This will definitely not be a peaceful month for me. So I have decided to kick off my National A Capella Month with a lullaby titled “Peace” from a children’s musical called the Music Machine. It is a very simple, sweet lullaby. And simple lullabies’ are deceptively hard to sing!
It is possible that I shall post lamentations over the possible loss of my voice for the next several weeks, along with songs. Bear with it, singing is like breathing to me, and as right now I can hardly do both, I may have to give up singing to breathe better. My tongue has prolapsed into my airway and I struggle all day to take a breath. My choices are a tracheostomy, removing part of my tongue or facial reconstruction. I chose the easiest: goodbye tongue.
And possibly goodbye voice. We shall see.
As Job says, “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.” May I have the same attitude.
I hope you enjoy this sweet lullaby. If not your speed, pass it over!
