In between today's list of details of preparing to enter zero gee--e.g., finding a Vancouver pharmacist who can concoct Zero-G Corp's required motion-sickness brew (if you live in the US, that is done for you), and scheduling a final costume fitting for Kathleen with brilliant dancewear designer Ainslie Cyopik, working out the final details for our Zero G Corp media release with Jim, taking care of last-minute Christmas details, and hugging my husband, I still found time to sit zazen in the sun today.  I try to meditate every day--but a day warm and dry enough to do it outdoors is always a gift at this time of year.  

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.
