  1. A beloved gem of St. Louis.
  2. This is a podcast discussing a great opera aria about aging, time, life, and love. It is sung by a woman in her autumn years expressing the warmth-chill bittersweetness of her affair with a young man in the bloom of his life. Even if you do not like opera, it is worth a listen.
