MY DAY: An hour of opera

I spent all morning, and early afternoon in bed, actually resting, and napping.

Sadly, I do not feel refreshed, or less ‘blah.’  The sinus pressure still nags at me, and the congestion comes, and goes.

I did move the stereo (tuner, dual-tape deck, 5-CD changer) I purchased in 1993 into my study.  I have the regular speakers, and two surround-sound speakers, so the study seems to float evenly with music from all corners.

Since some of my high school and college students are attending/performing at OMEA (Ohio Music Educators Association), I had some additional time to sit at my desk, and listen to a collection of opera classics.  I love many arias from opera, and it is exciting to see the students invest an interest in them, and regular classics, as well.

So, here I sit at my desk, Renee Fleming, who sang The National Anthem at last Sunday’s Super Bowl game, is serenading me, the large fluffy snow flakes are falling outside, and three pooches seem calmed by the lovely sounds floating through the room.

‘Tis good for my soul to enjoy moments such as this.  I hope to do this, more often, and on a consistent schedule.
