While I was sitting in the pews at rehearsal today, I couldn't help but ponder over some of the comments mentioned in class and on the blog over the past few weeks. Experiencing the choir as a bystander made me realize just how different our experience is from those sitting in the audience. We're like the inner workings of a clock, each piece needing to fit perfectly into the next piece for the clock to function properly. Only we can't see the end product, the face of the clock, the time. We only see and hear those directly by us. Only those who are on the outside can truly experience the product of our hard work. We are the harshest judges, yet we're the only ones who can't truly hear ourselves.
