Trying to unwind

Just thought I'd share some of the fun things I have been doing to unwind from the rather stressed state I've been in lately...

***Watching/listening to Joshua Bell videos that are on his website. I liked this one just now -- his facial expressions are wild! ...and of course the music is wonderful. I got back into listening to Joshua Bell yesterday when I was remembering the time he played in the L'Enfant Metro station in DC a few years ago. (The article I just linked won a Pulitzer prize. Ooh -- I just found the full audio recording of that performance!)

***Swimming in Lake Wylie, courtesy of a serendipitous invitation from my friends Mary and Phil this morning -- very refreshing!

***Going to see "Karate Kid" yesterday, and reveling in the delightful-as-always Jackie Chan...not to mention the excellent new talent in this film, Jaden Smith. It was wonderful, though at times brutally real.

I don't have a lot to add right now... time to go eat a very late lunch and read the Sunday paper...
