i sing

Moderately well, I think. I thought. I really don’t know anymore.

Lately something has been pulling me toward it. Strongly. Fiercely.

So I’ve made these videos. Posted them on YouTube. Posted them to my tumblr page. Even posted them on Facebook.

But I feel like I’m chasing something that I just can’t catch. Maybe it’s the complete lack of feedback. Maybe that’s because I can’t do what I thought I could do. I listen to my favorites and I feel like I want to do what they do. But then I spend my day finishing my dissertation prospectus and I can’t say I’m excited and that’s frustrating as hell.

What is it?

  1. You are a beautiful singer. But then again, you are also a talented writer. I think it’s gotta be hard for people who are able to live in both the worlds of the mind and the creative soul. You must feel pulled in both directions all the time, feel the need to feed both sides of you, so you tip this way and then that. I say if you feel like singing, you sing … in whatever venue presents itself.

  2. You sing beautifully; you know that. πŸ™‚ As for the lack of comments, it takes quite a bit to get a reaction from people these days. If Jennifer Hudson couldn’t win American Idol, then I don’t know who can.

    I say this half teasingly, half seriously–a lot of things seem to pull at you fiercely. πŸ˜‰ I agree with Nazie; it is hard to be heavily invested in both sides of your brain. I imagine part of the challenge is integrating those two parts better, or maybe giving into one side more fully…
