Tis the (Music) Season ---- Day 7/274

Walk: Cavalry Presbyterian Church Concert
Distance: Half mile, Medium yoga

Ciwt joins other family members in not being able to carry a tune.  When by some fluke she made the high school choir, her friends voted her president because they thought it was such a joke. Thankfully for all concerned, Ciwt declined the position as well as her place in the choir.

But she's always admired those with good voices and the opportunities that gift opens - being a qualified member of a choir for one. By chance, a church just down the block from Ciwt has one of the most admired music programs in San Francisco, so Ciwt can walk to their concerts throughout the year.

Of course, there are Numerous ones during the holiday season.  Gorgeous to listen to but also extensive and exacting enough to make tone deaf Ciwt secretly relieved all she has to do is walk down the block and listen.  The choir members themselves, - those volunteer, chruch members with beautiful voices - commit hour after hour, day after day, week after week to learning words (often in ancient or foreign languages), rehearsing, rehearsing, rehearsing.    

Tra la.
