For Brave Auditionees

Yesterday I sat on the panel for two opera auditions: one was for principal horn and the other for second clarinet. It’s an important task, but it is also one that makes me nervous: we decide people’s future, and I wish I could accept everyone. But only one of each instrument could be chosen. The bravery of ALL who play their hearts out for us does not go unnoticed by me. I admire them all, and I am humbled by their talent. So I have shared this image — a very brave looking Sparaxis among many other brave little flowers, on Facebook. I share it here as well.

Sparaxis, Red, Black and Yellow, 3.19.18
