Wow-ful Women Wednesdays

My last two evenings have been spent with some people I adore driving to the armpit of Ontario (or was that the....nevermind) to do some Vocal Artistry. It was likely the most profitable 7 hours I have spent since labour with my last baby.

I learned several things that will stick with me forever:

First: holding your tongue with a J-cloth feels really gross.

Second: I cannot give a massage and sing at the same time.

Third: There are 640 crayons in a 640 pack of crayons.

Fourth: Broccoli soup should never be that thick.

Fifth: I should never be allowed to sit between Kate and Tim ever.

But seriously, the training was excellent. In fact, our instructor was so good that after 7 hours of his techniques being taught, and after hearing him name-drop Rachael Lampa several times, I can now sing like this Wow-ful Woman. She is amazing! And now I am too! Just wait until you hear that my range has increased to match hers. It is simply astounding what I can do now! Who knew that by relaxing my laryngeal tension I could gain 2 octaves and look good in shiny pants like Rachael Lampa!


All kidding aside, it was time extremely well-spent and I am more blown away than ever by the brilliance of God to create such an incredible instrument as the human voice. Now in Tim Carson's words, I need to get on to the vocal treadmill and get busy. Time for some serious workouts so I can be a good steward of the mite the Lord has given me. And if you ever get a chance to use his products, or see Tim Carson in person, please do. It will open your eyes to a whole new level of communicating through song.

Well said! Incidentally, I think I had a nightmare about that soup. I can't wait to see how God uses these techniques to transform your already beautiful voice. I'm so glad I get to sit back and listen! By the way, would you like Strength or Freedom first?

Sounds like you all had a fun and profitable time. Good for you all. Must have been great to go on a 'big person' field trip :)
