Tonight's rehearsal resulted in an almost perfect blending of voices, in song, and a perfect blending of voices in laughter between songs. I have experienced singing plainsong for the first time, and am learning to find a Zen place in the chant-like responsory passages.

Tomorrow, I will begin a new blending of the facets of my personality: writer and general recluse must compromise with wage earner, as I'm starting a new job on Monday. I'd hesitated to post about it, lest I jinx it, or talk myself out of it. As it is, I must constantly remind myself, “This is not forever, and it does not define me.” (This starts tomorrow when I must go sign forms and have fingerprints taken.)

I will not be listing the name of the company, but the line of work is a familiar one, and I shall leave it at that.
