I found that the Triad tasks plus the physical demands of my therapy proved too much, and I had to apply the brakes. My Triad colleagues are super supportive, so we made arrangements, and I have been resting and re-charging.

Always a good idea to pace yourself. I hope your health continues to improve.

Wow! That's some counterpoint you have going on your piece, Karl. It reminds me of Elliot Carter!

Had a follow-up with my neurologist today. He finds that I look very good. He wants to see me behind the wheel again, and I think it's a great idea.

Had a nice Zoom call with my old conductor friend. I wanted to share with him that there look to be two more performances of Out in the Sun (though I don't know just when) at the University of Michigan (this will be the third performance of the piece there) and the University of Indiana. I knew that his orchestral programming is backed up thanks to the indefinite lockdown. Still it was highly gratifying that he assured me that he hasn't forgotten about White Nights.

I remember quite vividly that fine performance: we went to Ann Arbor, back when we lived in Toledo!


White Nights ought to be premiered in Russia at the Bolshoi Ballet!

Very nice, Karl. :) It’s great to read that White Nights could get a performance. 8)
