December 15 - Burning Questions

Begin reviewing a number of videos from the local library, beginning with the initially unpromissing (at least vis a vis the cover, anyway) Battle for the Bible, which turns out to be the challenges of first translating the Bible into English, focussing on John Wycliffe (1320-1384) and John Tyndale (1492-1536, pictured above as perhaps conscious during his auto da fe).

In counterpoint to this and  

The Bible Unearthed: The Making of a Religion (fascinating critical study of the historical bases of the Hebrew Scriptures / Old Testament), engage in general catch-up, start the pdf of Spectral Preludes: X, and compose Double Piano Concerto: III, page 17.



back on the Alamo Creek Bike Trail,

with Harriet,

in gentle precip, from Brookdale Court, across Peabody,

beyond palms and

cypresses, to

Southside Junction,

returning in light and the gathering night.


camp for

chicken / crab / sausage / scallop / shrimp jambalaya and a tequila sunrise at Joe's Creekside Cafe,

and finally

home for more Bible Unearthed in counterpoint with The Decameron - Third Day: VII (19).
