March 15 - The Ides of the Morning After

Unload the box platforms, stairsteps, and tables at home; petrol up the van (to the tune of $26+ for a mere roundtrip to SF),

return it (with seemingly

mountains everywhere),

and make the way past

Eden and

Horse Farm to

Diablo for an introduction to Romantic harmony -- including F Minor (Natural and Harmonic), Ab and Db Major, the Chromatic Scale, C Aug/Maj/Min/Dim Triads, Orchestration, Half-Diminished and Diminished 7ths, musical examples from Hector Berlioz and Richard Wagner, and a dictation / board harmony on Frederic Chopin's Prelude in E Minor.

Record beginning of Psalm 110 and all of Vespers: III. Nigra sum, returning past the Mothball Fleet,

Trash Valley and Stonewind,

Wooded Top, and the

Suburbs Slopes to continue publication-preparation of Psalm 10 (3), and writing fourth page of Vespers: IV. Psalm 112.
