Journal

I’m journaling this sabbatical.

From Wednesday:

That boat ride into the horseshoe of the Canadian falls certainly ranks as one of the top ten experiences of my life.


Could I name ten?

  • Standing on the Great Wall of China
  • The boat in the horseshoe of the Canadian Niagara Falls
  • Ozawa conducting the War Requiem in Boston, with Bostridge and Quasthoff as soloists
  • My first visit to the Lincoln Memorial
  • Singing Herbert Howells’ music at Westminster Abbey, just feet from his grave
  • Cantering Evensong at Ely Cathedral
  • Seeing Les Miserables the first time
  • The Parthenon in Athens, the second time I visited
  • That one-and-only visit to the Three Choirs Festival
  • Singing Britten’s Peter Grimes at Carnegie Hall on Britten’s 100th birthday

Are there ten more? You bet!

But that’s another blog entry.
