"You can look in the forest ... For a secret field ... For a golden arrow ..."

I've raved about The Light in the Piazza before, but now that the soundtrack (released on that great label, Nonesuch Records, home of John Adams, Steve Reich, The Magnetic Fields, Audra McDonald, assorted Sondheim and k.d. lang) has been out for a few weeks, I have another reason.

If you haven't heard the music yet, there are clips of "Dividing Day," "Say It Somehow," "Love to Me" and "Octet" available here. My favorite songs are actually the (somewhat bittersweet) ones sung by Victoria Clark who plays the mother: "Dividing Day," "Let's Walk" and "Fable" -- the finale -- although "Say It" and "Love to Me" are close runners up.

Ventured to distant but pleasant Bay Ridge last night. Off to Jersey today. Forecast high? 90 again!
