Breakfast with Jon. Then he went back to his studio to work with Round Mountain, who are finishing up their next album and I went home to work on a new slideshow for my solo performances. It will be ready for the concerts in Europe in October, but I hope to premier it in San Francisco next month.

I want add two new elements. Words and video. The words will be in many different languages, maybe reminiscent of the words on Opium which were spoken in Farsi, Russian, Korean and French. Here are a couple of glimpses:

Pasatiempo, the arts and culture insert published by the New Mexican newspaper every Friday, had a full-page and nice (I am told – I haven’t read it) article on our Lensic concert next week. They used Roshi Joan Halifax’s photo from Kham for the piece, which I think is great.

Did short interviews with local public radio station KSFR at 11:30 and 17:45.

Sadly the other local station (((KBAC cough, cough))) cancelled an interview that was set up for this past Tuesday at the last minute, demanding that we buy advertising time for the benefit in exchange for the interview. For a BENEFIT!! That’s a serious lack of community-sense, I say!
