I am TIRED. I had a rehearsal last night and woke up way before my alarm this morning. I came in to work early to make up for leaving early yesterday so I could make it in all the traffic across the bay to the rehearsal. My feet hurt; I knew ... Read more

From SISSYFEB48: "You can't pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself." That's what I'm doing this weekend. That's not what I planned. I'd taken today off to sing a midday Good Friday service, and expected to do Saturday Easter Vigil and... Read more

I had one of my infrequent insomnia nights and seriously considered calling in today. Instead I got up, did some stretching, ate a good breakfast, and went out the door. I've been clock-watching today, but I've got less than three hours to go,... Read more
