Self-Portrait Walking
Originally uploaded by madabandon.

School is closed this week. I will attend to my choral piece. I aim to finish the first movement by the weekend. I am well on my way. It is also my birthday week: my birthday is on Friday. I don't have big plans. In fact, I have few plans at all. Every year school is closed on my birthday. This is good and bad. It's good because it is a special treat for birthday-time. It's bad because I don't get birthday wishes from colleagues. Out of sight, out of mind. But at my age I don't really care much about birthday celebrations.

I have been sleeping so much better on the new bed. The old bed was uneven and flimsy. This new bed is so solid that my mattress feels completely different. I sleep more soundly and my back does not hurt when I wake up. I should have done this years ago.

I went to Tekserve yesterday and had more RAM installed in this computer (my MacBook). Now it is quite speedy. I have 1.25G now rather then the original 512K. It makes quite a difference, especially when I am using sound editing applications.

happy birthday! fellow aquarian, i'm this wednesday -lucky 13.

and i know from reading your blog posts for some time now, -you have much cause to celebrate..

no easy task to arrive where you currently are, personally, professionally

birthdays are a great time to toast to accomplishments and make wishes..

-and regarding that picture-

most of my images of new york are of crowds.. people everywhere you turn and look

when i think of new york, i don't see an image like this.. with so much elbow room

you expand my vision here

happy birthday and winter break! love, ~s.
