Good evening!!  Enjoying my last night here.  It's kind of crazy around the hotel.  Obama will be staying here so the security has already started being beefed up. one of the staff members told me about it, quite interesting.  I am concerned about the airport tomorrow.  They started tightening security today and I heard that it's taking a couple hours to get in and through security.  Tomorrow all the bbq people will be leaving and I imagine it will be worse.  Oh great

When do you fly out tomorrow? I hope it's a safe and easy trip.

I went to the hospitality room tonight and heard stories about people out drinking until 3:30 in the morning.   I was very glad I wasn't with them last night.  I went to the restaurant in the hotel, got a nice steak and came up to the room.  I am most content to just relax

I had meant to ask, who's watching the cats?

Wish I could stay home tomorrow and continue my clean-up of the Mom Cave, but I have to go to Lima with Fr. Richard.

'night!

DR Cillaliz - when I was a very young librarian, my boss Mrs. Brown and I both went to San Francisco for ALA, but not together.  I was very diligent about attending sessions and combing the exhibit hall.  Mrs. Brown and I had lunch together on the second or third day of the conference and she ordered me to take the afternoon off and enjoy the city!

LOL Ginny.  Since I'm still learning immigration law and had some specific questions about current cases, I really wanted to attend all the classes and since I got the answers I was looking for, I'm glad I did.  when I go to the criminal defense meetings I take more time off to tour because I know the law much better.   I'm sure I'll do that at these meetings in the future, but for now, I want to keep learning.

a little before 2:00 pm.  It's just an hour and a half flight.  Thanks for the travel vibes. I'm sure it will be fine.  Then it's another 1 1/2 hour drive and I"ll be home.  I'm ready to go home.  I do have time to have breakfast and take my time to find a cab before heading out.

I will say that I have had a ton of fun during this trip.  I didn't do the typical tourist things, but the time at the Barbeque fest last night, the dinner the night before and just spending time with the wonderful people I met at the conference was excatly what I needed right now.

The cats are being cared for by Sharon, my cat/housesitter.  She's been doing that for me since 2002.  Her business is called Critter Sitters.   The cats know her well and she has no problem giving Callie her meds.  I called her today and other than someone spitting up (Boo, no doubt) all is well.

Good Evening!

Tonight's concert at Carnegie Hall was good, but also quite interesting for a number of reasons. This was the last concert in the "Spring For Music" series. Any orchestra that was interested in being invited to Carnegie Hall for this series was asked to submit a program, and the orchestras were selected based on the programming. The programs over the past two weeks had a theme: dance rhythms, mythology, poetry, etc. Tonight's theme was "symphony" - or at least the evolution of the symphony. However, Maestro Nagano went back to the root of the word symphony, and he presented a program of various ways notes sound - either in unison or in "reaction" to each other. Well...

The first half of the program consisted of orchestral works by Gabrieli, Webern and Stravinsky, interspersed with solo keyboard works of J.S. Bach. The whole "symphony" theme seemed a bit stretched, but the playing of the orchestra was quite good. Alas, the piano soloist's approach to Bach was a bit too improvisatory for my taste. There were places where it almost sounded like she had take all sense of rhythm and beat out of the pieces.

The second half consisted of one work: Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. It's a true chestnut of the repertoire, but the Maestro seemed to be on a mission to un-cliché it. There were some interesting tempo choices, and change of tempo choices. And just when you thought the piece couldn't go any faster in a section, well... A thrilling if somewhat puzzling interpretation.

Thankfully, they ended up playing two encores. The first was Fauré's "Sicilienne" from "Pelleas et Melissande" - which was taken at a nice clip too. The second was a bit of Berlioz, "Le Corsair", and that was truly some of the best playing of the evening. The Montreal Symphony Orchestra made a name for themselves playing Berlioz under their previous Musical Director, Charles Dutoit, and it was nice to hear some of that "old school" sound and mentality to close out the evening.

After the concert, we went out for a late dinner with two of the violinists in the orchestra who happened to know my friend, Eric - who was also there tonight - and my friend, Brendan, who was also in attendance and happens to be a violinist... AND happens to be playing Beethoven 5 on a concert tomorrow afternoon. The food was great, the wine flowing and the conversation verged on scandalous at times. In other words, a perfect close to a wonderful evening. :)
