November 2 - Driving Ahead

Another beautiful early November day for the drive to Diablo, with Paul McCartney's Yesterday (first seven bars) for dictation and board harmony, with voice-leading for keeps. Before that, compose page 18 of Pini di Surriento and orchestrate page 5 of The Gospel According to St. Matthew: XXVII. The Sower.

After, past Orinda, the Bay Bridge has reopened, and over we go, then down the Pacifica Coast again to Half Moon Bay finishing a walk along the now-dirt

frontage road of California Highway 1 to Main Street at the

McDonalds and an

old ranch (everyone needs goals), then back in the car, past

Devils Slide,

Pacifica, and

Skyline's moony views of San Bruno Mountain, to pick up Clare for

San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra second rehearsal of the Haunted House Science Fiction Quiz Show program. Home late, to the publication-preparation and visual libretto to

Sex and the Bible: 6. Israel in Trouble: VII. How To Depart.
