It Isn't?

"I must be singing too loud."

Several pews ahead of me is a young girl who turned and looked right at me as I sang. She frowned, too. I admit I cannot carry a tune but I do love to sing. At her glance I lower my voice and sing much quieter. We're in a church in a city. There are nearly 1000 people at Mass, and sure, she is several pews ahead of me. But still. She looked right at me. It's only later in the Mass that I notice her turning and looking at other people that way too. And they weren't even singing. Imagine that.

This was hysterical, Hope. I'm glad you noticed the frowning girl was frowning at everyone, so you could sing again. Belt it out, dear heart!!!!

Perhaps she just has a sour state of mind?
I cannot carry a tune, and sing very softly in church. I'm very self conscious about it.

Did you ever see Brian Regan's skit on that topic?

This made me smile. Even in recovery, paranoia can creep in.

Love and prayers to you Hope.
