Soundtracks to Life
Last week I went to see Phantom of the Opera (for the - FIFTH! time). It's probably my favorite show EVER. Seeing it again with my mom made it even more special, because I know how much she loves the shear musicality of the experience. I've been in a Broadway mood ever since. Tonight I'm listening to Les Mis. I don't know what it is about these lines. Maybe it's the fact that I've studied this part of history. Maybe it's just the emotion that comes through in the writing. But even though it's not my favorite show, I've always thought these are most powerful lines I've ever heard put to music: Tomorrow we'll discover what our God in heaven has in store. One more dawn. One More Day. One. Day. More.
