Wait, What’s Today?

You know, I’m pretty sure when the universe gave me the Your Next Life forms I checked off “the easy life.”  Yeah, I totally did. Alright, alright, I do have an easy life.  (I’m writing an article about reincarnation.)

I bring this up because we’re about to start working on the second half of the Credo in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis.  I just listened to it and I’m pretty sure these vocal gymnastics are physically impossible.  I think I’m listening to robots singing.  In Beethoven’s time he must have enlisted aliens.  

Oh Beethoven, who do you hate us so??  Actually, I can’t wait for the day when I can do this.  I not kidding about my fear, I wonder if I can do this, but I really hope I can. It’s glorious.

This is the building next door to mine.  Isn’t this a pretty little building?  I wonder what it looks like inside.  It has this nice little pathway on the left as you can see, which goes back to a courtyard. Maybe that was for horses back in the day.
