We went to a fascinating student concert at NEC last night, the first part of a two-part series featuring the piano music of Eric Satie (http://necmusic.edu/event/16375). This first concert looked at some of the Americans most influenced by Satie, including John Cage, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass.
Odd thing: the last piece, Reich's Piano Phase, left me physically disoriented. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to stand up when they finished. It was entirely physical, something about the insistent repetitions whacking on my head at irregular intervals, and it was very similar to the times when I've melted down from sensory overload. But not something that has happened before.
I'm going to start using my LiveJournal again for my personal updates: status, thoughts of the day, that sort of thing.
Anything political will be on Google+:
Longer thoughts and things related to my writing will be in my blog Cowgirl in New England and will be cross-posted if I remember.
And I randomly tweet as Alice M. Cole (pen name):
Alice has a blog too, at https://colealicem.com/, but I haven't been posting there. I ought to revive that.
Happy birthday, helweh, if you're still around!
Well, I hope you have a happy birthday even if you aren't around, but you won't get to see my wishes :)
Happy birthday, david_bridger! Hope life's great for you and I'm sorry I haven't been in touch much.
The Overamped edit is finished and NaNo writing is under way. Posting should start to happen soon. Meanwhile, my Merry-go-round tour blog post for November:
I'm going to be posting my novel--a completely new version of Not Forgetting--as I write it. The target is about 20 installments, starting later in the week because I'm going to be a day or two late starting.
It will be under lock, so if you want to read it, you'll need reply to this post so I can add you to the list. If you were on my writing list before, you're still on it.
