Truth is Black

Chasing truth

is difficult

when it’s wearing

a hat 3 sizes

too big

for it’s head —

hiding its eyes

from the onlooker,

dancing in shadows

it knows no better

while we go on

searching

under street lights.

Phantom of the Opera

Last night I saw Phantom of the Opera with a friend, front row, all the way on the right. She won the tickets in the Broadway Lottery in New York for less than a third of the price.

This is what I learned from the show:

  1. Be patient.  Be aware.  Be kind.
  2. Love the light and the dark in you.
  3. All experiences teach you something.

Without going into more detail, I’ll just say that I found the play to be highly symbolic of an experience in my own life.  I feel like it can speak to parts of everyone’s life, naturally. It is a classic for a reason.  Thank you, Broadway.
