~ The Power Of Letting Go ~

Without any feet to stand on my mind disappears, I’m free falling in love. And so it is with your poetry, glory be thy heart. ♥ Twin flames supernova only to re-emerge in time, but true love is forever timeless, only hot moist bliss. ♥

Your heart is not open so I must go
The spell has been broken, I loved you so
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no

You were my lesson I had to learn
I was your fortress you had to burn
Pain is a warning that somethings wrong
I pray to God that it wont be long
Do ya wanna go higher?

There’s nothing left to try
There’s no place left to hide
There’s no greater power
Than the power of good-bye…

I let you go today

To find myself tomorrow

Allow you space and time

To find yourself as well

~

I let you go to know

I only had you borrowed

And won’t intend to keep you

Outside your lonely shell

~

In mystical realm

We are one soul or flickers

Which means whatever far

We’ll never be apart

~

On current human plane

We are two sets of issues

That have to be worked out

Before we can unite

~

I let you run today

Because you make me weaker

And safety of your arms

Is calling me to dwell

~

You’d love to have me stay

But you are here to teach me

I must rely on no one

And only on myself

~

I let you go today

Because your heart is fastened

And sharing how you feel

Stirs up your ancient pains

~

It hurts…

♪Lucia di Lammermoor

I was fortunate to attend a most enchanting opera: Lucia di Lammermoor by composer Gaetano Donizetti. It was performed by a very talented theatre troupe from The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.

Although I don’t speak Italian, I did appreciate the dramatic delivery, the evocatively raw emotional scenes held me spellbound, grasping ever so tightly onto my chair, totally enthralled by the whole experience. Nothing quite compares to the energy of live opera! Here’s a popular clip from Utube:

Natalie Dessay – Lucia di Lammermoor: Eccola…Il dolce suono – LIVE at the Met 2007

One of the most compelling arias  taken from Act III,  scene 2 – Il Dolce Suono, “the sweet sound” – also commonly known as the “mad scene” sung by the leading soprano, Lucia.

The leading soprano, Casey Davenport’s portrayal of Lucia is just heavenly. The depth of her madness is simply transcendent and total. As the story goes, Lucia falls mad after being forced to forsake her true love Edgardo, after which her family arranged her marriage to a guy she didn’t care for.  On her wedding night, while the festivities are still being held in the Great Hall, she stabs her new husband, Arturo, in the bridal chamber. Disheveled, unaware of what she has done, she wanders in the Great Hall, recalling her meetings with Edgardo and imagining herself married to him. The whole melody of this recitative is chillingly morose and haunting. I especially enjoyed Casey’s interpretation of this piece, making us understand her character’s plight, her fear and mental foibles.

The whole cast was absolutely stunning, as was the staging, costumes and lighting.  In the end, it was Ms. Davenport’s lyrically nimble  coloratura soprano that captivated the audience, making this a very successful production.  ❤ Continue reading
