My work at the university is finished. I will see the students again for a short period on Monday afternoon to see the final result of their work and give them DVD’s with what they did and my performance.
I moved from the hotel to Mazem Kerbaj’s, a trumpet player and visual artist. His graphic work is wonderful. Bob is not coming, impossible to get an airplane ticket at a decent fare. So I am now actively preparing to do the piece alone. I met some of the other musicians. This is the other phase of this trip to Lebanon. This morning I was awaken by a very violent thunderstorm, I could not help thinking about the bombing of Beirut last summer. There is a very deep trauma imbedded in this place of the world. It gets into you.
