It is a gorgeous day here in sunny Lyons, Colorado. I just arrived home this morning after two days in Boulder. I am enjoying the birds, slight breeze, and the landscape with is turning green. The only downside to working from home is the annoying dog that barks all day. Today I am wearing ear plugs.
I stayed in Boulder the last few days. Spent the night before last at the Boulder Theater watching Andy Mann's new film, Rocky Mountain Highball. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was an excellent bit of climbing porn. It never got boring, and rather than just a spray-a-thon, it offered a really great story of the history of boulder in Colorado, complete with excellent cinematography, and a whole stack of stunning high ball boulder problems around Colorado, climbed by a wide mix of old-school climbers and young radsters. Really great job, Andy! To check out trailers and such, visit their website (click here). You can also read a more thorough review in a summer R&I (I'm not sure what month yet).
Then last night Madaleine and I went to see the Cirque Eloize at the Denver Center for Performing Arts. I'll write more later. But suffice it to say that it was a wonderful show. I didn't like it as much as I like the more traditional Cirque du Soleil, but the dancer/acrobat/singer/actors (each performer seemed to have all of these skills) offered a good show.
Back to work! I have much to do before I head off for my bike ride/meditation retreat next week. I will be busing (300 miles or so) and biking it (100+ miles) to Crestone, Colo., where I will meditate for 9.5 hours per day for five days. Yikes.
