Celebrating a Year

I’m heading downtown to meet with Paulo Sa today about arranging the class I will give for his students at UFRJ. We rendezvous at Carioca station, as we always do, to go for a coffee and talk. While I am waiting for him to arrive a tune pops into my head and I hum it into my phone. Still hoping for inspiration to grab me for more than a moment at a time, but the muse won’t ever be rushed. It’s good to see Paulo and catch up on his family, students, our mutual friends, his new plucked string sextet. We’re right next to a bookstore and, it turns out, a used CD store where I add some new discs to my collection after we part company. On the walk home a gorgeous hibiscus grabs my attention. Not wanting to rub in my good fortune, but wow– is it beautiful here in their autumn!
