Woke up this mornin'

Wasn't actually this morning but it would have been nice if it were.

Hallo, Lane!
This looks beautiful!! Could it have been sunrise yesterday (Mon., 18 Jan.)?? It was a beautiful sunny day, the first such since I reached Seattle on 6 Jan.!

This morning would have been
another photo op. As I look
across the lake here at 07:45,
I can actually see the sun,
and 20 minutes ago there was
a lot of color in the sky
and smeared on the water of
American Lake. We can see Mt.
Rainier from my window too.
So the total effect is one of
awe. You seem to imply most of
the time that you stay up late
though, most evenings, and rise
mid-morning. That certainly will
be my schedule when I retire;
unless something specific has
to be done earlier in the day.

Got to the rack late, like
10:30pm, after the TFC meeting
last night. The meeting went
well; lots of warm banter and
discussion. BRICK was liked
more than I had anticipated,
and the historical theme
rampant within YOUNG VICTORIA
and MRS. BROWN was well received
as well. I am getting to be
such a worry wart lethargic
pissypants these days. I worry
that my TFC meetings will not
go well, that the enthusiasm
will lag, or the participation
will abort and fade out. But
just not the case here. This
group of movie buffs, ever
expanding and trimming itself
as folks attend and then don't,
really have a passion for movies;
something that sustains me and
my interest. Lots of shake ups
here at the office. Some time
in the next week I have to
give up and abandon my sanctuary,
my office, to my replacement.
She is a very capable person,
and I am pleased that as the
primary Visual Skills instructor
she will do an above average
job with the students, but hell,
my space, my place, my spot
will be gone. I will have a small
desk out in the multi-purpose
room, amongst 4 others; one tiny
corner under constant scrutiny.
It will take me a time to sort
out how to continue to blog and
work at the same time. In the
meanwhile, I have to take down
all my TFC posters, performance
awards, college degrees, and pics
of my IMDb page and my three
films I appeared in, in short,
everything that is me will have
to go into a box and ride home
with me, to sit in a corner. I
have no real room at home for
the stuff. I will safe the
frames and probably put most
of it in a folder or plastic
pages in a notebook. Lots of
organizing to be done with
my world and my stuff at home.
Change, change, change....
shit fire miss agnes.
So I do not know when I will
come to work since I will have
no real privacy, or chance to
skate and blog here and there.
But we will see. I will probably
find a way.

Hallo, Lane and other readers of this excellent blog:

I just read what is currently on the website www.gatheringnote.com

and would recommend it to all readers here; it has many interesting entries; two of the best relate to the current debacle of the Seattle Symphony and R.M. Campbell's "right on the button" review of the current "Trovatore" production at the McCaw.
