September 17 - If It's Wednesday It Must Be Friday

Walk in the Briones East Bay Municipal Water Distict Lands (what a poetic name), as if it's a Friday afternoon, but it's Wednesday, having just finished giving a Theory Dictation of the Alas, You Are Dead recitative from Claudio Monteverdi's

Orfeo (although the Gustave Moreau above is more "He Is Dead"). Also off to Marin to do the paper-grading-Mexican-restaurant-post-office routine, then home for 12 pages of orchestration for XI. The Sacrifice (16 pages of this movement so far) from

Abraham and Isaac.
