WORKING NOTE by Barbara Henning
"Tha Kita Thaka" was composed from material I collected in a journal while I was in India last summer. When I stepped off the plane in Bangalore I was turned up side down and around. Dizzy. I discovered that going in a circle -- as I often do wherever I am -- is in fact a sacred activity, unpatentable and continual.
