So an interesting day.
I struggled with the rudder of my boat for most of the morning. There is a rope to raise it and a rope to lower it. I have to rig this set-up and find it beyond my intellect. However my engine mount arrives from the States, which is exciting.
Then I go to pick up a remarkable man: Ohyama sensei. He is here to lead a musical dialogue at the university. A dialogue, in this usage, is a performance of a piece, followed by discussion with the audience on the structure, social context, drugs taken, which brought about the music.
Anyway, he played the Cello suite No 1 by J S Bach and talked about it. Very good.
Ohyama sensei is a great guy and I would like to go on the batter with him around the pubs of Tiger Bay in Cardiff.
I then went to Zakimi-sho a castle near my house. They have lit it up for a reason not explained.
The sap is rising
