At the end of the day

When I shower in the dark of night, with just one small touch light on in the far corner of the bathroom, somehow – just somehow – life feels magical, and as though anything is possible…

Thanksgiving

Sometimes, I find myself looking for inspiration, for a muse in my life.

And then, I remember the shower, a place where any and all problems find their solutions (and many options for them, at that).

Dear God, thank you for western showers.  I really appreciate and value them, for more reasons than a few.  🙂

Squeaky Clean Time

I really don’t get what it is about showers, but they always get me.  Without fail, – at least, I think it is without fail – every time I shower, I end up singing.  Even in the middle of the night, as was the case just now, with people sleeping in the next room, there I am, singing.

This is not to say that I am belting a out-of-tune, almost unidentifiable, somewhat annoying tune in the middle of the night (or ever, really).  I am certainly an adequate singer for the things I end up singing in the shower, and I also keep them to a reasonably low volume, no matter the time of day or night.  But, in the middle of the night, after I catch myself for singing, and am in the middle of going through the reasoning that I need to be as quiet as possible, no matter how loud the shower may seem to me, because any extra sound means extra noise and an increase in the likelihood of disturbing the sleeping folk, I suddenly notice that I am already singing again(!).  I’m in the middle of “scolding” myself for the act, and I’ve already started it up again.  I’m like a little kid or something.  Put me in that shower, and I guess my brain gives up regular function, preferring instead a song-filled youthful path for the time being.

Anyway, I’m just sharing this, because I think it’s silly that I can’t seem to stop myself from singing in the shower, even when I actually want to be quiet (like tonight).  I truly love the whole idea of singing in the shower, and I love when people do it.  There is just something unique about showering that almost always leads to song, and I find that miraculous and beautiful.  So, embrace your singing when you shower.  And get some lessons, if you’re concerned that you don’t sing well enough.  I know that Incertsinly have done that, and I loved the lessons.

Anyway,… sing away, and stay clean!
