Response to H2O Man (Reply #3)

7. At times like this I listen to opera.

All the death and mayhem. Wagner's Ring always shows how bad it can get. Then, there's Tosca, where nobody survives. Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro shows how good things can turn out and how important love is. (One simultaneously laughs and cries.) One of my faves is Philip Glass's Satyagraha which satisfies both my musical and political senses. All these with wonderful music, which to me is itself a transforming experience. I even occasionally tread into Alban Berg's somewhat twisted operatic visions. It's all good.

We all have our own paths. Bearing witness with a suitable amount of passion is what matters. That can change the world. (One can only hope.)
