On modest, workaday accomplishments

Last night in my dream, a fellow composer laid out, simply and with no fuss, his nonstandard terminology. “I call it Minism. If you use what everyone else says, Minimalism—you can hear for yourself—there’s too many syllables, flying in the face of the idea behind the style.”

In spite of the predictable, routine weekly challenge of Monday in the office, I am getting everything done which I wanted. I took a solid hour's nap; I practiced the passages in the Leichtling which need further mastery; and here I am, ready for the second Triad rehearsal for this concert cycle.
