The tour ended Saturday night on a high note with the sucess of the show in Asheville, North Carolina. I enjoyed the performance and over the last series of shows, was writhing and moving in an extreme rapture during the second half of Reason To Live. I think some people were surprsed to see dancing but, yes, it is true I love to move to music. As in a number of these shows, not only were Larsen in fine form but it was clear that the music moved through them joyously. Victor was precise in his stage role (as I had originally visualized his involvement ) : a dark executioner. Conceptually this show evolved to be what I set out to present and the development from the first show in Atlanta to these final ones gave me a great deal of satisfaction. I feel strong. I feel alive. i feel HAPPY. I LOVE to perform and my sincere thanks to all of you who came out to see us this summer. Heartfelt thanks. And as I said goodbye after last night’s show from the stage : Hail Italia ! Hail Bombay ! Hail Mississippi ! XXXXXXX
