day book-ended by Jack White and Mozart
Woke up at 7pm and went to the gym. I fueled up and got mean on the elliptical machine. Jack White's Blunderbuss kept me cranked up. And I sweated as I ascended into a morning bliss. Then a day with the daughters and trying to hold onto their ages, Sofia 2 yrs, Lucia 5 months, and almost too much goodness to bear. Then off to teach class and saw an advertisement for a book talk happening at the same time as the class on "Zombies On Kilamanjaro". Since we read "Snows of Kilamanjaro" in class this seemed like a nice serendipity and so I took the class to the talk, which turned out to be fantastic. The author took us on a slide show, book reading, up the Mountain and the writing was so good, especially with the visuals, that the whole class took the journey with him. It is amazing how often these portals will suddenly open. Another on the way home listening to Mozart. I'm so grateful for all of them.
