the introverted artist

I had taken up singing in public when the big divorce, the one with kids, tore my life apart. First, I joined the choir at the church where my kids frequented, to see them and to release my tensions in second tenor. Most adult choirs are replete with basses and baritones, but most grown men eschew singing tenor, so I volunteered to sing a little higher. As things settled down, I moved my act to the karaoke stage. Few will understand what a huge leap that was, for although I had always sung, my anxieties had always precluded a solo act in front of an audience. But I found strength in the spotlight, going to the one place no one would have ever sought me. I became one of my characters, the introverted artist, performing for reasons no one could ever guess.
