The rolling of time

The gradual progression of the opus number assignment, from about the time I first conceived of writing the piece, to the present. Over time, other pieces emerged, and wanted finishing. Then came this year, and a renewed will to wrap up various worthy musicks which deserve a public.

There have (probably) been musical sketches to match, added at each successive time. Each succeeding milestone may likely represent as simple a matter as, I was leafing through my notebook again that day, and my eye fell upon the Whitman text, and I thought, That's still a good idea, what if I work a bit more on it?...
