My friends out there in the blogosphere, allow me, on this Christmas Eve, to post this as a tribute to my wife Susan who died four days before last Christmas.
She loved opera and especially this aria from Puccini’s Turandot, Nessun Dorma.
When Pavarotti holds that last high note of “Vincero!” (I will win!) at the end of the aria, tears came to her eyes and her soul soared.
And I reach out to her soul now, wherever it is.
