A Two Year's Journal

Based on writings by the composer during his Paris sojourn from 1976-1978.
I started this journal during the Paris years from 1976-1978, but I have continued to make entries from time to time thereafter. My Online Diary is a kind of extension of this journal. I have decided to publish various writings from the original two years in Paris when I started the journal.
