Your Life is a Garden Worth Tending


How about a little spring?

I was so ready for it.  Were you?
I have enjoyed the simple and rewarding messy chore of getting some planting done in my garden.
David Marshall has been over here rehabilitating my deck.
There are wonderful colorful flowers peeking out all over.

It feels good.

 How about a little spring in your sing?  I know it is silly, but let’s get our congratulations hat on and enjoy the progress you are making in your fertile lives.  Our website will soon have a Congratulations Page so that we can enjoy NOC Studio Singers’ wonderful accomplishments. So much beautiful singing is happening.  Let’s take a look at specific bench marks and goals that keep you feet moving forward row by row.  Along with that, how can you be always in the moment and still set those goals and enjoy the progress in that very instant.

This NOC Studio set up for spring and summer and some of the fall is taking shape.  Executive Assistant Excellante, Liz Bacon, is weeding out dates and getting all the emails set up.  If you haven’t updated her with you vitals, please, do.  Plant your PR photo, too and your updated resume on her email, so we can broadcast your wonders on this web site.  We have several Master Classes scheduled, a Wednesday noon concert at the Old Church, and Schubert evening, a house concert,
and a Fall Retreat at Skamania Lodge among other wonderful projects.

Renee Favand-See is finishing up her commissioned composition for Resonance Ensemble.  It will be premiered on March 18th and 19th with that wonderful group and the sensitive conducting of Kathy FitzGibbon.   I am holding a reception in my home to congratulate Renee after the concert on the 18th.  Plan to come for that harvest.

Blessings to each and every one of you: each of you, living, growing, sneezing, greening and adding on one leaf at a time to your beautiful and challenging lives.  Oh, and forgive all my gardening humor, but I can’t help it!  It is, after all,
spring and you are fertile soil!
