…off to Assyria for a while
[clip with thanks to 25venta]
Due to work, I’ll be spending the next 2 1/2 weeks cordoned off from the outside world and the internet (*gasp*) on a “dig” of sorts in “Assyria” to hopefully speed up matter on said assignment. In case of doubt, I’ll simply call upon Mel and Janice…
To make a proper operatic exit, I’m leaving you with the Queen of White Shirt Country herself – is she on our flag, actually? – while I’m out (I’m sure you won’t miss me). Here’s Vesselina Kasarova with Prince Arsace’s famous entry cavatina “Ah, quel giorno” from Rossini’s “Semiramide” from the Vienna Concert with Kammerorchester Basel back in February 2010.
I’ll be back Monday, Oct. 4th, just in time for a new White Shirt Monday and to start planning the next Friday Night Conversation.
Be well and be safe, all of you!
