PERSONAL BLOG.

People call me various things. Teela, Teelar, Tee-tee, Teelch, Tuula, that Chick, Her, Choir Mommy.

Choir and opera person (lyric soprano with the possibility of extending into a coloratura?). History person (especially the American Revolution and the Civil War). I also like Greek Mythology. Various other things shall appear.

If there is something on my blog that triggers you and I do not tag it, PLEASE send me an ask to tell me what it is. You can be anonymous, or not. Whatever is comfy for you.

My ask is always open.

Have some cookies and tea and a blanket for your stay.

What do you think defines a relationship?

All participants agreeing that they are in a relationship, whether romantic or platonic.
I would hope for affection, especially physical, but some people are not upset comfy with physical affection (and that’s super okay)

What's your favorite outfit to wear?

My polka-dot top with my black circle skirt and shrug- I feel super petite and cute in it, and it hugs all the right curves on my body. I’ll post a selfie with it the next time I wear it :3

If you were a song, what song would you be?

Either something like All About that Bass because music puns and fun, or Lily’s Eyes because complicated music and (sometimes I feel) beautiful.
(seriously, Lily’s Eyes makes me cry seven out of ten times)

Song: “How Could I Ever Know?”

Album: ~The Secret Garden~ Musical

Artist: Mandy Patinkin & Rebecca Luker

Origin: The Secret Garden Broadway Show

DAY 6 OF “Love For All Sweet Music” MONTH!
I can’t use this darn song for auditions anymore because I keep tearing up when the chords play. Same with “Poor Sweet Baby” and “Your Daddy’s Son.” If you know who Mandy Patinkin is, then you’ll know how lovely his voice is. Inigo Montoya, 88 Keys, Sunday In The Park With George … what a great voice.

Well, knowledge is a fine thing, and mother Eve thought so; but she smarted so severely for hers, that most of her daughters have been afraid of it since.

there’s a Sumner high school in St Louis where an honors music program was started and a lot of fantastic StL musicians went
my grandparents are pretty sure it was named after Charles Sumner

Today I learned that a composer named Erwin Schulhoff wrote a completely tacet piece as the third movement of his “Fünf Pittoresken" for piano. His piece pre-dates John Cage’s 4’33” by 30 years, and is actually much more suggestive as to how the silence should be shaped, containing really complex rhythmic rests and lines to the rests. His successful career was cut short due to the Rise of the Nazi Regime in Germany and their strict rules on music, and because of this, his pieces are very rarely played or referenced to.
