PHOTO FOR THE DAY

The Aerolite team recently traveled to California to participate in Reality Rocks. Geoff was asked to speak on 2 different panels and we had a booth set up with meteorites available for sale. Though there was a disappointing turn out, we still had a great time. One of the best days of the whole trip was spent with the Field Producer of Meteorite Men, Sonya, who was the ultimate tour guide. Our stop at The Grove Marketplace wrapped up a long day filled with an impossible amount of sight seeing.

TUCSON BALLET

Today I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Tucson Ballet's production of Swan Lake. I'm not much of a ballet connoisseur; having attended exactly one other time before today. I accompanied my Aunt, who is visiting from out of state, and my Mom as a celebration of my Mom's birthday (70th. And she's going to be totally annoyed I put that in here for all the interwebs to see. Hi Mom!) and the visit of my Aunt. We also chose to go because a friend of mine, Libby, is one of the dancers.

It was fantastic! Absolutely everything, from the stage dressings, costumes, music and, of course, the dancers, was perfect. All that power displayed so gracefully. Though I must admit I spent a good portion of my energy furiously searching the dancers to determine which one of the swans was Libby, who, once I would blink, would be mixed among them and autonomous once again. I would follow her progress for as long as possible, before I was distracted by an incredible lift, impossibly long leap, or the swirl of dancers. Libby of everyday life is pretty casual, fairly soft spoken, even, if you will, a bit unassuming in that she is just a normal person going through a normal life. But not so much really. Libby on stage simply transforms. She radiates grace and power. It is an incredible thing to behold. I now know what they mean when they say "stage presence". She has it by the bucketful.

We weren't allowed to take photos during the performance, so I have no images of today's festivities. I do however, have a couple of photos of Libby humoring me ("No, a little more up. A bit more to the left. Perfect, don't move. Hold it. Keep going...") during a break in working on the Meteorite Men Kansas (season 2) shoot last year. Anyone who can hold a pose like that without stretching and without falling over while wearing unwieldy hiking boots, deserves mad props.

Cowboys and dinosaurs? That's a new one even for me and I live in Arizona.

A taste of the Southwest. If you are ever in Tucson, may I recommend El Charro downtown? Mmmmm, tasty food and in one of the oldest buildings in town.

The chimes from this clock produced the most beautiful 15 minutes of sound. I was entranced.
