Anna Karenina was reviewed in The Independent. Unfortunately the only way to read it is to visit the archives for 9/16/10 and get the pdf there. Fortunately it was a very nice review,

A blogger also gives his thoughts on the opera. I especially enjoy blogger reviews. Professional reviewers, after all, get in for free. (Funny how I have to let readers know if I’m reviewing something I received for free. Newspaper reviewers never have to tell us that. I don’t quite understand why the FTC makes us announce our freebies since professional newspaper reviewers never have to announce it. Call me stupid.)

Today has been, so far anyway, a total loss. I’ve been hit with the “wearies” and can’t manage to get moving. I did manage to vacuum the family room, but that was it. Soon I teach three students and then it’s off to Symphony Silicon Valley with me for our first rehearsal of the season. Yep! More work! My last day of no work at all was September 10. No wonder I’m a bit tired! I just checked my calendar. I don’t have a full day off until October 10. That’s one full month of some sort of work every single day … wow … I didn’t realize this until just now.

I think I’m in need of a nap!
