I completely love this

Ok, not about my work, but I had to share…

There’s a big article in the NY Times today about “community sings” – where people get together once a month or so and sing folk songs, regardless of how good or bad their voices are. I’ve thought a lot over the years about the appeal of karaoke, and also how stirring the group chanting at the start of a yoga class is.

Oh man. I so want to go to a community sing. I think now that I know that there are such things, I absolutely will get my ass to one sooner or later.

Also, I am hereby reinvigorating the idea of the Community Draw or the Drawing Party or whatever you want to call it, which I tried to start last year but it didn’t really work. Basically, a bunch of us get together and draw… and maybe sing, too. Who’s in?

    If you find a community sing (or invent one) I will totally go with you.

    Face it, Mary – our entire friendship is leading up to the moment when the two of us go for a carefree drive through Northern NJ, with the windows unrolled, singing “This Land is Your Land” at the top of our lungs. It’s inevitable.
