Music is in my blood, in my soul, in my heart, and on my mind 24 hours a day, 7 days a week....365. But that doesn't mean I sing on here every day. I sing when I'm milking the cows, I sing in the shower, I sing when I'm gardening, I wake up with a song in my head damn near every single morning......sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes not so much.
I realize I don't have the best voice in the world, and that's okay with me. I'm not here to entertain others, nor am I here to try to impress anyone. I do this because it feels good.
Punching out a song is very cathartic to me. It purges my soul to sing at the top of my lungs, or to whisper a song out against the walls of my house when I'm not feeling my best really helps me to keep focused on life. I have had a plethora of health problems over the past 8 years, and in a very practical sense singing helps me to exercise my vocal cords, and the connection from my brain to the speech centers that were damaged by a stroke in 2015.
I was left with a bad stutter right after the stroke, and singing was the ONLY thing that helped me to smooth that out. You can hear the stutter in my voice on most of my songs after March of 2015. As of last year I was diagnosed with a rare, congenital heart condition called non-compaction cardiomyopathy,...which is what caused the stroke in the first place. My long-term prognosis is rather grim (suffice it to say I likely won't live to be 80-something). But for now, I'm doing much better, and will continue to be a happy, loving person, and sing as much as I can, and as much as others around me can tolerate. lol.
I'm working on getting some back problems fixed now, and once that's done, I'm going to LIVE!! Going back to a passion of mine that I let go almost 40 years ago; roller skating....which will co-exist nicely with my love of music.
Thank you for reading, and if you dare....listening. Beth
