song of the day: 'masquerade' from the phantom of the opera
i'm starting to get a little excited about halloween! i just have to get crackin' on putting together the costumes. but, because of the holiday, i thought it would be nice to get out on a cloudy morning to this crazy little cemetery i found not long ago. it feels a bit haphazard in its layout, but i love its location. up high on a hill in the middle of the woods kinda overlooking the lake. i wouldn't even think of going out here in the dark or even close to dark. yikes. i kept hearing some rustling in the brush and getting a little creeped out. but that's what makes it exhilarating, right?
a few years ago, matt and i went to new york and he surprised me with tickets to see phantom of the opera. it was spectacular! we sat in the third row from the stage, right in the middle. when the chandelier dropped, i swear i could almost reach out and touch it, it was so close. it was such a good show. and masquerade was one of my favorite scenes. i loved all the characters in their colorful ball gowns and masks, and the song is just cool and so different than all the others. just thinking about it makes me want to watch the movie! and wear a super romantic elaborate gown and grow long beautiful hair and walk around singing while being chased by a crazed maniac with a half mangled face. doesn't it you?
