I attended the opera, Turandot, with two of my girlfriends last night. I was spellbound! It was so rich and beautiful and the voices carried me away to a story about love. The voices in some respects intoxicated me! I particularly loved Ping Pong and Pang…and their revelations about the small homes that they had by rivers….or in the hills. They were basically pondering, “What the hell are we doing here? in this palace? Are we really content?”
The greatest lesson of the opera for me was this; “The way to be glorified is to awaken to the magic of the moment…to be aware that you are fully alive!” These are words that I have lived by for quite some time. It is never too late to wake to a new beginning!
