There may still be Sunday somewhere on this rotating globulus … and while we are looking at time and things gone by, it is the right occasion for an addendum to the Game of Fours : Melanie answered in the comments, MsScarlet answered here. Interestingly our feline overlords felt the need to participate too, see Lola & Nikko here, Geiger & Sporran there.
If I forgot to mention someone, please accept my excuse.
Over the last days I felt pretty blue. Maybe it is the season – I am really in no “festive” mood, and doubt that I will reach this state of mind this year ; maybe it is age, the outlook … the endless fog surely did not help to brighten my mood ; also limping along like the hunchback of Notredame was not very encouraging, where’Smeralda ? I vaguely remember that a goat was also involved, but I may muddle this with a gargoyle.
What helps is to do, and thankfully this morning I swept together the remnants of my glorious willpower and started to actually do something. I even have a “to do”-list. It is short and reads like “dishes, bedclothes, letter to …”, but it’s effective. And terribly rewarding, because I did the dishes, started the washing machine, and even made some copies I need for the letter. This is more than I accomplished over the last week that I frankly spent most of the time in bed, when not driving of course. The level of self-pity was steadily rising, but I think it is drained now.
This Sunday Music is the air of la Folie, madness, who comes here in the form and voice of Sabine DEVIEILHE (Ger., Fr.), accompanied by the orchestra of the Opéra Royal de Versailles (Ger., Eng., website), a divertissement in the second act of RAMEAUs lyrical opera Platée (Ger., Eng.), Plataea or the jealous Juno. This rehearsal went pretty well, I hope their performance was a like, and no one forgot the text …
I hope you enjoy the music, and that we all have a productive and stress-free week ahead !
