… but I’m too old. Sigh. And maybe not good enough anyway. Young hotshot musicians … they can be pretty darn amazing! But anyway, Lorin Maazel has this very cool place and he is putting on Britten’s Turn of the Screw this summer with young musicians. Read about it here.

Doesn’t it sound great? I think so!

Sidokus … I heard about these from Divertimenti. Like a musical sudoku. Cool. I did the sudoku thing for a very short time, but numbers … well … numbers and I aren’t always best pals. Still, I might give this a go. At some point. Time will tell.

Oh … and I said I’d comment on the Spike Lee quote. I don’t want to say he’s entirely wrong. It IS fun to go to work. Sometimes. But it is work. And there are times when it is a job. A very difficult job. Some people think that those of us in the arts are only playing around. But honestly, our jobs run the gamut. It’s just that the exquisitely wonderful times are so … hmm … how to say it? … just so fulfilling and incredible. Other times? Well, sometimes I can’t wait to get home and have my bowl of Cheerios.

And now I’m hungry for a bowl right now. Guess that’ll be my dessert for tonight. :-)
