I Can So Too Sing

Singing Sally Stone by Garden Stones


Apparently humans sang before they used language as we know it. And even as language developed singing continued to play a major role in day to day life.

And They Sang All Day Photo by Ara 133 Photography

Not so long ago most people sang daily, individually and in groups, in homes, in churches, in pubs, in nature. Singing is sacred and everyday, ritualistic and spontaneous.

The benefits of singing are linked to this primacy and power of the human voice, and our basic instinct to use it.

Singing is something we all did when we were born, regardless of genetic makeup.

For the first nine months of our lives all the billions of us on the planet sang by relying on manipulation of our voice's pitch to meet our basic and fundamental needs.

A singing teacher told me that there’s no such thing as not being able to sing.

It’s just a matter of deprogramming ourselves from the voices that have said ‘You can’t sing’ or, in my case, ‘Muuuuum you CAN'T sing!’!




Go on now, it's your turn....I'm listenin....you know you're good...

While I was looking at this post I had the kettle on the fire. Then the kettle started whisteling -I thought, even a kettle can "sing!" (In Dutch when translated, you literally say that the kettle sings!)
Cute post:)

You know, I just saw a show about this ancient Indian language which is like no other in existence. Scientists who've studied it have found that its closest cousin is a birds song. Isn't that wonderful!!

My boys and I have been in the car a lot lately and we've been singing very loudly to our Sesame Street box collection....it's one of my favourites :)

I love that singing fool vase! How very cool :)

gretchenmist said...

this one made me laugh, thanks :)

This is fantastic, it made me happy!! :) Thank you SO much for including my singing cows :) I love the singing fool vase too!

Glenda-TwoCoolTexans said...

Oh my, there are TONS of fun stuff on your blog. It made me laugh also. What a fabulous blog you have!

Kathy said...

I agree with Glenda, so much to see and all is so different. I think this is a top notch blog for sure!

Renee said...

Well it is obvious I need to present myself to the singing teacher and then we will hear what tune she sings.

xoxoxo

Love Renee

A very refreshing post and a good reminder. Something about the voice can conjure a whole world, and for visual people in particular, there is something very mysterious about that. You might enjoy the Brazilian singer Marisa Monte.

Just FAB! & still loving the house :D

What a cool theme and collection of pieces! Love the singing cow photo especially. Thank you for your nice comment on my site -- I love your Etsy shop, too!

Tumble Fish Studio said...

No, I really can't sing. But, I do it anyway. We still sing campfire songs in the car even though my kids are 15 and 17 and just roll their eyes at us. Only more embarrassing to them would be if we danced too.

arrrrrrrrooooooooooooooooooogggggggggh

And how the heart opens up and all the realms listen when you do.

Hey Harriet said...

I'm quite sure that the cute dog in the last photo can hold a far better tune than I can. You seriously do not want to hear me sing! Just ask my neighbours how bad I am! They'll tell ya!

Chrisy said...

Thanks for all the feedback…wish I’d seen that program on the Indian ‘birdesque’ language…and have ‘found’ Marisa Monte…gorgeous singer in every way…and those few that don’t think they can sing well I’ll have to take your word for it…tho I expect you to keep practising and not let anybody stop you…la laaaa laaaarrrr....happy days to you all my sweet things…

agreed with most saying that a long kiss is completely appropriate.
