Roy Fisher, my dear Lyric Opera supernumerary (acting extra) friend, moved on to that Great Opera House in the Sky on July 4, 2017, during his 91st year. He was loved by many and deserved to be as he was one of the kindest men I know, always with a smiling welcome and a kind comment.
Last night I dreamed about him and his life partner, Chris. I was taking Chris to the Botanic Garden and Roy was seeing us off. He looked to be in his late twenties and I commented so. I also asked, "May I ask if you have you seen God?"
His reply, with a broad smile and a sparkle in his eyes, was, "Not yet but I have seen much evidence of God's work. And it is beautiful!"
With those words, I awoke to a bright sun shining morning ready to begin my day (with a smile on my face and a bit of wonder on my mind.)
