Rising 08.12 from NightWorld adventures with Elizabeth and Mr. Bennett.
Down to the breakfasting trough: an outside table, still sufficiently cool in the Roman Summer.
On this day in 1993 my Mother, St. Edith of the Valleys, flew from this world.
News has come in: Tony Arnold flew away three days ago, in France where he lived.
Setlisting for a performance of two hours and forty minutes max.
11.38 Joined by David for a DGM Breakfast Meeting. Good topics covered. Leaving the trough with a meeting underway between Mr. Bill, Toby Amies and David; into the lounge area where Jakko and Gavin are interviewing.
24.22 First performance at the Cavea, a modern amphitheatre holding c. 2,800 audients. Beginning 21.00, first set 55 minutes, overall time 2 hours 41 minutes to a hard curfew at 23.45. A very good headphone sound; and David reports an excellent sound in the venue too. Very well received by a generous audience.
I walked onstage knowing that this band’s position in the world has changed level. Personally, I am feeling much stronger today: out of the Great Divide and into the end stage.
Cavea, Rome I
Into the Crimson Zone…
24.55 A call from home. Yippee! I am not wishing away my life, nor my good fortune in being a member of this band, nor the opportunity to be present with audients when Music flies by. But I miss my little Wife.
