Today, I had a fun day with people from the Harmony project. We went over to the “Buckingham Commons” on sixth street. It’s an apartment complex that some of our friends live in.
One of the women from the choir, Joy Macke, is a makeup artist, and she did makeup for some of the residents from the Unison project. (It’s name has changed, but I don’t have it straight in my mind). There was another lady who did magical things with hair, and another taking pictures of all of us.
It’s amazing what a little makeup and hair brush ups can do for people. They just glow and look like movie stars.
We all ate pizza, salad, pop and just talked.
Since Harmony Project is about giving to each other, we appropriately sang “Lean on Me” which is going to be in our May 18 and 19 concert. I can’t describe the good feelings that were going on in that room. It only took singing together, and really feeling it.
Tomorrow, we’re going to raise money to try to plant some trees on Livingston Avenue. Later on, we’re going to paint a mural. There are so many projects going on, I can’t keep track of them.
I am so glad “The Harmony Project came into my life.” It’s amazing what you can get out of connecting with people, singing, and just doing little things to contribute.
I’d feel lost without this wonderful organization.
