WARNING!! This is not visually appealing at all. My camera was sitting on top of the piano and facing the wall for four minutes.
This is a recording of Todd and me rehearsing for a duet we have to sing Saturday evening. It is not great. We screw up notes and words and me playing the piano while singing typically leads to sad noises. (Happily we will have an accompanist who actually can play the piano.)
The reason I am posting this is because listening to it makes me happy. Hearing Todd's lovely singing voice makes me fall in love with him a little bit all over again. The first time he and I sang together, I was four and he was five. All these years later I still haven't tired of singing with him. Even more than that, I love that while rehearsing we are silly. We laugh and joke and sing.
When I listened to this again today, I thought, "If Todd were suddenly gone one day, this is what I would remember. How I felt doing this. How I always feel doing this."
While this is no treat for your eyes, to my ears at least it sounds like love.
