IWSG DAY, APRIL 1, 2020, The Fear Is Real But Keep Moving, By Pat Garcia

Hello Everyone,

It is IWSG Time!

IWSG is a writers' support group created and led by Alex Cavanaugh. It is an immense help to many of us who do not mind sharing our insecurities, our successes, or giving encouragement and support to others.

The Fear Is Normal But Keep Moving

As a nation, we have been in lockdown a week. Some states started their lockdown long before the German Parliament called for it nationally. For me, the most crucial question was not how to deal with the lockdown but how to keep myself from becoming immobilized by fear. 

So, I have started sharing some of the posts that I write for The Child and The Prophet. I share them on one of my blogs and Facebook. Sharing these posts has re-energize the playful child within me. 

The second thing I decided to do was to return to singing A Capella. It comes naturally to me because that is how I discovered the voice in me. However, because I sing with a band or a piano or guitar accompaniment, I had forgotten how beautiful it is to carry a tune and feel my vocal cords expand and vibrate as I let my voice be the instrument. 

I don’t have any idea how long Corona will last, but while it is here, I am going to make the best out of it. So, this week I’m planning to sit at my piano and play until my heart is completely content. 

Wishing all of you a great April. 

Shalom aleichem,

Pat Garcia
