i've seen it
3 times.



paris
new york
san francisco



and i'll
go again
and again




the met opera
put on an absolutely
astounding show
last night.



my eyes
welled up
with tears.




and the set design
was the finest
i've seen.






ps:
maria callas
will make your
knees buckle


si, mi
chiamono mimi

min 2:31


"I live alone, quite alone.

There is a little white room
I look upon the roofs and the sky.
But when the thaw comes
The first sunshine is mine
The first kiss of
April is mine!

I saw it for the first time at the Met last fall, and I don't know if I've been through that much emotional trauma since. My friend told me when it was finished that my puffy, bloodshot face looked like I'd just been to a wake.
