Hi all! Day two of my blog. This is surreal--I have never before face-booked, my-spaced, twittered(though I've just heard twittering is already down 7%--so last year), blogged, or otherwise surfed the webosphere. Where have I been all my life? You're about to find out. Where are my quills? I must write a note. Only now I will post it for all of you in the ether...Does anyone else feel like this? I just heard about a great invention where you can actually speak to people, live, in person, in the moment, on something called a telephone.

Today, I received a great invitation from my divine diva friend and the power behind the Diva Toolbox website--Janet Powers-- who has extended an invitation to the Boa Ball for Sister to Sister which fights heart disease! For more info go to: Thank you Janet!

L ast night I saw the Boston Lyric Opera's production of Bizet's CARMEN. Sexy. Dramatic. Unusually moody staging and classic sets, up-ended in a postmodern way. I thought Dana Beth Miller as the temptress Carmen was beautiful in that luscious, voluptuous way, and her voice (she used to be a soprano) has deepened into the rich timbres of a full-bodied mezzo. Check it out at the gorgeous Shubert Theatre with the Boston Pops Keith Lockhart conducting us through Bizet's labyrinthine spiral of sex and death, and the fear of all things unruly like vagabond  gypsies. Through November 17. For more info
