Subject: RE: 2011 Getaway Reports
It was even lovelier than I anticipated. This time I was in my mobility scooter which gave me freedom to go where I wanted when I wanted. I was so touched by the kindness of people who seemed to mobilize out of nowhere to help me open doors, empty trays. being very grumpy about the political situation, The Getaway felt like a community where life was lived as it ought to be lived. There were many memorable moments for me: Sally Rogers' new song about building houses; Peter Brice belting out a terrifying rendition of Marie Lavaux in the ballad session, getting to know the Kline's better, hanging with my magical house guests, Abby and Dani, the night before, hearing Jocelyn sing, hearing people talking about the lovely singing of my voice students without knowing they were my voice students, making mountain gospel harmonies with Mitzi, Linda, Kathy, and Sandy, hearing David and Lucy do "Heat Wave"-- who could ask for more?

A special shout out to Janie Endres and hope she will be there next year. Also thanks to the people who taught me so much at my vocal clinic. You rock!
