Life begins at...

Take heart. Everyone in this picture, except one, is well over 50. And we are as silly as ever.

A few faithful friends trooped down to Toulouse to see Handspring's riveting production of the Monteverdi opera, Il Ritorno d'Ulisse. After the show, we crossed town to down oysters at Antoine's restaurant. Oysters had all been consumed, but nevertheless Antoine uncorked a few bottles of wine and threw together a veritable feast. He also bolted the doors and refused to release us until 3:30 am.

Here is the review of the Venice production of the opera from the International Herald Tribune.

I needed this gorgeous post today. It's not many years until I am fifty. The kids will be grown. Maybe that's when we get to fulfill some of the dreams.
