Sounds from the World

Wandered out to find the world
Caught a glimpse of you

Wearing your baseball hat
Playing your ancient instrument

Told myself to move on
I'd find the time soon

Life got in the way
Found myself trapped 

Looking out my window 
Was all I could do

Circumstances altered
I wandered back again

Lingered and listened
Let your sounds take over

Lost myself 
Found the world

What if I had never wandered?
What if I had never heard you?

Disappearing Act

I'm staying in the Katong section of Singapore.
In the midst of high rises, darling little houses.
This is the most difficult post I have written. Not because I have anything bad to tell you. I just couldn't get to the right thoughts and then to the best words. Enough. The timer's on for 15 minutes and at the end of that time, I will upload this post.

I know I've been absent for a long time. As most of you know, I'm in Asia on tour with the musical Sister Act.

To be honest, I have been completely distracted by my life, sometimes positively, sometimes negatively. The questions, the uncertainty frequently overwhelmed me. I had very little information and no confirmation. Then the project was confirmed and started. And consumed my life. How could I explain that to you when I couldn't find my own way through it?

I lost my blogging habit.

I'm not sure what fruit that is. Interesting, isn't it?
Now I'm on the other side, of the distraction and the planet (although I'll be home next week for most of June). Space is opening up in my brain and ideas are starting to flow. I still have understudy rehearsals and of course, 8 shows a week, and I can feel that I have to restart my blogging habit. But I'm on my way back.

To get started, some photos and a list of possible future posts.

That's the iconic Marina Bay Sands. I work in the same complex.

I've had time to visit one Hindu temple here in Singapore. That's all

Posts to Watch For:

Do Your Job - I have stories.

Living With Uncertainty - destined to be an all-time hit.

Learning to Let Go

Clear Intentions - currently, one of the biggest lessons for me.

Embrace the Good - the other big lesson.
