 despite the cold weather and all of the winter woes therein, i always manage to find myself standing in awe in front of beautifully angular, symmetrical beguiling, and lovingly designed architectural structures. 
 the cold does nothing to hinder the drive of exploration. 
 fires in your soul warm the body.

 gilded arcs slice through the elevated ceilings of the theatre. 
 thin cables paralleled electrified wires leading down from the top to an explosion of  crystalline satellites . 
 as the lights in the house dim, the murmurs blend into hushed whispers and crinkling papers. 
 the orbiting chandeliers recess and lift skyward. the orchestra furiously sweeps into a luscious introduction, and the thick heavy red velvet curtains slowly rise above the stage floor. 
 everything is amazing and i take my first breath.

 endless circles of doubt, despair, reticence, procrastination, and anxious frustration. and for what? what is all the worry about? 
 just loops and circles and heads biting tails biting heads, hands wringing, eyes rolling, bellows, cries, the eerie calm of silence in the streets. 
 you’re going nowhere fast, and yet time is fleeting. spend less time giving a shit, and get to it. do it! 
 note to self note to self note to self.

 watching  l’elisir d’amore  with moms who is visiting. 
 hushed whispers in the velvet & gilded opera house. all eyes sparkle in the shadows, and you can hear the murmur of the orchestra tune and whine. 
 such a palace of nostalgia, a touchstone for beauty, vocal dynamism, love explored, comedic passages, aching, pining, passions flared, humble faces shied from true feelings. it harbors them all. 
 dark desires and lilting promises made at the height of amorous confession. if these tales and performances of them do not leave you with a state of romantic despair or blissful hope, i’m not sure we will ever understand one another. 
 but i’m willing to give it a go if you are.
