Coming home

September 9, 2007

I’ve spent the last 10 days in Spain on the Costa Brava. I’ve been blogging to y’all daily in my mind, recharging my batteries, rethinking everything, eating fabulous Catalan cuisine and discovering amazing Spanish wines. Gaudi and Dali have been my constant companions. No UCLA, no blogging, no composing, no dogs, no bills, no Los Angeles. We fly home tomorrow hoping to avoid Hurricane Ding Dong or whatever the hell hurricane is approaching the East coast.

I cherish my commenters: thank you for participating in my reality. I have much more to say now. Apologies for not responding to your smart comments.

Stories, pictures, and observations will follow.

A review of two books in the 3 August 2007 Times Literary Supplement might be of interest. John Butt discusses Henry Kamen’s The Disinherited and John Hooper’s The New Spaniards.

On the follwing pages Michael Downes reviews three books on music, including an intriguing one by Ross W. Duffin, How Equal Temperament Ruined Harmony.

I may actually have to get a few of these books, rather than forget, as often happens, that all I know of them is from reading their reviews.

Not that anyone is likely reading this old thread—but the Duffin book arrived today and it is seriously great stuff! I am devouring it and have to stop to get some work done.
