I wish I’d just come back from an adventure! The truth is I’ve kept myself a little busy with work and other obligations…as well as some mismanagement of my time. There’s always room for improvement. For the first time, today, I genuinely felt like we’ve come out of the pandemic (I know it’s still out there). I went to a concert at my beloved Walt Disney Concert Hall, and masks were finally optional. Disney Hall and LA Opera may have been the last two places on Earth requiring masking while indoors. I am truly thankful for the protection masks have afforded me these past two and a half years, but I was ready to move on. It felt wonderful to finally be able to be inside Disney Hall without a mask. The last time I was at an indoor performance sans mask was in early 2020. Shortly after that concert…well, the whole world knows the rest. It was a wonderful experience, not just because of the mask but because of today’s program. I’ll leave that for another post.
