    Yes, but past tense. I'm saying that in my ill-spent early teen years I had pretty vivid hallucinations on weed and hash. That's the only point I saw in smoking the stuff. Then, at age 15, I took up acid, often in high doses, because I wanted more intense visual (and other) experiences. On my last trip (age 16) — a really good one — I resolved to stop all drug abuse. I wasn't much of a composer then, a few prog-rock style tunes notwithstanding, so I don't have much to say about the OP.

    But people who haven't used such substances probably don't know what the word hallucination means in this context.

    Do you mean the "real," that is to say, fictional, Edward Bast, the public face of the JR business empire? I have apparently forgotten about Mr. Bast's opera projects (other than his grade-school production of Das Rhiengold.) Might be time for a reread.

    You were posting on Amazon a few years ago at the same time I read JR. Had been putting it off for decades. Well worth the delay.
