I feel most blessed to live in the independent music capital of Portland, Oregon. Last night I enjoyed the lively Victorian-era French cabaret circus stylings of Vagabond Opera at the old Wonder Ballroom.
The fair red-headed chanteuse's rendition of Edith Piaf's swooning melody, Milord, the hulahooping fire-eating chorus girl and a general atmosphere of hedonistic bohemian revelry made for a most memorable Valentine's Day.
Pictured is my bohemian muse. If I close my eyes I can see her dancing to the music.
