Broadening My Scope

I know I shouldn't feel this way, but some days I feel the lack of a broader scope in my life. I spend so much time writing that I know I am not going out into the world as much as I used to.

A friend sent me this link of a flashmob in NZ. Opera flashmob.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLDJ2nMpwo8&feature=youtu.be

Can you imagine knowing the words to a piece of opera well enough to go out in public and sing it? I must remember, I can join a group and sing The Hallelujah Chorus (if I can sneak the music in my sleeve).

I've loved opera forever and was blessed many years ago with a friend who shared her season tickets when she couldn't make it. My youngest son would accompany me and we had such a glorious time. He remembers it to this day - fondly. 

There is too much out there - in the wide world. I would have it all.

Life is abundant.

PS - I did get to write more of the Midpoint chapters. I've got two and a half done. Drat - I swore this part would only be three chapters long and I've only gotten the hero/heroine to the first of three balls!

  1. So many wonderful opportunities. Priorities have to be set, and it's all right to juggle those priorities from time to time. How wonderful that you and your son share that memory with smiles.
