1. Some simple flexibility worked today and helped put one of my most anxious students at ease and we had a good conference because she was relaxed.
2. I marvel at all the details that must be attended to during dress/tech rehearsal for the Shakespeare Showcase and marvel even more at how many things need straightening out and at how rough and chaotic things are and I marvel the most at the confidence everyone has in the midst of the chaos that everything will fall together and there will be a good show. The mess will get cleaned up.
3. That dress rehearsal was over five hours long and I was pretty hungry afterward. I decided to try a chef special at Jade Palace and ate a plate of sizzling shrimp and scallops. I especially enjoyed the bites when the ginger asserted itself.
