Madama Butterfly live from the Met got me through a day of heavy lifting and clean-up - after my redundant morning work-out. Shlepping my in-law's stuff as they move to an independent living home, and making space for stuff we or our kids can use. Good new beds and never-used mattresses, etc.
This is one reason I donate to WQXR - to keep the good stuff coming. It's the tunes. I have an FM antenna high on the top of the roof, but they do online too. Computer speakers are terrible.
We visited his house in the olde walled town of Lucca, and the church where he learned music. Pilgrimage to a pop star.
Off topic - my best peach tree bloomed today, and we have snow and windstorms tonight. Damn that pesky Climate Change. Meanwhile, ye olde HQ is filled with the pungent smell of garlic, onion, oil, oregano, and capers. Bottle the smell of that sauce for sole. Or soul.
