Some odds and ends from the weekend.
A night and a day of taiko practice as we head towards performance dates. I now have one blister on each thumb from holding the drumsticks. I have to dance in one of the numbers, and I’m reminded of one of my mom’s stories of me when I was about six years old, taking ballet and tap at the Y. In one of the routines, I went left while the rest of the group went right. I hope not to repeat this kind of mistake at our taiko performances.
Pinky hosted a very excellent, fondue-laden Scrabblefest. Edwina loved me. I liked watching the Scrabble game and making comments on the sidelines. It felt like years since I’ve seen everyone, so it was such a delight to be there.
More to come this week.
