Off topic--wish me luck!

Hey guys,
A while back I wrote about an audtition:

"This is not related to knitting at all, but I wanted to get all the good wishes I could headed my if you'd be so kind, send some good thoughts/ prayers/ offerings/ tonglen/ whatever you're inclined to send my way that I give the best audition I can...

Thanks and I'll keep you posted on what happens!"

MMario reminded me that I hadn't updated you on what happened. Your thought were definitely with me that day: I gave a great audition. They liked it, I liked it. I was proud of what I'd done. Unfortunately someone else was "more what they were looking for" which was totally out of my control. So, the short answer is: I didn't get the part. BUT, they are keeping me in the file and the were very complimentary of me and my work. Short of the part, it's about all I can ask.

Thanks for your good wishes and I will keep you up to date on my "other" career.

Good luck, I'll keep my fingers crossed. I'll also ask my 4 cats to send good luck purrs!

Indeed! That is perhaps my favorite opera, and certainly my favorite work by Glass. I wish you very much luck, and sure wish that I could be there to attend the performance. Blessings.....

You let go of it, it let go of you.

Break a leg! I have a friend who will (at least the last I heard) be performing opera in europe this summer.

Do you know where?

Last word was a part in the Magic Flute for a production in Rome sometime this summer - and a tour as Berta in Il Barbiare.

You've run out of legs by now, so break a needle! Good vibes have been dispatched your way.

All the best to you!! You wouldn't happen to know a woman named Melody Parker would you? I believe she does some opera in ATL.

I didn't know there were that many who liked Glass. I have a 10-cd changer in the car and 9 of the discs are Glass (The Photographer, Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, Naqoyqatsi, Anima Mundi, 1000 Airplanes on the Roof, Einstein on the Beach (3 discs)). Best wishes and much success to you!!! Be sure to post when it's scheduled. One of my goals is to see a Glass performance live.

All the best to you hope you get the part, keep us informed of your progress.

Have been knitting for years. I knit continually then will try another craft, but will return to the needles.

I spit over your shoulder three times: "touy-touy-touy". Let us know how it went.
