I love that Bernstein is willing to take a nap onstage.

The silence is more dramatic and unresolved than the "Tristan chord" itself.

Nuthatch
by Kirsten Dierking
What if a sleek, grey-feathered nuthatch
flew from a tree and offered to perch
on your left shoulder, accompany you

on all your journeys? Nowhere fancy,
just the brief everyday walks, from garage
to house, from house to mailbox, from
the store to your car in the parking lot.

The slight pressure of small claws
clasping your skin, a flutter of wings
every so often at the edge of vision.

And what if he never asked you to be
anything? Wouldn't that be so much
nicer than being alone? So much easier
than trying to think of something to say?

LMAO watching "To Rome with Love".

It got terrible reviews, but it is cracking me up.  Putting a shower on stage because everyone sings better in the shower?  Hilarious. Throw in some intellectual pretension.  A little of today's hero worship of people with no talent.  Some pretty good opera singing, and scenes of Italy thrown in as well.  What's not to like?
