March 9 - Chop Wood Carry Water
Day after the SFCCO concert, so what do we do? Rehearse of course, but this time with Goat Hall / SF Cabaret Opera back at Chamber Arts in Berkeley with
Eliza O'Malley and Kristen Jones,
Harriet March Page,
and Kat Cornelius (basking catlike in the sun), in San Rafael News, three excerpts from Antigone, and Fire from The Bald Soprano (with recordings at markalburgerworks.blogspot.com), as well as music of Kurt Weill.
Coffee break up at Peet's overlooked by the Claremont Hotel
and the Berkeley Hills beyond.
Lunch, logistics-Board Meeting al fresco thereafter with Harriet and Janet,
followed by a drive south beside the Oakland Hills and
another hike in the Castro Valley area, continuing a string of walks south from the East Bay's Skyline Trail (considerably west of this declivity in Dublin [CA] Canyon, above),
with views of Mt. Diablo from 680 near San Ramon,
oak-and-flower-bestrewn foothills east of Danville,
the plain and hill of Cordelia,
and cows clusterd by an oak in the North Lagoon Mountains on the way home.
