The Opera


Classic 3, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

We tried to go to the opera yesterday in Central City Co., but it was sold out...too bad...but we did try. Central City was a total surprise...it is an old mining town that apparently used to be the capital city of Colorado. The funny thing was that it made me feel like I was in a Swiss village or some village in Europe that has tiny streets and old buildings. Of course you would have to get rid of the casinos and the fat smoking americans first...is that mean? no...i don't think so. just true. It was a cute spot and damn if i didn't have my camera with me. I need to go back and take pictures so I can share the sights. The day was beautiful yesterday. 91 degrees and perfectly sunny up in the mountains while driving on roads we had never been on. I love doing that...having an adventure in the car with music and no particular plan, which is what ended up happening on the way home...we didn't know what to do so we drove some more, and then took a nap in the middle of the day....

A nap in the middle of the day. Now that could be a book title...or a secret to success...I think taking a nap everyday is the reason kids are so damn full of love and energy and life. Somewhere along the way, we adults lost that privilege along with other things like, recess, sleep-overs, taco night, trips to the zoo, and make believe. So I say, lets bring back the adult versions of these things and just take naps, and schedule recess, and eat tacos on Tuesdays, and go to the zoo and play make believe and go to the opera. And even if they don't let you in, you can still go take a nap.

Today is Monday and the sun is shining and I have to finish my coffee before recess.

Love and Understanding
