I bet you really like Ute Lemper. :-)

The point I was trying to make is that in any endeavor there are many who are called and few who are chosen. Not everyone gets to sing at the Met; someone has to sing on the cruise ship.
That's probably not a bad gig. The ones out to whom my heart goes are the unfortunates who have to sing in commercials and sound wildly, orgiastically excited by a brand of dish soap. I'm not sure what the photographic equivalent would be---a lifetime of product shots, I suppose?
