Winter Camp, view West to Sparta Butte, South Wallowas . . .
Stable high-pressure weather and good, safe snow. What more can one ask!
To get up to the wilderness from here is another two-day trek.

New OCTET—Rally on 7th Ave. score
the 4th in the popular series of cs-music.com
CIRCLE/SQUARE editions . . .
This is the notoriously difficult piece.
The otherwise exemplary
ASKO ENSEMBLE managed
to mangle beyond recognition
at its premier on February of 2005
Since then, unfortunately, it has not
been played again.
Too bad, I say to myself, every time
I look at the score!
The lines of winter
lie tightly together
like buds tucked close
against a leafless twig.
Stopping short of snow,
seeds of crystals,
of new ideas,
for the chance,
just the chance,
of an echo
in the surrounding silence.
