..and I've got a lot of things I wanna say.
And if I'm gloomy, please, won't you listen to me
till it's all, all talked away.
Well, that's how it goes,
And Joe, I know, you're getting anxious to close.
So thanks for the cheer,
I hope you didn't mind
my bending your ear...
CollegeGrrrl has come home and gone already. Came for the ballet on Saturday--the Distracted Grrrls have a subscription this year for three seats in the nose bleed section. The ushers are very nice and usually let us slip down to unoccupied seats closer to the stage. Yesterday's performance was touted for The Sinatra Suite which was quite nice. It's Old Blue Eyes, can't go wrong there. However, it was two other performances that blew me away, La Belle Danse choreographed by Jessica Lang and World Citizen, choreography by Devon Carney. Those two dances were spirit-lifting, transcending. If you hear of either ballet coming to your hometown go and see them.
This morning, I've just returned from Pilates, taken my Advil, and am waiting for CollegeGrrl's call to let me know she's arrived safely. HoneyHaired is finishing her required reading about Hester Prynne and that terrible sorrow of a life and we're trying very hard not to laugh at our silly dog barking in his sleep. If she can finish a bit more of the book there may be time for us to push out from under the heavy leaden sky pressing down on our eyeballs. Perhaps a pizza in our future as a just reward.
