I met in person Joan today who I met through our blogs and I met her sister Susan.
It seems that her sister knows someone I know who may have influenced Joan in her choice of work.
Is it a small world? You bet.
Is there a reason you read my blog? There is probably a connection we haven't discovered yet.
We went to see the opera Lucia di Lammermoor with Natalie Dessay and Giuseppe Filianoti. Okay, I am drunk. If you could watch three such tragic deaths and then deal with SF traffic down Van Ness and across the Golden Gate Bridge, and not open an incredible bottle of Zinfandel, then I give you credit. I have no pride as to how I feel right now, how drug through love, passion, clans, blood, and roses. Oh, my!!
I am not a robot. Repeat, and you are not a robot, and we are flung here and there and everywhere on love.
I don't want to be a robot. I accept the absolute nuts-it-is to be a human. I love passion and love.
I will attend a wedding, I will be part of, I am reading in a wedding this week of my-our beloved son Chris.
Am I emotional? You bet!! Do I love life? Yes!! Do I wish I understood the pain and pleasure that passion engender? Yes!
Would I change a thing in this silly world we inhabit? In this moment, probably not. My first son is married to Jan, most sweet. My second son will marry Frieda this week. Oh, I can't even speak of it, and to see an opera like this one today. I have wings that open and close in the honoring of the sweetness of this in and out, the ever-changing tides.
I love my sons and all that they bring me.
Great love and care to us all. We are intertwined!!
