Red Echo

March 18, 2007

It’s been a quiet day here at Black Tusk Village. I spent a couple of hours this morning playing with my music system; after some adjustment I have everything set up within reach on top of the big blue flight case. After a couple of hours recording loops and playing with drum sequences, I even plugged in to the big speakers and played a song for everyone who happened to be in the living room. For the first semi-public demonstration of this system, I think it went fine.

We just finished dinner. I made tortellini in a vodka-based tomato sauce with sauteed andouille sausage and some stir-fried vegetables, with caramelized cinnamon mango slices for dessert. Seemed to go over well. I haven’t cooked for other people in some time, and it felt good.
