Yesterday was a good day. I felt strong and in control. A friend has loaned me her +/-20 minute strength/cardio CD and it was my second time through. Wow. I like it. I'm sore but it's a good sore. Then I met with Donna to go over "Sure on this shining night" by Samuel Barber. But, it was so much more than that. We started with gentle scales and then exercises by Concone for low voice. These are precious. The whole time together was exciting. I'm reading Anita Diamant's The Red Tent right now (tks Megan)and came across this: "It was like hearing a piece of fabric woven with all the colors of a rainbow." That's how it felt. Donna has a beautiful piano,and she is a master of it. The arrangements which accompany the vocal lines were exactly like that. The lyrics of the song:

Sure on this shining night
Of star-made shadows round,
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground.
The late year lies down the north.
All is healed,all is health.
High summer holds the earth.
Hearts all whole.
Sure on this shining night
I weep for wonder
wandring far alone
Of shadows on the stars.

What a fabulous challenge.

I also was able to work out more details on Nov 25. North Nova Education Centre will host the free public talk, which The Reason for Hope will host! It is all coming together. 7:00 p.m. Dr. Rob Rutledge and Dr. Tim Walker, Founders of the Healing and Cancer Foundation and authors of The Healing Circle. An evening and message that will have something for everyone!

It is a rainy and windy morning. Our walks will be short ones. But it will be another great day. Church tomorrow and I am on the hunt for a scarf to match my choir gown.

Peace to you all. Make the time to do something you love!!

Emma Lee

  1. Addendum: I had such a great time with Donna when looking for another time to get together, I COMPLETELY forgot about my next chemo and booked it for almost the exact same time! Lol.
