Quite a year, the epic journey continuing at https://markalburger2021.blogspot.com/
looking forward immediately to wishing it out and greeting the new one with Harriet and Cliff, the latter via Zoom,
having done the East Coast version 3 hours earlier -- augmented by George, Bette,
Sorrel, and Laurie --
Happy New Year!,
spreading around the world!
Linger w/ Cliff, determining that we'll celebrate anew in under 3 hours when the event officially hits us....
out for the
3rd on Mix Canyon, now west from

Further exploration into the
on the 51st and last day of fall,
high up 4 to 62, with general catch-up and editing the 8th page of the
Oh, You Faithless Scrooge-let!, Op. 344
over Alan Hovhaness's
Symphony No. 66 ("To the Appalachian Mountains"), Op. 396 (1985) and
CNN New Year's Eve with Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen, before the early celebration; and
Giuseppe Verdi's Ernani (1844, in a Metropolitan Opera / Luciano Pavarotti perforance, 1985),
the recapitulated Cooper et al,
a brief outside adventure with Harriet, and
year-end retrospective before the later. An eventful year, and here's to one much better ahead!
