If you're wondering where choreography was in that list of tasks, rest assured that part has been ongoing for weeks. Kathleen and I think/hope we're prepared for whatever the experience throws at us, and the choreography has been memorized even down to the details of the possible improvs. We're ready on that front.
It's Christmas Eve and Spider was just looking for the burning Christmas log channel to have in the background while Maria Rita sings to us as we begin to prepare dinner. The music is helping us feel more connected to our daughter, Terri Luanna, in Rio. She and her husband, Heron, are visiting his family in Brazil for the holidays.
All the details add up to a warm glow, and I'm going to go enjoy. I wish the same for you.
