Arrivederci, Luciano

Years ago I watched Luciano Pavarotti perform on a PBS special, and I fell in love with opera. I'm still a complete neophyte, but there's nothing like those Saturday afternoons, windows wide open, with Pavarotti's tenor cutting through the breeze.

Luciano Pavarotti died this morning at the age of 71. He was a true master with his gift. Would that I be as faithful and masterful with mine.
