March 7 - The Privilege of Rebirth
Another glorious, sad day, with the soft undulations of Mt. Diablo and the Sulfur Springs Foothills beckoning,
on the way east of Eden,
the snaky evergreen-oak ravines above Long Barn,
and the Chinese Wall for another
Dioclesian/Diocletian rehearsal, finishing an initial staging of this short version of the latter, from I. Abject and Obscure (with Maria Mikheyenko [Edward Gibbon], Alexandra Jerenic [Diocletian], Katherine Cornelius, Indre Viscontis, and Annmarie Ballinger) to
VI. Country Dance (with the addition of Allison Collins, Robin Cox, and Kimberly Anderman [Drusilla].
After a walk on the Reliez Valley Station / Glenside Road Trail, with views of Rheem Hill,
past oaks and
a rendezvous with the U.C. Davis Library copy of Arthur Honegger's Le Roi David provides guidance for the beginning of King David orchestration.
