Unitarian Hymnal Sing-along

In which Kathryn attempts to sing a different song everyday from the Unitarian Universalist hymnal, 'Singing the Living Tradition'. Earlier posts are based on songs from the Reader's Digest songbooks she found at yard sales as a child, including: 'Reader's Digest Treasury of Best Loved Songs', 'Reader's Digest Family Songbook', and 'Reader's Digest Family Songbook of Faith and Joy'. Bonus Folk song material from: 'Folk Song USA', by John and Alan Lomax.

"Paper Doll"

This is just a silly guy-song. Not offensive, just silly. Melodically not boring, but not inspiring, either. Let's move on. I'm almost done this book, and trying to decide if I'm brave enough to tackle 'Songs of Faith and Devotion' after all.

I feel pulled, uncomfortably, between my desires for the quiet, and for the connection of human contact, the voice of a friend. Pulled between stillness and the accomplishment of activity. I muddle along, getting done when I can, taking breaths now and again to feel my chest rise, and enjoying the time I have with friends, the push and pull of conversation. I'm looking forward to having a little more focus tomorrow.
