KSVS Summer Intensive Blog: #4

USE YOUR MIND

images-1 I suspect Kim Stern might be a mind reader.

 Exhibit A:

Kim:  Think of two dolphins – one jumping through your belly and out your mouth.  And one jumping into your mouth and down your throat.

 

Me:  (THINKING OF THE DUELING DOLPHINS) “Key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e, key-e,”

(SUDDENLY FORGETTING ABOUT THE INCOMING DOLPHIN AND ONLY CONCENTRATING ON THE BELLY GUY)

“Key-e, key-e, key-e.”

Kim:  Don’t forget about the dolphin jumping in your mouth.

Me:  What?!???!  How do you know what I’m thinking and not thinking?!?

Because she listens.  And because thoughts matter.  Singing is athletic and it’s mental.  Great singing is intentional.  Lesson learned today – don’t go on auto-pilot, don’t get mentally lazy, the perceptive audience knows when I’m doing my work.  And I wouldn’t want any other kind!
