Over the past couple of days, I have been doing nothing except listening to operas. I long for the day when I am so in love that I feel nothing other than the romance. I wish my life was an opera. Not, you know, the almost inevitable death, but the drama and the romance. The aria that has basically been on repeat for the past few hours is Dido’s Lament by Purcell. I don’t know why I feel so connected to this particular aria, but it’s there. I’m also not sure why I haven’t discovered my love for the opera world before this weekend.
I just want to go to the middle of nowhere and dramatically sing out all of these emotions.
