December 2 - Reflections
Yet another heavenly morning with Harriet,
decamping for a breakfast spot,
sun emerging from tormented clouds,
like some afternoons in Pacifica,
violent / violet / wonderful.
Returning home to finish the newspapers, the day is spent in more catch-up,
including pdf and new recording of Spectral Preludes: IV. Red-Orange, plus composition for Double Piano Concerto: III (4) and The Decameron - Third Day: VII. "Tedaldo Elisei Delivers the Husband of Monna Ermellina from Peril of Death" (6),
while intermittently watching
Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited (in its 2008 filmic incarnation -- definitely now interested in viewing the 1981 manifestation as well) and
Mr. Palfrey of Westminster (1985 -- Mr. Paslow?...).
