February 5 - A Tale of Two Schools of Thought

Another beautiful day in Northern California, sheets of rain glancing in through sunlight, big billowy-hostile clouds,

the sky in rainbows, shall we say, all to enhance the atmosphere as we take

Quiz 3 in Theory (this is the endgame of the line which forms passing off the performance exercises each week -- today D Dorian, D Minor, and E Phrygian; with a simplified C-Major Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 9 "Ode to Joy" as keyboard-solfege).

Then it's off to Fry's to pick up a

digital projector for use at SF Cabaret Opera (libretti, other visuals) and

St. Mary's, where the classroom, wonderful as it is, would welcome the addition (will be bringing just about all that's needed:

Ethernet, Visual, Audio Cables
Portable Stereo Speakers

Fill out more forms required as part of the hiring process, take a brief trip in the gathering dark to the back part of the campus, where the road turns into a fire trail near the illumined cross on the hillock (picture from 2/4),

then home (Harriet at another Magic Flute rehearsal) to continue transferring files from desktop to laptop, and finish the orchestration of Saul! Saul!: I. (8 pages total) before collapsing.
