Flights of Fancy —

Writing is a solitary art, and some writers enjoy staying inside the lovely cocoon of their own minds. My own mind, frankly, is not so hospitable, and I thus make concentrated efforts to connect with other writers to build a society, especially as a writer living in a foreign country.  I was pleased at the chance, therefore, to work with a performing arts buddy, who shares my love of ballet and opera in Japan.

It was not always a smooth collaboration; I worried about balancing my own agenda and ego, completely forgetting about her own, but ultimately I learned not only about opera, but about people and culture, communication and working styles.

Here is our finished piece, on opera in Japan.
