So there I was---lying in bed---maybe 15 minutes ago?
Listening to the music of the night...
But I cannot sleep, so here I am.
"Turn your face away from the garish light of day,
turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light...
and listen to the music of the night.
Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams,
purge your thoughts of the life you knew before.
Close your eyes...let your spirit start to soar...
And you'll live, as you've never lived before."
I went to an opera tonight, and although aimed for smaller audiences (Cinderella), I enjoyed myself thoroughly.
"Let your mind start a journey to a strange, new world,
Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before.
Let your soul take you where you long to be!!!
Only then...can you belong to me..."
I am. Sad. and Confused.
But. Full. Of. Hope. For. The. Future.
tomorrow i must awaken early and volunteer at the children's museum---but THEN
i get to visit a professional opera instructor for a consultation---which is very exciting!
"Help me make the music of the night..."
