Quiet

Thanks, everybody, for your congratulations and good wishes! But before anybody plans a cross-country trip, keep in mind that I’m really only going to be onstage for five minutes! Maybe ten. I would love to have anybody and everybody come to NYC, of course, but I’d also want you to save your pennies for a few seasons from now, when I’m (hopefully) singing something more substantial. Something with a name!

Of course, the opera would only be the excuse for all the other fun we would have on your visit – eating, drinking, talking, shopping, staying up all night at the Duplex… Ok, book that ticket! =]

I’m off this weekend on a different sort of trip. I’m going away by myself to be quiet for a few days. No music, no people, no phone or internet. Just me, a little cabin, the ocean, and quiet. I haven’t had much of that these days, and it’s starting to take its toll. I’m taking a few books and movies, but I’m hoping to spend a lot of time just doing “nothing.” Maybe some writing, maybe some meditating, but only with the purpose of clearing out my head. It is noisy in there…

Wishing you all a peaceful, quiet weekend…

Please be quiet and meditative for me, too. It's another 22 hour weekend in concert land over here.

But exciting news for both of us Tuesday! The last season of Six Feet Under comes out on DVD!

Belated congratulations as I return to the blogosphere from my own vacation...

And the size of the role isn't so important. You've officially moved up to be a small fish in a bigger pond. There's lots to learn in that position - and best of all, lots of room to grow. I get to do the same thing this year, albeit in a much smaller house. Small fishes at the Met eat small fishes at Central City for breakfast! :)

Seriously though, congratulations, and I'm sure you're looking forward to the exciting experience.

First- congrats on the Met! I am so happy for you and proud of you!

AND- congrats on the quiet weekend- equally desearved! I am jealous. We all need that time and never take it.
