July 23 - Return

Another up-early-grade-papers-breakfast-slam before finishing up Igor Stravinsky Firebird (1909) excerpts with the Historians and proceeding anon through Carl Orf's Carmina Burana (1935), followed by Piano Quiz 5.

Home right after, for a change -- in anticipation of Harriet's arrival (from Western Washington via Roseberg, OR) -- through Suisun Valley,

winding around the outliers of the Vaca Mountains,

including (of course) the North Lagoons.

We catch up at local Mexican spot al fresco (or, al fuera, one supposes) and then retire to evening affairs, including completed orchestration of Esther Xerxes: VII. "If Anyone".
