Things To Do With No Voice

1. Give a conference paper.
2. Lead a song workshop.

Yes, folks, I am a crazy lady. I beat back an incredibly ill-timed cold in time to be basically healthy for the convergence of Yiddish Break (a weekend of Yiddish-themed activities for college students and grad students hosted at the U of C, for which I was on the planning board and scheduled to lead a song workshop) and the local graduate music conference. However, as a parting shot, the cold settled in my chest, leaving me with half a voice when I woke up this morning.

This did not stop me from delivering the paper and then, after a couple of hours of rest, leading the song workshop. I am either She Of The Iron Voice or She Of The Feather Brain, depending on how you look at life.

But it was definitely worth it. Tomorrow, we dance.

I'll rest in the afternoon. There's a brunch and dance workshop to attend first!

:-) Good for you, FP! I'm glad you still got to lead the workshop and I hope you are feeling well enough for the dancing today.

You could not keep me away from the dancing with a ten-foot pole!

She Of The Iron Voice or She Of The Feather Brain

Or possibly both. One doesn't necessarily preclude the other.

Or it all could just be an indication of how motivated you were. It all seems to have turned out pretty well.

And then there was dancing.

Yiddish Break was a bigger success than the planning committee ever let ourselves imagine. I was especially cheered to see how many people came to the song workshop and sang enthusiastically. And dancing this morning just made everything more cheerful!
