At work

The best ideas come to me when I polish my shoes early in the morning.
— J. Brahms

Not to be too coy, but I have been at occasional work on How to Tell (the new trio-in-progress). Puttered on it while riding the bus this morning — which is to say, no particular news.

Spoke on the phone today with two different friends in southern California, though circumstances conspire against either of them attending performances this month of Angular Whimsies.

For Castelo, and even though in theory there is a lot of time yet on the calendar, I am starting to lose hope. Which of course means that I need a Plan B for half the 19 May program.

One possibility is to make How to Tell a much more substantial piece. Would not be the oddest thing I’ve ever done.
