Today we walked at the Heard Natural Science Center, on boardwalks over standing water, while woodpeckers plied their trade among dead trees. A flock of cormorants perched in another couple of trees.

We ate Chinese food from the menu at a restaurant in which most folks selected dim sum from a singe dim sum wagon. I ate chicken with broccoli.

I worked on a very interesting hobby project today. We ate sushi tonight. I created a sample pack of sounds this morning. A cabbage butterfly in the back yard defied the chilly weather. Hollies were in berry. I thought about ways to make the new gurdonark music weblog I am building into an effective way to distribute netaudio.

I had a bad experience at emusic on my first effort to download an album, when I was debited two albums worth of credits after a first download failed. My first effort to ask customer service to rectify the emusic erroneous debit did not succeed,but I am hopeful it will get fixed on a follow-up now that I have sent a further request.

I developed an indignation over the matter, but then I realized it was a matter of mere business, in which I am in the right but the amount in controversy is but a few dollars. I then modified my attitude. Why lose composure over a small thing? I will treat it as business if need be--a contract to be enforced, not a devastation 8 whole credits in size.

I remember why I do not usually deal with this type of music company. I am spoiled by, a host of netlabels, ccmixter and even Amazon. But for my double credits I have a nice Bach lute song album for my troubles. LIfe is like a chickadee. It makes fascinating noises, and moves before you quite have it in focus with your camera lens.
