I just read that Beverly Sills is gravely ill. I didn’t know she had cancer earlier in her life, nor did I know she had it now.

Here she is 50. I am 50. I can’t sing. She can. Here she is in Traviata. This is fun, and this is mad. Danny Kaye and Beverly Sills. Una Voce Poco Fa. This says it’s her final performance, and this says she is age 7.

Dan, Jameson and I went to Der Rosenkavalier last night. When music is so wonderful time doesn’t mean anything any more, I guess. I was mesmerized. (Confession time: I’ve never heard all of DR before. Sad, but true.) What an incredible opera … I’m so glad we were able to go! I know I can’t come close to describing it all.

So I won’t.
