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.

"It Is No Secret"

I want to be respectful, but I've been singing this song on and off for a month, and I'm so sick of it. I sing it, I don't have time to write the blog, days pass, I sing it again, repeat often. Not singing my song of the day has not been helpful for my ongoing vocal studies. Singing is good, and it promotes improved pianistic sight reading as well. In the midst of my frantic holiday preparations I am in need of good things for me. I will try again.

I'm feeling very old, these days. Things that I could do reasonable well, say, last year (or so it seems in retrospect), I'm doing noticeably less well now. Piano playing and running are at the top of today's list, though I could add general ability to remember as well. My whole life would be much happier if I weren't feeling so very poor, also. Business has not been so great, too, and while I can accept this in a general sense, I'm torn between blaming myself for my lack of self-promotion, and pure panic over bills that I cannot currently pay.

Not writing on a regular basis has obviously left much scum at the top of my mind. Whining is so bothersome and boring. I will skim and try again tomorrow.
