My journals record an internal dialogue and have become a source of strength and self-awareness. As a composer, many of my thoughts are in music, not words, and so it seemed appropriate to record this stream of consciousness. 1981 was a turbulent year for me. My schooling was behind me and I had just concluded a two-year apprenticeship as Assistant conductor with the Pittsburgh Symphony.
