I’m home from a very long day at UCSC. It began when I arrived to deal with a parking permit issue (I had the wrong license plate number on my latest purchased permit—yes, we do have to pay for parking!) at 8:45 AM. This means I left home at 8:00. I think we pulled into the garage tonight a little before 11:30 PM. That’s one very long day, and my eyes can’t stay open much longer.

But what a good day it was! First I taught, as I always do. And it was as enjoyable as ever. I just love teaching there. I spent time doing various things, including napping in my car (!), and then Dan, Jameson and I went out for sushi. Then it was back to school to see opening night of Menotti’s The Consul.

What an wonderful performance! I was impressed with every aspect of it: singers, pit, conductor, staging … so Bravi Tutti to you all! And hoorah to the group I coached! It was a delight to hear you. I do hope you all were happy with your performance … I sure was!
