What Would You Do If I sang Out Of Tune

That’s a fair question for someone who can’t sing, and that IS NOT me! Vocalizing, harmonizing, are things I still do and quite well. Of course the idea was to get your attention, because I’ve no intention to sing to you, or at least musically.

What I do intend is to write. That can be music to the mind for some, and for others it may be the beginning of discovering writing in a new way. When you think about it, words have to be written for a song, and then it generally gets set to music. There are occasions where a tune is heard in a musicians mind, and the words come later. It’s the words that lend meaning, and the music enters the heart and spirit of the listener to create that something special. It’s strange, but that “something special” can’t always be described with words!
