I had a full day yesterday. I found myself catching up on tasks like proofing a press release for the June recital (probably too late to be effective), paying my Mom’s bills, ordering organ education material (coloring books), giving a lesson, rehearsing with my string players and practicing organ at St. Francis. Whew. Today I only have one meeting scheduled. It is with a college student who is a member of Grace and plays violin. I’m hoping to have her do some playing this summer. This will be our first meeting. I will try to assess what is reasonable to expect from her. Besides that all I have to do is practice.
New info about Jupiter.
Snakes hanging from the top of a cave’s opening, co-operating and grabbing bats.
The violinist who did the Cage silence piece on violin (instead of the usual piano silence) tuned before going on stage. Very cool.
Official video about the show.
Guerilla video of same. I think I like this one better. It begins with street musicians outside the museum.
Bookmarked to read. Linked in the first article.
Old quotes can be a bitch.
Eileen and I were talking this morning about the newly elected rep from Montana’s assault on a Guardian reporter and subsequent public approval of same by one of his supporters. We live a time of hate in America. But it’s not new. It has been there all along. Trump and the Alt right internetters have released it from public disapproval.
I love the picture comparison at the beginning of this article.
