A question about technology from the portability of grandeur in the form of a prelude and fugue [with performance notes]

[This work is something of a performance piece for consciousness. Since the form is uncommon, in this version I provide some performance notes (here in blue italic throughout).  The notations are like the dynamic markings and fingerings and bowing marks an editor would add as suggestions to a musical score.  The thematic elements of #technology, #portability, and #grandeur or hashtagged throughout.  Of course, some may prefer the urtext edition which remains mounted.  And some may prefer to ignore both equally.  As you wish.]


If anyone was wondering if I made it to Cape Canaveral for the launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour after making the NASA Tweetup list (“I could have missed the whole era,”) well, yes, I did.  Twice.   

And again my continuing journey requires an associative mapping through time to traverse.  Not precise, but necessary for me to maintain my location and direct my pivots.
