Since my last post, I have…been offered an opera role in a summer program, discussed the possibility of teaching a course at a university and another two at local community colleges, and been considered for a conductor’s position in Tanzania for a recorded new composition. (I am noting the irony that I mentioned Tanzania in my last post.) Holy cannoli! My last post was on March 15th, and it is now March 31st. In the immortal words of the Stones, “Time is on my sIde.”
So the question of the day is, “Have you ever considered the power of time?” One moment, I’m ready to forsake opera entirely due to the ongoing rejections and lack of audition responses. The next moment, I am offered a choice role. Similarly, one minute, I am considering going back to school for yet another degree, but the next minute, I am asked to teach those very classes.
I am amazed by people and life everyday. I am also astounded by the connections made in the past that continually resurface. Karma is not simply a spiritual or religious concept; it is the real, day-to-day, reaping-what-you-sow. Did you work hard? You’re typically prepared. Are you friendly and helpful? Someone will pick you up when you need it.
Listen, this blog is simply someone rambling about life, but I hope it inspires you to think about what’s important and every person, experience, and moment that shapes who you are and how you fit in the world. My challenge to you is to ask yourself whether two weeks could change your life? You might be surprised.
