Recap: Morning calisthenics, sitting, and rehearsal for three. A very musical calisthenics building on over three years of work improvising in various forms and formats with this configuration.
Afternoon: shopping and preparation for Regina's Birthday BBQ.
Evening: delicious BBQ with corn on the cob followed by X-Box 360 racing games (I got whooped) then a Chess game (Kevin got whooped) and a rematch -- as yet unfinished:

Song of the Day
The Missing Lens (7.3M)
“What strikes me most about organizations is their regularity – the same scenarios keep happening again and again in the widest variety of settings – manufacturing, high technology, religious institutions, schools, community groups, government agencies, universities. The same patterns keep showing up, but rarely do people feel that they are living out a pattern. Each event seems very specific to their unique organization, circumstances, and people. It matters little that all over the world, many thousands of people in all varieties of organizations are having the same experience. The lens we are missing is a systemic one. We don’t see systems, we just see people. We don’t see system spaces, we only see the effects spaces have on us. So when things go wrong, we blame what we see.” - In the Middle by Barry Oshry
This reflective improvisation is inspired by and meant to be a representation of that active tension that drives harmony between the bottoms (bass) and tops (high melodies.)
