"Wagner's operas end long after they are finished." --Stravinsky. And yet I did see the whole Ring in one week at the Met in 1990 and enjoyed it. On the "day off" I went to Lloyd Webber's "Aspects of Love " and when it was over in 2 hours I was like, "Is that ALL?"

Last night my computer reminded me to be grateful to a lot of people most of whom are no longer around. Superimposed on my screensaver, a photo of a beach, was the date, June 6, and the time, 19:44.
