There is one curious piece of information that has stayed with me from my years as a singing student. Such thing is this: “Your tongue is the biggest obstacle to Singing, yet it is one of the most powerful muscles in your body”. And no wonder, as the tongue is highly responsible for holding our head upright, forming all the subtleties of our language, and helping digest our food. The tongue (the tongue is actually a group of 8 muscles), together with the diaphragm and the larynx (what a coincidence, the main Singing muscles!) are the only skeletal muscles that can function independently from the skeleton, that means you can move them without moving your ‘frame’, without being noticed.
“We just have sex but I don’t allow myself to have any feelings for him/her, just in case I get attached.” In our current society, this seems to be the daily bread. People seem to have lost touch with their inner selves, in more than one way. Let’s dedicate a few seconds of silence to this😞.
In a time of adversity
I wanted to save the world.
There was a chance.
“Wake up! can you not see?”
shaking everybody’s shoulders,
to awaken them from their sleep.
Some close ones rose against me,
they did not want to get up.
