Opera


Pam loved opera. I don't sing opera anymore. But here I am singing Puccini in 2003. I know Pam would want me to still be singing opera but I don't because it makes me cry. A year ago Ron happened upon a madrigal group on Craigslist and he forced me to join. Thank God he did, it brings me such joy to sing with them. I'm sure it was Pam who brought it really.

I love how I sound here..... and it makes me cry..

  1. Your singing must never stop, when you are blessed with such a gift you must let others enjoy it.

  9. in new england, we say funny for odd, too. in fact, there's even an (embarrassing) comment that some people in massachusetts (where i grew up, or tried to grow up) often say: "do you mean funny-peculiar or funny ha-ha?"
    as i said, embarrassingly inane.

    i have a mac. maybe that's why i cant hear you sing. but i've heard you on other posts, and i love your singing...

  15. OMG! Now I'm crying. Really. This is astounding, Jane. I kept trying to make it louder.

    What can we do to encourage you to sing opera again? Your talents never cease, my dear! xoxo.
