Jazz is the conversation

The cavalcade of change we experience is everywhere.  We each learn to deal with it in our own way.  It's true that if you get lemons you can make lemonade - but seriously how much lemonade do we have to make?  Inner strength is needed and we each find it in our own way.  I choose to find it by working at my singing.  The constant daily practice is focus for me, my meditation if you like, the breathing the feeling. Why do I do it?   It is imperative to me that my voice can handle the thoughts, ideas and feelings I want to convey.  I must listen to my body to enable my voice to be connected, warmed, relaxed, managed, cajoled, massaged, and ready.  I must be ready to express, exactly what I want to say, in the way I want to say it.  I must be ready to listen feel and understand those around me playing so I can join the conversation.  Jazz is the conversation.
