anyway. I heartily recommend a good sing-a-long with friends to cheer you all up.
