DOWNTIME

BODY WATCH : An Electrifying Date With the Phantom Soothes the Soul

October 04, 1994

Home alone. The car pool has come and gone and blessed silence descends. It is time to escape into the music. I make my choice, and from the stereo the electrifying sounds of "The Phantom of the Opera" blaze out. Depending on my mood, I will become either the tremulous, haunted Christine or the elegant, sensuous, tortured Phantom. Today I am the Phantom. "Down once more to the dungeon of my black despair" as I clean up the breakfast dishes, swirling my black, silken cape around me. The haunting music fills my soul. I become one with this poor hunted creature. All too soon the van returns and regurgitates my children, and I must leave my dark lair and return to the daylight.
