November 8, 1989

I didn’t
       begin to focus
             on numeric dates   
          until after
 I married
      my husband.  
          I chronicle my tales
in photographic scripts
      and microfilms
I play via
     my third eye
   when I feel
        discombobulated.   
     My bi-product
               trifecta has always
        held steadfast
between
                music
               poetry
          & advocacy
                   I’m in my element
              when all three
       are simultaneously
present.
           I could see all facets
                  present as a spectator
                         of my first musical theatre
                 experience. A family member  
          held an AMEX card
which meant our tickets
       were centre stage
seven
     rows
          back
     from the
             main stage
         approximately
      one month after
               it opened in Toronto
  at The Pantages Theatre. 
        I genuinely
              fell in love
          with every aspect
               of that production,
                      to the point  
          my Phantom of the Opera
                      CD’s are still snug
            in my carrier.
At one point
          a M.A.S.S.I.V.E.
                   and quite glorious
          chandelier
                rose and floated
           above our heads. 
           I was in complete awe
   as the visual aspect
          of this performance
enhanced
        the musicality.
         to this day,
                    I can’t help it,
 I constantly sing Angel of Music,
         Christine’s Soprano voice  
renders my body
               in a constant state
        of electricity.
