Oscar Night!

I’m back from swimming, and I’m still trying to get COLD. Or, at least room temperature. The device that heats the water must have been left on all night. The water in the pool was HOT. The showers were scalding as well. I swam very slowly, hoping to avoid getting over-heated, but here I am, still red as a beet.

Well! On to the Oscars! And the red carpet! And fashion! And, apparently more snow, although I hear perhaps not much. The snow is mostly gone in the city except for ice/blocks/patches and a few ugly mounds of snow like this.

  1. And all the rest of the country is trying to get HOT! We were below zero here again in Wisconsin this morning, ridiculous.
    Enjoy the Oscars. I love them too although for the umpteenth year in a row now I haven’t seen any of the movies either.

  2. Dear Ms. Horn,
    I am in the process of reading your book, Imperfect Harmony, and just finishing “The Last Invocation”. A chorus friend recommended it, and I’m so glad. Each time I read a new chapter I am amazed at all of the connections that they elicit from my own choral experiences.
    I currently sing in two choruses in the Wash. D. C. area: the National Philharmonic Choral and St. Maries Musica.
    I hope to take the opportunity to write back to you some of my thoughts related to your stories. It will be a while yet.
    Also, I believe that you would enjoy listening, on Youtube, to “Crossing the Bar” by Donald McCullough (poem by Tennyson). It’s very special.
    Again, thank you for your wonderful, and uplifting, stories. I am so pleased to be reading your book.

  3. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts, and thank you for your initial positive feedback! You must be a pretty serious singer if you are singing with the National Philharmonic Choral, and I just googled St. Maries Musica and they look like such a delightful group. I’d love to sing more of that music. On my way to find “Crossing the Bar” …

  4. Isn’t it weird that they are still entertaining even when you haven’t seen the nominees?? And below zero, my god. You are going to think I’m such a wuss if you see the picture I posted of myself today, wrapped in a blanket and it’s only in the 20’s.
