Thank you!! And the Soundtrack for Heaven

April 7th, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

I was so excited to see new reviews for my book on Amazon and Barnes & Noble this morning. Thank you!!  I really appreciate it!!  You guys are the best!!

This picture is of Sir John Tavener, a British composer I love.  The Rubin Museum is premiering a new work of his on April 23rd and I’m trying to decide if I can afford it.  Information and tickets are available here. It’s stupid.  It’s a wonderful opportunity.  I should just go. Here’s what a critic said of his music.

“If you had to pick the soundtrack for heaven, the music of Sir John Tavener would probably feature prominently.” — Aidan Goldstraw, Express and Star.

He’s also known for a piece that was sung at Princess Diana’s funeral called Song for Athene.  And he did music for the movie Children of Men.

It’s $95 for priority seating and a discussion beforehand with the composer, or $40 for the concert only.  Damnit.  What to do, what to do??

    JUST GO! Afterward, will you think “I wish I hadn’t gone”? NO! Alternatively, would you think, “I wish I HAD gone”? YES! There you go. Logic, KayO style. We could take up a collection, if it will help. (I would TOTALLY go for the discussion w/composer. He might say something that changes your world view.)

    You’re right. I’m insane not to go.
