LOVE WILL GUIDE MY WAY

I knew this was your one-year anniversary and meant to write to you sooner. You made it through one year and that is a huge achievement. Each minute farther away from the amputation of your soul may be slow, torturous and imperceptible – but it is farther along. You will get there. You will always miss your son, but life won’t be filled with torture. Don’t give up hope. Continue reading

LAUGHTER AND TEARS – PART 2

I’ve decided to go with “less perfect,” or perfectly adequate as a better way of looking at my singing. I may not be Streisand, but there’s no one else who can sing like Judy Unger. And I have my own music to sing, too. Thank you, god, for this beautiful healing gift that I was given.

MY WORLD WAS FILLED WITH SONG

I find it astonishing how singing has become a perfect metaphor for my “new life.” I plan to continue singing my heart out and learning how to use my complete voice. And at the same time, I plan to navigate my new life with the expression of my true feelings. Continue reading

I OPENED MY EYES AND I CLOSED THEM AGAIN

I try to stay positive, even though I often have a sensation like I have cobwebs in both my eyes. Although this is challenging, I celebrate the many beautiful things that are happening in my new life. I am thankful I can work and thrilled to be working on a wonderful illustration assignment, which is going quite well. The income will allow me to continue singing and moving forward.

IT’S NO SECRET ANYMORE

I see great value in what I am doing with my life and where I am going. I am unapologetic. I believe I am the richest woman in the world!
There is a wonderful line in one of my songs. It is, “I go to places that heal me.” That is what my life is about; I heal myself and hope to heal other people, too. Continue reading

FINDING MY VOICE – PART 2

For most of my life, I have suppressed most of my feelings. From the time I was young, I never felt safe expressing anger and preferred instead to shove it away deep inside. Also, since ending my marriage I have been numb with guilt. My inner voice encouraged me to sing because singing is actually a perfect metaphor for freeing myself. I could not achieve the vocal results I wanted, because I was afraid to sing loudly. It felt risky for me and I did not like to hear what I perceived as a harsh tone. It led to breathiness overall – I believed that it was prettier. Continue reading

THE WONDERFUL METAPHORS – PART 3

I often love to write about metaphors; my song lyrics and stories are filled with them. Therefore, it is no coincidence that I see beautiful metaphors that relate what I’m learning about singing to improving my life. Continue reading

ONLY TEARS – PART 2

I decided I wanted a new arrangement for “Only Tears” that would fulfill my sentimental vision for this song. I was graduating college when I wrote “Only Tears,” and my lyrics expressed uncertainty about the future. Because I was getting married, I had some doubts over whether my friendships would endure, and that was the reason for my tears. Continue reading

SO LITTLE WAS REQUIRED

Although it was sunny outside, I was in a dark place. It was difficult not to cry. My eyes were teary as I told her that once again I felt beaten down by life. It was harder for me to smile because my eyesight was bothering me terribly. Continue reading

YOU FLEW AWAY

Was I really helping other people with my optimism or bringing myself back into my former sad world? I’ve written many times that the amputation of my soul was a permanent condition. And I’ve also said that grief is not recoverable. Such a contradiction to announce that I have healed! So in order to be more consistent, from now on I am going to say that, “I’m still healing,” instead of saying, “I have healed.” Grief is a process. It will follow me for the rest of my life.
