Hi there! How are you? We have been pretty good over here. Enjoying the beautiful Spring blossoms everywhere and the more frequent sun breaks too!
Maybe it’s the Spring energy or the fact that I’ve started the second part to the Brené Brown online class but I’m feeling inspired! I have been wanting to try encaustic art forever but I’ve always been a bit intimidated by all that comes with it.

Unfortunately it takes her a while to get to the freedom she achieves in her high notes. Most times it doesn’t happen until the very end of the song. Why is this? Aren’t lower notes, by default, easier to sing than high notes? Not necessarily. Continue reading Tamar Braxton’s Voice
