I needed to create a writing space at the warehouse facility C has occupied for decades. And so,I had occasion old to immerse myself in all sorts boxes, files, films, tapes(!) videos, memorabilia, old instruments, obsolete technology, road cases, wardrobe cases, staging equipment, etc, etc.
There is/was so much stuff. We took the opportunity to trash about a ton of it. I found a note I had overlooked in a package sent from a guy who did me a favor a couple of years ago. Finally answered it, with apologies.
I found photos of events and moments I had forgotten.
Like a luncheon in Paris, 1976 @ Matignon, in C's honor, (we had performed 2 concerts at Le Hippodrome). I'm chatting with Rudolf Nureyev in the shot. With Margot Fonteyn! He's joking about wanting to be in a rock band. At that point in my life, I'd never seen a Ballet. I know now this meeting was pretty much wasted on me, totally clueless.
Well, I have a photo anyway...
