Breathless is a state of mind,
The air that circumnavigates
the globe is ceaseless
in its circulation.
It will drift within and without
without your blessing
or your encouragement
or your wishes.
that you feel is
lack of time to notice
what the world is
doing to you ;
what you do to it.
The interaction is
The feeling is
15 days and counting! We fly to Scotland in two weeks! I’m scrambling to wrap up loose ends and make ready for a two-month sabbatical from normal routines. We were talking the other day about how strange it will feel to spend so much time without a schedule. There will be planes and trains to catch – sure – but overall, the time is ours to waste and wander. That is very exciting and very unusual. I am very much looking forward to the ponderous hours of people watching.
As promised, here is an approximate itinerary. All dates are estimations, and even locations are subject to whims, but this should give you an idea of our journey.
June 15th – June 21st \ Glasgow, Edinburgh, London
June 22nd – June 28th \ Paris, Nice
June 29th – July 7th \ Zagreb, Vienna, Salzburg
July 8th – July 15th \ Munich, Prague
July 16 – July 21st \ Leipzig, Berlin
July 22nd – July 29th \ Hamburg, Copenhagen
July 30 – August 5th \ Stockholm

A long time back we had thought to travel with a cello in the plane seat beside us, but that proved too expensive and potentially disastrous if airlines decided not to let a wooden person on the plane. I have heard some good stories about how pleasant travelling with instruments can be – and then I’ve heard some horror stories. The long and short is that we would probably need a travel agent to ensure my neo-viola da gamba makes it across the pond AND back. Instead, we will buy a student quality cello in Scotland then burn it for warmth before we crawl onto a plane in Stockholm and fly back to the US of A.
