#LoveWins

 This was my parent's wedding song.





This post is dedicated to all those couples who have been given the right to spend their lives with the ones they love. My 78 year old Republican mother, who passed away recently, supported gay marriage and would say to me, that she was allowed to spend her life with the love of her life, and she believed everyone was entitled to that.



Congratulations and may you know the happiness and love that my parents had for one another in their 53 years together.

Mazel tov.

It's about damn time.

Tosca performed at Masada

Last year the Israeli Opera performed Carmen. This year they chose Tosca.

As I have mentioned before, the joyful act of singing and being alive, transposed upon the background of Masada, a symbol of such death and destruction from 2000 years ago, is in itself a marvelous piece of art. Now throw in Puccini and you really have something.






 Go HERE for a virtual tour of Masada.
