November 19 - Walking Afar

Arrive home to the stunningly sad news from Harriet that Megan's husband Mike has died, all of a sudden, of a heart attack, at 50. Surreally, we have been planning a visit to Reno to see them this Saturday, and now that visit will be a wake, and the viewing has been independently yet serendipidously scheduled for 2pm, within an hour of our planned arrival.

Beyond, it's another semetrical day, this one with the orchestration of The Gospel According to St. Matthew: XXXIII. Walk On Water; plus Quiz 14 for the Theoreticians (a summing up of the semester's work, with excerpts from Philip Glass's Satyagraha and Akhnaten, and Sting's King of Pain); the overland-and-water to Marin and paper grading and postbox; and again to

safe harbors, meditating on the brevity of a breviary.
