Two days ago, for no apparent reason, I was struck by the sudden and strong urge to see the opera. I really can't say what brought this about. I've never been to one but have decided that I will definitely will once the season opens. I know everything is more casual these days, but I do love dressing up, so this will be a great excuse. My special personal project--one of them, anyway--for the next couple months will be to put together a fancy opera-seein' getup. Hehe. But until then...enjoy this treasury!
