THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD
Updated: Jun 26, 2021
Well, that's certainly what it's felt like over the past year and a half! I think that part of me went down a rabbit hole there for a bit, as I felt like I didn't really want to sing. The loss of financial security, the loss of being able to perform, to run my choir, to teach students in person obviously took a toll. It has helped a bit to know, however, that so many other musicians have been in the same boat.
Happily, over the past couple of months I have felt like I wanted to sing again. Don't get me wrong, I have exercised my voice (and teaching online has helped with that too) but it's not the same as actually wanting to sing. Now I am enjoying it once more, and looking forward to what the future will hold. It has certainly been the proverbial long and winding road, and it's felt like I was standing at that door just waiting, leading me back to that part of me that's a singer.
I thought it would be apt, therefore, to post that very song here for you (certainly one of my three favourite Beatles' songs). The lyrics are perfect, fitted to so many of the challenges that life throws at us.
