Gratitude - Day 66


I'm stumped. I'm completely at a loss for good photos, because every single day here in Chicago, it is FREEZING cold, snowy, slushy and essentially unwalk-able (at least for a singer trying to stay somewhat healthy and warm-ish!) Leaving the theater tonight, it was a bit warmer and snowing in the most beautiful, soft, symphonic way - but I was too busy dodging 4-inch puddles of mush everywhere to take out my camera and capture the fogged in city. So tonight I came home a made a cup of my MOST favorite tea (not plugging here, but how GREAT is this Aveda tea?!?! ), and while the photo may seem uninspired or poorly composed, I was too eager to actually drink it, (and yes, slightly sulky that I am not getting the opportunity to take photos like I did in Barcelona!), that I snapped it, and soaked up the goodness of a hot cup of tea on a cold, blustery evening. It was perfection.

Hello Joyce,
I´ve heard you in Barcelona last January singing La Cenerentola with Juan Diego Flórez.
When the show had finished we stayed waiting for you to sign the libretti for us, and you were so kind after 3 hours of singing that I was quite stunned. It is not usual to find great singers with a great sense of humour...
I just wanted to thank you, and hope to see/hear you soon again.

Kisses.

Pablo - it is always my pleasure, but believe me, you made it easy in Barcelona, because after each performance the public's enthusiasm and energy was so uplifting!

And Rachel - indeed it was, and being serenaded by the entire men's chorus outside my dressing room was an event I'll never forget!!! (Not to mention the chocolate raspberry cake!!! Thank you very much - and for the record, it was a fabulous one!

CHEERS!
