“I am not thoughtless but am prepared for anything and as a result can wait patiently for whatever the future holds in store, and I’ll be able to endure it.”
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
I once took a course at California University State Northridge . It was a survey course, a history of early drama where I learned about the importance of the chorus . How early Greek plays built their dramas up using a chorus.
I highlight this song from the play Hair today because the elements of its structure are ancient. A singer , a story and a moral application which is amplified by a chorus.
I think we are living in one of the darkest times of our country’s history . This song is filled with foresight. The contrary experiences we face now are profound and we can not escape. What happens to the mass body bags? We do need to wear masks made from factories.
A grand mystery drama is upon us as a nation and we stand here.
Thinking upon The Magic Flute story and how at the darkest time is when the light comes . Are we waiting for deus ex machina?
I “wait patiently for whatever the future holds in store.”
Yes corny as it may sound , “let the sunshine in ! “
