later (music, tea, a semi-private reading)

Despite my plans, I didn’t write or draw haptics at the open rehearsal for the Cabrillo Music Festival — which I suppose says something about the music. I just listened, and enjoyed witnessing the process of making great music. I especially liked Pierre Jalbert’s Aeturnum (the composer was there), and Phillip Glass’ Cello Concerto.

Later, Michael and I had tea in the downstairs study of Cafe Namaste. The room reminds me of the inside of a boat (note for later: cool place to write — and check out the garden room).

We also had the Chained Hay(na)ku Project with us, and Michael read some poems out loud (great reading voice), from “[untitled]” by the WRYTING-LLISTSERV.WVU.EDU group (18 writers!); “Change” by Michael Fink, Margo Ponce, and me; “Transubstantiation,” by Peg Duthie, Donna Carte, and Neal Jettpace; and “lemon moon” by May Garsson, Adele Mendelson, and Edna Cabcabin Moran.
