It started off a little sad, with the close of a show that had a quite a story, a lot of emotion, and a very close cast. It was hard to say goodbye to that. I was experiencing some of the typical post-show ennui. I didn't feel like singing, and I told myself, "Self, no problem. Don't practice again til you feel like you want to. It's called taking a break." And guess what. By Wednesday I was practicing again...as the days pass...I'm starting to get my mojo back, I have to admit. I am back to being totally obsessed. Obsessed with singing, singers, opera, song...all of it.
This week's posts included:
- A poem on Wednesday called Opening Night
- yesterday's self-motivational post called Coaching Team You. It was by far the most popular this week.
Tonight Joe and I are off to Lyric Opera Baltimore's Rigoletto-- one of my very favorites. I'll be on pins and needles all through "Caro nome." Otherwise known as the best aria ever! We will be fuleing up first with margaritas and guacamole. And between now and then, of course, I'll have to figure out what spectacular outfit to wear... I'm going back stage after...maybe I'll get to meet Bryan Hymel!
