Finding my voice again

I've been taking a class at The Open Center called "The Natural Singer" which is taught by a guy named Claude Stein. I'm finding it is a Zen approach to singing. I'm not doing it because I want to be a singer, but because I'm hoping that freeing my singing voice will help to unlock my writing voice, which has been stifled lo these many years.

So far, it's been fun.

And no, I haven't written a word since I started taking the class.

I took a Music Improv Class at The PIT earlier this year, for the same reason: I thought it would free up my brain for songwriting purposes. I haven't written a damn lyric since.

I wish you luck with the Singing Experiment. I'm a singer. I love singing. I just haven't found a song I actually want to sing in a long time. I'm in a funk. It sucks ass.

Wasn't this once called The Jane Doe Project? I haven't read this in a while, so I could be wrong. I need to go through it and catch up.

By the way, you do know me...

Ah, well, it kind of became a dumping ground for all kinds of mental detritus -- maybe it's just more writing practice for me!

The updates on Dear Jane are coming...trust me.

Nick, I think a karaoke night is in the stars for you and me!
