In 2017, Patrick and I talked about the making of Four Last Songs, a movie very, very loosely based on Patrick and Stephanie and directed by their friend Francesca Joseph. I started recording the conversation with two recorders, but as it turns out the overlap was imperfect. As a result, I have four separate recordings […]
A short conversation with Christine about Patrick’s October 2014 visit.
Conversation about a drawing, and Norman.
Here’s a little recording I just stumbled upon. Patrick, Christine, and I were enjoying breakfast at the Busy Bee Diner in Ventura so there are occasional interruptions from our server in the audio. It was 8 October 2014 and Patrick had just finished his visit with me. We were on our way to the Santa […]

Several years before Patrick died he began sending me manuscripts and documents, boxes of them. During a 2014 visit we discussed these a bit, then shifted gears slightly to my own collection.

Patrick talks about a friend with an interesting background.
This is the transcript of a 12-minute conversation with Patrick, recorded on 8 Oct 2014. Man, I love hearing his voice. The recording is way too long to post here, unfortunately, so you’ll just have to imagine the sounds of our laughter over the clinking of frequently refilled scotch glasses, the zoom-zoom noises he used […]

Patrick begins this recording of 18 March 2017 explaining the meaning of Stephanie’s marker and what he’d like for his own. The tale then expands to the music festival and how their festival spawned a bunch of separate festivals all over the island. JP: So that will still there [Stephanie’s marker on the cemetery wall] […]
Here’s a Youtube video featuring Stephanie’s and Patrick’s good friends Suzy Bradbury and Misha Rachlevsky in a concert performance in Scotland. It’s a lovely, dynamic piece, about eight and half minutes long. You may recall that Misha conducted Patrick’s memorial concert in September 2017. Misha’s description: “This performance of Turina’s Rapsodia Sinfonica for piano and […]
This is the transcription of a recording from 2 Oct 2014 when Patrick accompanied me on a trip to Prescott, Arizona for the Prescott Rally. I’ll see if I can upload the recording at some point so you can hear his voice. JP: For each of the major European cities, what things are the most […]
In late June 2017, Abby, Julie and Rui visited California. In addition to the usual fun-for-kids stuff like Disneyland, horseback riding (three times, including once up to the Hollywood sign), going to the beach, and checking out the stars on Hollywood Blvd, we were able to visit with Julie’s brother, explore San Francisco, and go […]
Hey Patrick, it’s JP. I’m wearing that robe tonight, the maroon one that you and Ivonne bought for me when I came to visit in Palma—so long ago it seems, although it was really just a year and a half ago. So I’m wearing the maroon robe and I’m thinking about you. You know, things […]
