I wrote last week about the fact that structure, properly used, can set us free to do what we really want to do. Knowing the intricacies of a musical composition so well that you’ve built muscle memory means that when you actually get up to perform you can focus on the performance. Your structure is in place; you can now build on that.
So, this past weekend I was once again in charge of the retreat breakfast for my wonderful, wonderful chorale. I would say there were at least 75 people there. It ain’t quite the same as running a Presidential campaign, but still!
