Pamela R why do singers take so long to start? (174* d) RE: why do singers take so long to start? 14 Aug 15

Wow. REAL singers. Shouting in bold. Most clarifying.

(end sarcasm)

I can understand being angry when song circles don't go the way we hoped. Especially when we started them. It's disappointing and frustrating. I've been there, and I get that. But I don't see a lot of value to anyone in venting.

I think people come to song circles motivated by different, equally legitimate but sometimes conflicting goals. The posts above offer good evidence of this. So if the overarching goal is for all of us to receive more of what we wanted out of song circles, maybe it would help to clearly identify our own goals, understand the other possible goals people might have, and think about how best to cultivate different types of circles that are dedicated to serving these different goals.

I'd be glad to discuss that sort of thing with anyone interested, but perhaps that should be a separate thread.
