I think we all know that the days of sitting outside in the sun all day are numbered, at least for this New England girl. I usually get some pretty rotten seasonal depression.

What’s that you’re asking about tuning? Are you curious if I’m going to sing in tune two weekends from now when I cantor Boston College’s 150th anniversary mass at Fenway in front of 20,000 people? I think I will. At least I’ll try.

I’m still plowing through the book Thirty Days. I’m a fast reader, but these days I am not a frequent reader. Maybe all those months of reading Rahner for school have traumatized me.

Today is the last day to help Boston Opera Collaborative Fund the Future. Getting to the end of one of these campaigns is like reaching the end of a marathon. We’re all proud of our achievements but glad that it’s done!

I take holidays very seriously, and I take the holiday at the end of summer more seriously than most. I will be observing days of rest very intentionally this weekend. I hope you do as well!
