This Week’s Friday Five from Singing Owl.
A heavenly get-together is when I get to try out new recipes for fancy food. We go to the store, get the stuff, and everyone gets out of my way and I have the kitchen to myself. A masterpiece emerges and I am greeted with appropriate reverence. Dinner is served, compliments are lavished upon me, and someone else cleans up while I play with the babies.
This is a tough one for me as a musician who loves many genres of music. My favorite piece of choral music is Brahms’ Requiem and it is transcendent. For me, heavenly music is the exact right piece at the exact right moment – it could be Def Leppard or Fanny Crosby, but never Yanni.
A good book, a day at the spa, iTunes gift cards.
Chicken tikka masala from Naan & Curry that was still made entirely of heavy cream, but that didn’t make me fat. Any Christian Laboutin shoe that didn’t cost more than my car. A house on the beach in Mendocino – no need to improve on that.
Warmth, love, family, and an eternity of the aforementioned chicken tikka masala.
