Video Academic Endeavors: I.-IX. in the late hours, after watching with Harriet PBS travel shows on the Mediterranean shores of France and Croatia.
(as the weather turns weird again --
mostly overcast, warm inland,
fog racing over the Marin Ridges and into
Sonoma -- well, actually,
it was another walk on the Coast-to-Nevada project, hikes which have also doubled of late as part of a generalized approximation of the Bay Area Ridge Trail, now from the
A couple more pages (19-20) composed for Vespers: X. Psalm 147 - Lauda Jerusalem and somewhere in there a video for

The Twelve Fingers: III. Scherzo, and composing pages 17-18 of Vespers: X. Psalm 147 - Lauda Jerusalem.
Head down to Half Moon Bay's Redondo Beach to video Psalm 6: 1-5.
Before that, as Harriet heads out the door for rehearsals, compose pages 15-16 of Vespers: X. Psalm 147 - Lauda Jerusalem; and off on this suddenly warm/clear/glorious feels-like-first-day-of-summer to Berkeley rehearsal of
Job: A Masque, at Chamber Arts with Marty Stoddard, Keisuke Nakagoshi, Marilyn Pratt (Job), Heather Klein (Elihu), Kate Bautch (Job's Wife), Nanette McGuiness (God / Bildad the Shuhite), and
Sarita Cannon (Eliphaz the Temanite), in such scenes as "We Were Plowing" and
"Who Are You, Job?"
While Harriet rehearses Sutter Creek, head to the back room to video
The Twelve Fingers: II. Song.
After lunch with H at a Rockridge gormet burger joint (outdoors with non-run-of-the-mill classical background selections), make the jump south of San Francisco
north -- calling Crystal to wish her a Happy Birthday (she and Christina are moving back to Marin within a week!) and to make arrangements to get together upon their return --
for another Job rehearsal, now with the ensemble, then home through Marin, to edit and post above videos on YouTube.
