Thursday - July 5

I was saddened the other day to learn of Beverly Sills' death. During the last year she sang, I had the chance to hear her in concert in Raleigh. I'm sorry to say that I don't have particular memories of what she sang that night, and I don't think there were programs (I believe she announced each selection). But I do remember the concert as being lovely.

Wednesday night I watched Charlie Rose's commemoration of Ms. Sills. In an earlier show (which was largely replayed) he had asked her if she had a favorite moment in performing. She told of one night when she felt that a particularly difficult role had gone extraordinarily well. I know the feeling!

Beverly Sills did much for the music world. May she rest in peace.

I've enjoyed the slightly slower pace of this week. You might not think that someone working from home would be affected by (or even particularly notice) a change of pace, but I am and I do. I didn't do anything special for the holiday; I didn't even do the heavy-duty cleaning that I do some years. I napped and played around online.

And was grateful for the freedom to do both those things.
