It often looks worse than it is
For once we had a full complement and four altos!
Nothing short of a miracle, so good did we sound.
Imagine my horror this morning to find we had 2 altos, 1 soprano plus three trebles and three men.
What a pity I thought, all that work on Friday for nothing and it is going to sound terrible.
Never judge anything/one by their appearance. I've heard it so many times but I never learn.
The up to date pictures of my leg (see last post but one), look fairly awful, yet it really doesn't hurt much at all, except for at night in bed, and is well into the healing process.
The way I shot out of church this morning, round the corner to the taxi stand (it was pouring) and was home only ten minutes after leaving church is a clear indication that the injury has done nothing to slow mke down.
In two hours time I have to do it all again. This time it is the Mayor's Civic Service.
I have absolutely no idea how many - or few - people will turn up, but we will undoubtedly sing our hearts out and large or small will contrive to sound better than we look.
Is there a lesson there?
