Stock Up

Choral conductors – time to stock up.

Here’s hoping today begins a few days of breathing, gratitude, food, family. It will for me.

I am also trying to be intentional about filling up on patience and restfulness.

December is when everyone remembers about the beauty of choirs – and wants to hear them. You’ll spend the four weeks slammed with gigs, gig requests, caroling parties, tree lightings, concerts, and on and on. To say nothing of the universal business of parties, shopping, and school events that come along with December.

Exactly a month from now you’ll be sitting Christmas morning, taking your first deep breath since… right now.

There’s no avoiding it; just keep moving forward and stock up now, while you can.
