Long drives from Sana Cruz to SF, and over the SCruz
mountains past La Honda, and into the environs of Woodside
and Pajaro Valley, the posh center of Silicon Valley 
Philistine Kultur - reserved for the meanest and richest
in CA.... prettty, wooded, cultivated....but the Heart Of Darkness
- Silicon Valley is a hard grim place to work, and often,
for 3rd-world con artists, who are adept at hypnotizng Yanks,
and are intent on stepping over you
after they have taken your intellectual assets...
I have watched the process for several decades...

 memorable and very musical services as usual... 
L'Shanna Tova to all

A few weeks filled with 
my small attentions paid to traditions
and hope, blessings, light...finally, atonement...
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Via a subscription to a local theatre, unlimited first run movies
for $20/mo ...they show a max of 9 or so a week...
recently seen:

The Equalizer (Denzel Washington ***+)
  echt violent...ex-cia vigilante - strong echoes of
  Death Wish and Charles Bronson
A Walk Among The Tombstones (Liam Neeson ***+) Similar,
   more violent then Taken - another good
  vehicle for Neeson
The Drop (Tom Hardy, Gandolfini ****) Echoes of Brando
  On The Waterfront - Hardy is brilliant
The Maze Runner (***+) spectacular CGI - echoes of
  Lord Of The Flies/Hunger Games - the latter is repulsive
  story...for any parent...

"I am in a duel to death with this wallpaper. One of us has to go."
Oscar Wilde....shortly before his death

N.B., I've been on DA for about 11 years, first as ainsophaur2 (some other Hebe here
actually knew the same word!!!) ....and lightsource..... and... as artin2007, for prurience,
in recent years......at this time, all the prurient works on the last are in storage.... Richard Burtan's wife Isabell 
will probably delete many of those... One of the loveliest Divas on the world stage suggested 
the name dofaust, since we were both quite aware that Gounoud's piece would never
be heard or occur to my ex, who, the witty Diva insisted, I should refer to as "A1" - and herself
as "A2" -- since they shared the same birthname. Which A2 preferred her confidantes to use.
For several years, I had quite a muse, and a most pleasurable immersion into the inner circle
of the world of Opera....

Attractive women with very exceptions are always limited in their intellectual development. Its inevitable. All the attention is distracting. Its simply nature at work. If you are being pursued,
you simply don't have as much access to a rich inner life.....  when looks go, 
later in life, its easy to communicate with those who have been unattractive
and undistracted most of their earlier lives.....

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Its always a good time for a good one: 

 Groucho:


Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
Room service? Send up a larger room.
Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?
Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others.
He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot.
I never forget a face, but in your case I'll be glad to make an exception.
A child of five could understand this. Fetch me a child of five.
From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend reading it.
Ice Water? Get some Onions - that'll make your eyes water!
You know I could rent you out as a decoy for duck hunters?
You've got the brain of a four-year-old boy, and I'll bet he was glad to get rid of it.
A man's only as old as the woman he feels.
Why should I care about posterity? What's posterity ever done for me?
Why, I'd horse-whip you if I had a horse.
Military justice is to justice what military music is to music.
I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book.
I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it.
If I held you any closer I would be on the other side of you.
I don't care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members.
It is better to have loft and lost than to never have loft at all.
I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury.
Either he's dead or my watch has stopped.
Remember men, we're fighting for this woman's honour; which is probably more than she ever did.
Women should be obscene and not heard.
Time wounds all heels.
Why was I with her? She reminds me of you. In fact, she reminds me more of you than you do!
Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife.
As soon as I get through with you, you'll have a clear case for divorce and so will my wife.
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Quote me as saying I was mis-quoted.

Groucho Marx 1890-1977

An educational week. Cherchez La Femme.

The Nutcracker in San Jose with all my children: 

They were happy with the Ballet's Music

Tchaikovsky is a blessing taken for granted too long 

And A supper from Israel afterwards 

And back to an quiet solitary exile with 

Upton Sinclair of all people..."Oil!"...

not very Christmasy!


Many thanks to all my friends and colleagues, just for being, 

There are many that I am overdue to send good thoughts, 

crits, favs, etc to...so many...one defect of  DA!

Personal Events Highlights In Recent Years


2013 

  My new abode is largely empty, and a year ++ of unpacking and design remain...
  hundreds of pictures to hang, repair, or repair/matte..... thousands of books and
  records - now would be the time for setting up a bookshop!!!!

  Arson fires in my first months in YLP!!!! .....culprits lived less than a mile away!

  A blazing Summer in YLP....much like Fresno...

  Attended  a glam wedding on the lawn at the Legion Of Honor in SF, the
reception then primarily in the Rodin sculpture galleries. I appeared to be the
 only one so naif as to be hypnotized by the paintings and sculpture.

  Cirque du Soleil the movie with the children.... stunning.... but....cold, though....

  The Spring Poker Gathering at Bass Lake, a spectacular visit to Yosemite - we are
  planning a hike up one of the steeper trails of Halfdome, next spring. Well, 3-4 of us
  who _may_ have the guts! The group also saw my new abode - 30+ miles away in
  Coarsegold - and approved it.

  Les Miserables...the movie....wonderful, if one likes Recitative from beginning to
  end, and no discernible beginning or end to the melodies - NOR rhythm  anywhere -
  a talented first-year composition student could have done MUCH MUCH better...a shame given the great story...
  
  Boardwalk Golfing with Becky and outings several times to Monterey and Carmel
  and several times chilling-out at Twin Bridges, Santa Cruz. (Possibly her last summer
  at the Rwd Est pool - and the first time I have not been there with her.... too painful, that....)alt Disne

  First visit to the Exploritorium in SF with Becky and David. An amazement! An entire pier!

  A second visit to the Walt Disney Family Museum at the San Francisco Presidio. (Next door to the barracks I spent my
  last Army summer camp in! Memories!)
 
  (2013, 2014 cinema - new - and re-seen...perspectives to follow:)
  
  American Graffitti
  Arthur Rubinstein, Love Of Life
  Mephisto Waltz
  Whistle Down The Wind
  Zorba
  To Kill A mockingbird
  Bridge To Terebithia
  Snow White And The Huntsman
  2001
  Narnia (versions from several decades)
  The Hobbit 1,2
  LOTR (extended versions)
  Ride The High Country
  Adieux, Les Enfants
  Belle De Jour
  Cirque du Soleil 
  I, Frankenstein
  The Master
  A Late Quartet
  Zero Dark Thirty 
  Quartet

  The Impossible

  Iron Man 3
  Star Trek Into Darkness
  Pacific Rim
  Man Of Steel
  Riddick
  Gravity
  Rush
  Captain Phillips
  Bad Grandad


   Started work in earnest at a startup - but an unreliable and dishonorable entrepreneur...
  loose ends from my move - the Piano will be the last to come - March....it came....
  it appears... Hanon--- here I come hahahaha
  Abandoning Rhonda B - finally received her message - after more than a decade 
  of wonderful conversations -and -     when I needed those most... I have those good memories anyway.....
    - she prefers a plainer, duller sort - but handy around the house! Good luck to he!
  Super Bowl weekend in SCruz with almost lifelong friends- and a call to a
  classmate in NZ   .....girding loins for a return to resist an evil Judge and other legal adventures
  seeking JUSTICE..... that is a slow process, but....it continues....

  A few visits from my two youngest children, to Coarsegold.... the first time in 5 years + that we three are under
    the same roof....a special time for a Dad unjustly punished by a judge who is a combination of Jean Valjean's
    Judge - and Cotton Mather - melded into one... hope remains for justice from the Feds and ACLU...

  More progress unpacking... including making curtains, repairing furniture, local fires from arsonists come close ...!
....and...shoved aside a few tons to make room for a big H-Davidson of my brother's.... glad to return favors!

 ..a wonderful Yom Kippur 5774 at Sherith Israel - great music, and...spirit...et al......music that was very 
 comparable to that of Shir Hadash, in quality and spiritual depth...

  Moving my brother's H-Davidson that was shipped from SArabia - a bit of an adventure that ended fine.
  Another - but costly adventure - shopping for engines, but finally....rebuilding my Saturn engine, to pass the CA smog tests!
  (Note, much labor, including car mechanics, is often 40%+ less a few hundred miles away from big cities.)

  Also in September 2013: Trips to Twin Bridges Beach in Santa Cruz with my two youngest (15, 20) children.
  Next: moving my son, 20, in to live with me, and preparing his likely room: a fairly large RV, which he likes,
  but which needs to be emptied, since its been a storage locker! ?? Where to put several thousand books,
  and a like number of LPs? (The garage is also full!...so a storage shed is in the offing...ha .... downsizing is
  on the agenda in years ahead, except for art, music, and only a fraction of my library!)

  Disappointment at not being able to disengage to travel to visit relatives old friends, and special DA friends

Earlier Years:

2002
  a very good year at PGE
  many trips with the family to Berkeley - North Berkely and Albany - SF, esp. Japantown, Chinatown, and North Beach
  one engagement with a pro photag in SF - great shots of me in business attire
  (the one and only engagement with a pro - it didn't take long for me to realize I could do better myself)
2003
 continuing digital art experiments - since 1999 --....artsig
  ...finishing engagement at PGE...could've stayed longer
 a frustrating short engagement at EDS after PGE - they wanting mainframe skills long unused, dormant
2004
 some tough times financially

 my first letters and communiques with a certain muse, at Artsig
 started a rather good engagement at Sandisk
2005
  finished a longish engagement at Sandisk in Sunnyvale - remembering many blocks of empty office bldgs
  A hellish engagement in Ft Smith Ark at Beverly - an emotional and bad consulting manager 
   however, a beautiful old town - my last visit with Uncle Loren -  and a drive to Grove
  This year, and as all preceding, for a decade, and all subsequent, weekly outings with my children....
  With the children, always, countless pleasures in parks, walks, cinema, beach, golf, Santa Cruz, SF
Late in the year, after much correspondence with an unknown lady at an 
    art site, she reveals more of herself to me re her work as a professional 
    musician -      a prominent one, who relishes Art as an escape from the
    stressful world of the Opera - from the inside, at least....she becomes a muse
    My muse attempts intervene and to reconcile my wife and I - to no avail

2006
   My first classroom experience in Music for many years - a survey of the Opera
  The muse reveals herself in actuality, during the first class I have attended in 
  many years - a history of Opera - I revel in a new art form and my new
  muse....I learn much  
   I start an engagement as an employee of an unusually sympatico IT company, 
   SPL
  This winter is a harsh one for my muse - a child lost - more mistreatment by her abusive spouse
  My Muse and I correspond and communicate much, perhaps too much for the Net

2007
  Much of the year banished to my cottage, a strange and unexpected "accident",
 cookies from Erin(!)
  Betrayal by a My Muse
  A meeting with the Muse backstage, Jeanne as photographer at Zellerbach Hall
     in Berkeley, after her recital - I said the wrong thing to the muse, she turns her back and walks 
      away...Her potty-mouth teenage daughter blasts me online as a proxy... I unwisely....vent....online  --
       - but apologize several times - The Muse's staff knows nothing, and communicates nothing
   I continue living in my cottage - a big mistake not to have continued, in retrospect...
   The estate estate "bubble" in the US hits me, I loose - big-time- my BK 13 follows
   Arthritis pain prevents me from walking more than a few hundred feet w/o having to rest the ain...
2008
   Oracle buys a smaller, successful IT company -- my employer, and unpleasant cultural changes ensue,
      of course.
   I move out of my cottage, and return to under the same roof as my children
   Travels for Oracle to MN, Virginia Beach, The Oregon ISO in Portland
2009
   Meet old friends John and Deirdre at Moss landing.... I can barely walk a few hundred feet
   An adventure, long-planned, disappointed, and with it, a return to a more realistic world view
   My first serious surgery - orthopedic - and, thankfully, the end of many years of pain
   Confined to a hellish "old age" center - for "rehab" after my operation - against several who
     advised against this - but refused comfort and shelter by my Ex at my own house....
   ....earlier memories of 2009:
  A good conversation with Tom Steen and Bronc (last of the male Jacksons)
  Good movies with David and Becky: Avatar (beautiful) and Sherlock Holmes (revisionist)
  Extreme anxiety + pain + unproductive at Oracle  in the runup to surgery all thiis year
  A Trip to Disneyland with David, Becky, Suzie
  Dean Kanas stranded, out of work during the holidays
  A surprise Facebook greeting from Guy Max Orlovitz
  unsuccessful dating! ....Peggy T,...but Dr Linda B remained...
  New Years Eve dinner at Takara (sans Suzy - with Chris - substantial relationship))
  SF Ballet nutcracker with the children - beautiful and opulent but distant
  Tara Mc.... a new lady,  tenant in my cottage
  DPI reunion last Aug and seeing all (Janice Thorburg, Puorros, et al...)
  meetings with Shir Hadash and Rabbi Melanie + the yahrzeits she mentioned this year
  Jeannes old trailer moved early in year to Laverne, filled now with books & donations
  meetings with JCC re art
  Meeting with John and Deirdre at Zelda's + Dr Linda first meeting....
  A good conversation with Bennett
  Great printing on fabric at DPI in SF
  A Visit to the NW to see Rhonda, Jay, Miles, Sally... barely able to walk.....
  First and last scene at F-M (Lorrett, Estrella) + subsequent writings
  Moved storage possessions to larger facility with David
  Aunt Rela passing
  Carole Sue Steen Kelly passing
  Uncle Loren passing
 Jeanne's offer to stay in SF - Jeanne to Egypt with Mark in Jan
 Late Oct Left Hip Replacement by Los Gatos Surgeon, with no time for a second opinion
 World Series Yankees + Boston at Rehab Center
 surgery trauma + rehab facility trauma and anxiety + visits
 HELLISH REHAB CENTER CHERRY BLOSSOM FOR 11 DAYS AFTER HIP  
 REPLACEMENT -  ANYA HAD  REFUSED HELP AT HOME
 Visits by Jeanne, R'Melanie and Anya/Kids to Rehab Center 
 Exit old redneck tenant Lisa....
 Becky's 13th b-day Bowling party
 movies: Avatar, A Christmas Carol (jim carrey), princess & the frog, planet 51,  
 bedtime stories,  g-force, (terminators with David),
 distract 9 with David,  UP, 
 finding neverland, HP movie: the half-blood prince
..............
2010

  Severe foot surgery (and, a mediocre surgeon!) in Santa Cruz for the long-delayed 
   bunion -  Dr Lee's bad idea to postpone this for a decade+ had severe consequences ....
  Rehab for foot at Jeanne's and Mark's first house at The Villages in San Jose
  A Car accident with my daughter, who was unhurt, but, for myself,  - more  
     pain - for a few years to come
  The NutCracker - this time in Sf - inferior to San Jose - one of the last with all three children...

2011

  A pleasant time with the children, but pain-filled first half of the year with Arthritis - albeit perhaps
   the last six months in my house of 32 years ....
  A successful surgery for my youngest daughter's Epilepsy at UCSF
    - and scorn and nausea for EIGHT years of bad medicine from STANFORD mds
  Another successful surgery for a spine fusion for moi at UCSF - relief from pain!!!! great technology and surgeon!!
     .....rehab in SF at Jeanne's...my ex again refused  me to rehab at home with the children....
  Memorable readings at Jeanne's in SF....Parker....several Roman A Clef...
  The Ex went back on her promises of equal custody and an evil judge - Jean Valjean's - sided with her
  Surprise at the Evil and Brazen Lies from adults who should know better
  Spine surgery and freedom from most pain!!!! 
  Rehabbing in a home in SF.....went around Jeanne's old haunts and walks...charming neighborhoods...
  A TERRIBLE mistake to leave my house w/o being ordered to do so! 
  (my ex should've moved and been with her criminal-- 18 arrests, one felony conviction
    - Jean Valjean's judge - mixed with Cotton Mather -- thought nothing of such a 
parent-model - infinitely unjust and frustrating!)
 Re-connected with one wonderful old friend - who repaid many times over
     goodness I brought her way several decades ago! Truly, bread cast on the the waters....  
 Jean Valjean's Judge (ignores the letter AND spirit of the law)
     - an ensuing long missal to the Calif Supreme Court is in the works ....
  UNJUSTIFIED, unreasonable separation from my children, except on weekends.... has been the bane of my
  existence from this year onward...
  Resumed programming and software engineering...a very good intellectual discipline.....
  I remain FULL of art for future work, and satisfy myself for the present with revisions of previous work,    
  ....and small commissions for stock for artwork to come..... 
  
2012

many fine weekend outings with my children:
   Legion of Honor in SF - wonderful Rodin sculptures aplenty!
   Palace of Fine Arts in SF - indigenous tribal art exhibits... wondrous Impressionists  
   and Dutch Masters!     a tour of SF Bay historical-Mission-Mexican history places
   for my son's class project...
   movies a plenty, and frankly the greatest enjoyment, aside from the few I've seen
   by myself has been seeing them, except for a few, with my childen, and a few with
   a dear old friend...
                           Merrigold Hotel, 
                           John Carter
                           Skyfall
                           Argo,
                           Sherlock Holmes A Game...
                           Cloud Atlas,
                           ParaNorman,
                           Big Miracle, 
                           Anna Karenina, 
                           The Hunger Games, Snow White and the Huntsman,  Brave,
                           The amazing spider-man,
                           Madagascar 3, 
                           The Hobbit, 
                           Hotel Transylvania,
                           The Avengers, Lincoln, Lincoln Vampire Killer, The Life Of Pi,
                           The Grey
Seeing my eldest daughter during the holidays - otherwise an uncommunicative -  daughter -  at the end of the year, was such a pleasure!
house-hunting with a benefactor..... successful!!!
.....found, moved 3+ hours drive from the SF Bay area - to nearly as lovely an area as the Santa Cruz Mountains, and, another chance at a startup - the 3rd time may be the charm ....already experienced two ill-fated ones - 
.....1 year each - in the dot-com era...
.....Along with many thousands of others....frustrations with WFB - now resolved to file 
a suit in Federal/State Court....

Pace Pace Mio Dio – Unending Light
אין סוף אוֹר

That pond you see ringed by willows drooping
and bending, with their natural care
over a pond of ponds mirrored,
as becalming as any we have ever seen,
and like ponds seen at any age -
from when we children dreamed -
and even flew, when waking -
until, year by year, we are
as we are now,
still glimpsing the unseen, and, more -
now we even see oblivion -
guarded  by these paternal willlows,
and not too many fewer clearings, either -
to roll, and chase, and play with our children
who see no unhappiness unless Dad's not
watching or letting them sport -  
begging to throw bread crumbs to them,
then startling the poor ducks or birds
who humour them, I think...
and, after awhile, I shall nod off... in such a place.

Time Management: A synopsys recently provided to me:

1. Make three lists, with 5 tasks/goals on each, of all your goals and projects, the first for the most important, the 2nd for the next 5, etc.

2. divide all the items on list 1 into smaller pieces,
- very small pieces if possible - 10-15 minute pieces -with prerequisites for each piece.

3. do at least 3 small _pieces_ each day on the most important, and if time permits, on the next item on the list.

4. Move items from list 2 onto list 1, and from list 3 onto list 2.

5. Have an activity available for the other side of the brain, if one has had to spend 1 hr+ on a stressful activity. Spend at least 30 minutes/day or throughout a day, breaking up more serious work with timeouts for more playful or humane pursuits.
