Witnessing Christmas

snow-covered-christmas-tree3Not having to be anywhere for Christmas this year has made all the noise of the season quietly come to a mere whisper.  It’s very quiet in my home.  I did put up some lights and small decorations as an offering to the season, but they aren’t what connects me to it.

This, for me, is a witnessing Christmas.  I’m still a part of the holiday, but this year, as a curious observer.  Watching other friends and family wrapped up in their own celebrations, I realize I have the opportunity to go deeper into the moment, then perhaps even they do.  Not burdened with planning or hosting dinners, parties, or celebrations, I get to ‘show up’, be present and see what transpires.

This state of being feels in direct opposition to what is being expressed in homes, stores, churches, and in the media.    I am aware of the non-doing quality of being present as opposed to the doing quality of  being ‘in action’.  I’m passively, but consciously participating.  This way of walking through the world has given me a great deal of freedom.  After this holiday has passed my hope is to keep this awareness as life becomes busy and full again.

But for now, I quietly witness a merry Christmas.

Free Concert this Sunday eve

2012-12-03 19.50.55I used to sing in my church choir when I was a teenager.  It was less about the church and more about the community and having fun sharing in song.  This past quarter I enrolled in South Seattle Community College’s community choir.  Felt like a fun thing to do.  Our ‘Mostly Messiah’ concert will be Sunday, December 9th at 7pm in Olympic Hall 120.  It’s free and open to the public.

What I’m reminded of this go-round of weekly choir practice is how singing can strengthen the voice.  It’s great for the heart and throat chakras.  I always feel these areas of my body a bit more acutely after singing.

The performance aspect is actually secondary.  I’m sure our concert will be great and those who attend will get into the holiday spirit.  If you come, there is a sing-along part of the show.

In pursuit of my artistic muse, I’m delving back into visual arts next quarter.  Perhaps coming back to choir at some point, but as much as it’s been enjoyable and fun, and the teacher, Paula Herd is fantastic, my artistic calling will want another means of expression.

I’ve been painting and drawing for years as well, but have never taken a formal class of instruction, so stay tuned for what develops by next spring.

In the meantime, lend your voices and open your ears for a free concert this weekend!
