My voice is usually soft & rather smokey, due to Hashimoto's Disease (auto-immune, thyroid, near vocal chords) but I sing anyhow. Some like it since it's rather unique.
Its so great to share w/friends here that enjoy singing....it's a passion for me &
in my opinion, cleanses the soul! If you're up for a duet, please do....I love duets!
I sure enjoy meeting so many interesting people that share the love of singing here.
Recently moved to the great northwest (WA. state) & I'm relishing in the changes in weather & seasons. The hot dry weather of S. Calif. was too consistent, just seemed that the summer lasted 3/4 of the year. It's been easy adjusting to the new surroundings, the forest, the mountains & the evergreens, all of which we truly appreciate. Leaving some family & many friends behind was somewhat difficult, however, we welcome their visits & so far have had several. Thank you for coming by and for sharing the love of music & singing here. No need to ask permission to duet, just dive in and do it!

Now that I've settled in to my new surroundings, I've found a variety of things to do here. There are a few places that have live bands with mostly classic rock music or country where we can go dancing. I also attend many concerts to see my faves perform when they're in the area. There's a karaoke pub nearby & I've become friends with in the gals who run the karaoke, they're a real kick and it's always fun to
get among others who have a passion for singing/music. However people come out of the woodwork in summertime and too many singers limit your time to perform. Gardening, both flowers, watching nature flourish from the care you give it is such a gift. Then there's travel, we do plenty of getaways and we also have a 5th wheel trailer to get out camping to explore new areas, however we plan to attempt to sell it this year. Within the next few years we plan to scale down to a smaller, easier to manage home possibly in southern OR. We love Vancouver, WA but must be near some family and friends. My husband is very athletic and since he no longer plays baseball, his current sport is golf and he's joined a men's club & golfs once a week. He also enjoys hiking with our active border collie/Australian shepherd on an almost daily basis. His hobbies allow me quiet time to sing, my favorite hobby, here in SS. Recording is so much easier when it's quiet. As for friends, we have some new ones in the area and continue to nurture the friendships who are now distant from us by having them visit and stay with us on a fairly regular basis. There have also been many people here in SS that have formed very comfortable friendships. I feel I know many of you quite well and it's heartwarming to have people all over the world who share the love of music and listen & encourage one another sing. SS has truly been a bonding force here. Duets are fun, if it's 'open' jump in and join me, no need to ask. PMs are another way to further the growing relationships we start here. I'm a firm believer that the strong bonds people have are due to the attention you give to those you want to be close with. If it's one-sided, it won't last, so if you truly like people, show them that by being attentive to one another, 'feed the friendship' and it will blossom like a vibrant flower!
4/2/18 This Hashimoto's (auto-immune) kicks my butt, when I get sick it lingers on often times for several months. Just slows me down somewhat, it can't stop me.....nope! Since
Dec 2016 I'd been ill w/ bronchial pneumonia, that never quite went all the way AWAY & I'd had an adverse reaction (sever allergic) to the antibiotics I'd been given. It gave me a rash that lasted nearly 3 months, w/ a mere 3 doses, I'd stopped taking it, for the itching & rash that drove me into a frenzy. I think that the meds. did something to my system which is pretty sensitive.......and I've had chronic inflammation since/congestion/laryngitis too sometimes.
Thanks for continuing to listen and comment, I enjoy sharing w/ my ss family here, a truly amazing and caring group! GBY all and sing on & continue to sparkle! I'm here every spare moment I get and enjoy hearing from my ss family often. We're united in song, all of us!
1/7/19 Happy New Year..........lets make it a singing one & enjoy the talents of one another here, sharing duets and building friendships. Staying in touch creates a bond that will hopefully build lasting relationships. There may be times we need to reach out to one another for moral support, often times a few encouraging words can make a difference.
That being said, know that a note here or there is gladly accepted and will be answered.
I love to write almost as much as I love to sing, hopefully many of you do as well.
