I Am Enough

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Hello everyone, I hope all of you are enjoying your holiday preparations and time with friends and family. We are slowly pulling things together for Hanukkah and Christmas. I'll get the tree up at some point this weekend but I need to replace lights first. Holiday baking will begin this weekend as well since I have a cookie exchange and Secret Santa at work next Tuesday. I sang in the Messiah yesterday with the Voices of Omaha and it was an incredible experience that I will be enjoying for years to come.

It was gorgeous and the sound in the hall was wonderful. I had never physically seen a harpsichord, much less heard one, before the concert so it was all very neat.

It is definitely a moving piece to sing and challenging to learn. We dedicated the Hallelujah chorus to our loved ones who are no longer with us.

Here are some pictures. I am the 3rd from the left in the picture with just the back row onstage.


  1. Wow! What an awesome experience that must have been for you! I'm so happy you were able to have that experience - there aren't many who can! Have fun with your baking... :)

  2. It was very very cool and I will likely look for more opportunities like this one next year. It was very inspiring and a good learning experience.
