not a fan of Wagner
I know it's almost heresy to admit this but I am not a fan of Wagner. Therefore, I will probably not listen to the opera tomorrow, Götterdämmerung, even with Deborah Voigt as Brünnhilde. Yes, there is some glorious music but everything in between is too tiresome, and it is 6 hours long. Next week's offering, Il Barbiere di Siviglia is more my style. I will still have my "opera salad" ~ shrimp saved from my Friday night special at Dago's ~ but will cut my listening time short to either play dominoes or read. It's been raining here since midnight last night so we didn't go down to Dago's. Had take-out instead and enjoyed our dinner at home. It's supposed to be rainy and cool for the next few days with occasional thunderstorms. So far it's been a gentle, steady drizzle. I love the sound of the rain in the palm trees outside our bedroom windows. Almost as soothing as the surf.
I am feeling somewhat better today. Good night's sleep, not too much coughing. Better tomorrow.
