Feeling better!

Posted by PaulKirby on Saturday, September 20, 2008

It's so great to hear a kind word from friends at the hangout. Thanks. 

I woke up this morning pretty much without pain. The antibiotics seem to be working!

I'm singing a short concert at the American Church in Oslo today; my wife and I are doing Ten Blake Songs of Ralph Vaughan-Williams, and then I have to take a taxi to the opera house to get in costume for the opening night of Don Carlo at the Norwegian Opera. Pretty exciting, our first show in the new house. 

I am almost embarrassed about how much protection I have in case of illness on my job. I freelanced in the opera\concert world for about 20 years, and there if you're sick, you're up the creek.  I still even get my performance fee if I'm ill. I just love my job and I wanted to be there for this historic evening.

Thanks again for the friendly posts. Life is short; good health and freedom from pain are truly blessings.

Hey, YOU can't have too much protection.  You must watch out for your primary instrument. 

Glad you're on the mend.

I am really pleased for you.  I spent a year in bed becase of my hearing and there is nothing better than getting out there and getting involved in life.

Hey! Yeah, people say the same thing about being a tenor: 'lucky you don't need your ears anyway'.

Great! I haven't seen any reviews, but I know the audience seemed pretty awed. Thanks!
