What a blessing that opened my heart and tears [heart drawing]

I was really inspired by Melanie to listen to my heart.  I enjoyed hearing the choir of voices all singing as one.  I was not afraid to sing out.

Ever so special.

This was a wonderful, fun, uplifting, spiritual event — thanks to Sally & Annie for hearing Melanie a year ago & were inspired to make this event happen.   Thank you.  🙂

Holy Connection.  Loved it [heart drawing].  Than you.

Connectivity – from Patanjali quote on Children’s Chorale T-shirts to spirituals to threshold songs to singing together – we are one!

Something Different

As a way to host & pace an event, consider NOT dissipating the energy.  Melanie helped us generate good energy & feel it, and your well-intentioned announcements etc. kept disrupting it.  Melanie did a great job – thanks for bringing her.
