Wood Shedding Season

Was so happy to vote yesterday and to see sanity retake the House of Representatives. We didn’t win all the battles, but in terms of diversity and public service, we can count this as a big win.

Meanwhile, this is firewood season. Been splitting and stacking since July, and now the wood shed is almost full and ready for the winter to come. Somehow satisfying to go out and smack those logs around an get them into shape when so much is uncontrollable.

And the wood shed is right outside my composing room, so this process always feeds into my writng. This season no different, putting the finishing touches on a new suite of pieces for the subscription recording series of 2019. Will perform them on December 1st in New York.

And the house will be warm and toasty.
