53-104 of 2012 wOws!

My “word” for 2012 is wOw!           wOw! is one of those fabulous words that fits positive, negative and neutral situations.  It’s a word we can use when no other will work.   Over this next year of Sundays, I’m going to share some wOw!moments from the previous week.  By December 31, 2012, I’ll have shared 2012wOw! moments.    I hope you’ll have spotted (and maybe even shared) close to that, too.

  1. Hey Lisa,
    I have one for you…enjoying the little things in life before I realize that one day, the little things will become the big things. : )

  2. It’s so neat to watch your list growing and being blessed to share those wOw moments with you. By that I mean, I can’t share your exact moments, but I have had many similar moments in my own life…and when I read yours I remember my own. THANKS for making that happen for me.

    I hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. Enchanted Island on the Met Opera HD broadcast–mermaids in mid-air sprinkling silver spangles, Placido Domingo looking completely ridiculous as Neptune but still sounding like himself, tears for Prospero’s last speech (“our revels now are ended” . .. ), Danielle de Niese and Joyce diDonato singing like demigoddesses, the fabulous, crazy staging, the contralto whose name I didn’t catch, the AWFUL makeup on handsome Luca Pissarone.
