Tonight, I will be watching Mozart's Don Giovanni at the Metropolitan Opera by myself. For me, it's a significant night for two reasons. First, I usually buy my season tickets a year ahead and I buy them as a set of two thinking I will bring someone with me. Lately, I've been getting stressed out ahead of time wondering, "Who should I bring this time? Will they enjoy it?" As a result, I decided, why not trade in the second tickets for additional single tickets and attend these operas by myself where I know I will fully enjoy it? I'm really learning this year about how to enjoy being by myself. I can easily go into a bar now by myself, have a drink, read a book, and/or chat with my neighbor.Me and my single Don Giovanni ticket for tonight.As I've said in a previous post, my next personal goal will be to vacation by myself. The second reason this evening will be inspiring is that I have a new found deep admiration for Mozart's prolific creativity. I knew Picasso had constantly created and evolved in his artwork but I never knew that Mozart was the same. Did you know he created over 600 pieces of music in his short lifetime? Four of his operas are amongst today's top 10 most performed operas worldwide, Don Giovanni being one of them. (Don Giovanni, is the Italian version of Don Juan)Wouldn't we all love to have that longevity in our creations? It's all about constantly creating, using your given talent.
