Hold off any hardware purchases, especially notebooks or tablets, until we see the reviews. These sound like “winners” to me. A game changing piece of hardware.

FUN: On a children’s dance recital — observation #3

Ever hear of the guru’s of the human performance movement talk about “the zone”.

It’s that magical time when the stars align and all is right with the world. Or at least your part of it.

At this dance recital, if you watch very carefully, you could see it.

A young child, mostly girls, would have a practiced routine. And, every once and a while, they’d “get it”.

Maybe it was the music striking their ear put them in sync. Maybe it was the endless practice. Maybe it was the crowd.

But you could see it.

There would be a realization on their faces that I’m doing it. And, I’m doing it well. And, it’s fun.

Then a big smile would break out. They may be sweating, panting, and exhausted. But they had done it. Whatever it was supposed to be.

That was worth the sore butt from sitting.

Hope I have a day like that some day. Hope everyone does.

I appreciate them sharing that moment with me.

Made me smile too.
