Evanston: a change; a fugue; a poem
I have changed the photo on the home page of my main site. If you haven’t been there for a while, the old image is above. It has been on the home page ever since I first created the site thirteen years ago.
The photo was taken from THE HAWKE OF TUONELA anchored off a motu just inside the pass at Bora-Bora. We were in about 18’ of warm water as clear as air. Carol had flown out to join me in the Society Islands, to which I had sailed from New Zealand. The island in the distance is Maupiti which I have never visited. The sailboat is outside the reef, heading for the pass which is just beyond the right side of the photo. I don’t recall the year.
To see the new home page;
I listen to some Bach and I read some poetry every day.
I have more than thirty albums of Bach’s music, but often when I have a good Internet connection I go to All of Bach, the exemplary project by the Netherlands Bach Society to make video recordings of all of Bach’s work.
I went there last evening and chanced upon his Little Fugue in G Minor. Once this was one of my favorites. I have listened to it twice off Cape Horn. Now I still like it, but I like all of Bach.
Also Iast evening I came across ‘Mag’, a poem by Carl Sandburg. Not my story. I do not know if it was his.
