Wednesday I missed posting because I was at a funeral. Sometimes I’m at funerals to sing professionally, and don’t know the deceased, and sometimes I’m there personally, and not singing.
On the occasions it’s both, it’s tough. Crying and singing don’t mix.
Plus, funerals tend to evoke other funerals for me. It’s like plant roots; you think this plant over here is on its own, easy to dig out, but it turns out the roots are entangled with other plants, some not even nearby, so that, if you tug, much more comes up than you expected.
I sang one of my songs, ‘Weep Not’, at the service. RIP.
