Dan and I have been away this weekend, visiting our daughter and son-in-law in SoCal. For the life of me I can’t fathom how anyone can stand to live in Los Angeles. Coming and going on freeways there was horrendous. Kelsey and Mel live beyond that, so they aren’t in as much of the mess. It was a quick but very nice visit. I didn’t listen to a speck of music in the car; somehow when I’m in the car with Dan I’m not in the mood to do that, but when I drive that trek alone I rarely have the iPod touch off.

Speaking of “i” …

I had thought perhaps we’d look at the iPad while we were down there, since Saturday was the Big Day, but we didn’t manage to get to the Apple store. I’m not all that excited by the thing in any case. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we end up with iPhones at some point, but I just don’t know about the iPad. I’ve been told you can’t have more than one app opened at a time. I’m a multiple app person. And no camera? What’s with that? And, in any case, I have my MacBook Pro and isn’t that enough? I think so. (It’s certainly as much as I can afford!)

This week is a “get back to work … almost” week. I return to UCSC. Most of my private students are here. But still no rehearsals. Those begin next week, with Opera San José and La Rondine. (A new opera for us!) I really must get some better reeds going. That’s the Most Important Task (MIT™) for me right now.

Unless the reed fairy shows up.

I’ll continue to dream of that day …
