Further Benefits Of Singing

Just a few further reasons why I love the shape-note community.

One of my singing friends offered to give me some old moving boxes that she had lying around her apartment. I went over and picked them up. She'd brought down a ginormous armful, and her arms are longer than mine. So I was carrying this large, awkward bundle home, pausing to rest every now and then and try to shift my arms around.

On one of these rests, just as I was picking up the bundle again, two more singers drove past and offered me and the boxes a ride home!

It's great to have friends, and singing is a great way to make them.

I'm catching up...moving...yuck! I dumpster dived for boxes my last move. We needed way too many of them. At least I had a truck to get them home. I feel for you carrying those unwieldy things for any distance. And yeah for friends!

They were definitely large and unwieldy boxes, but boy, they were good ones! I mean it, they're really high-class moving boxes. They fold out, they're just the right size, they have handles, they even have flaps designed specially to be tucked closed on the top. For a short-distance move like what I'm doing, they're like luxury moving boxes. Absolutely worth the schlep.

But I was really glad of the ride anyway!

They are. And the pair who gave me the ride are the couple at whose shape-note wedding I played the gaohu back in May.
