kinder sings the praises of the grasshopper family he has created.
“how narrow is the vision
that exalts the busyness of the ant
above the singing of the grasshopper.”
(my glamour shot after returning from the salon and in full singing mode)
i love that my class
that i am not a top notch singer
they are the best audience ever
very non-judgmental and accepting
as i belt out my tunes
and try to get them on board
i often improvise my own lyrics
when i only know part of them
think of something i’d like to add
many times accidentally
creating my own key
it’s all about the gusto
and not so much the skill.
“music in the soul can be heard by the universe. “
the more injuries you get, the smarter you get.
yes, it’s a sports injury.
no, i was not
playing in a world cup match
representing the u.s.a.
walking in the house
while singing bohemian rhapsody.
a door jumped in my way.
out of nowhere.
now my baby toe is broken.
and feels a little jacked up.
i must be a genius by now.
