It's been travel time for us, too. It looks very lush there. The west is absolutely parched. It was nice to get home to wet and rainy Hilo.

"Walks by the Charles river". I was at the time working in Pittsburgh but attending an industrial exhibition in Boston (which I'd reached by bus because of disrupted air travel). In the evenings I did the things first-time visitors do (Faneuil Hall, Antony's), in the mornings I watched the racing shells on the Charles. This was before I'd discovered Ives, otherwise The Housatonic At Stockbridge might well have fitted in. Like many Brits I responded to the nature of New England and vowed I'd find a job in Boston. I came close but it didn't happen. Thanks for the madeleine.

That last recording you did with him was lovely. Happy to hear you are working on another one.

I am so happy you had such a fulfilling trip!

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
