Still, there are things I want to do today, so I'll try not to ramble for too long. I saw Janet last night after a long time of not seeing her and I missed her soo much. It's funny, I was nearly ecstatic - I guess I miss seeing people more than I thought. We're all living such separate lives now, it really becomes a joy and a treat when we can spend any amount of time together.
I have to say that despite working hard, longish hours and being very busy with dance, I feel utterly satisfied. I imagine this has to do in large part with the fact that I've been working hard to keep my life balanced. I try to have dinner with other friends every once in a while, although the majority of my non-work, non-dance life is spent with Ravi. Things with him are.. magical. I don't want to attempt to describe the depth of the attachment we've developed in the past months, but it is both comfortable and sturdy. To have found such a person, who I can truly say is both best friend and boyfriend, means I awake every morning with an even greater appreciation of this world than I used to have.
And with the rest of my time, I am trying to pick Milton back up again, continue decorating my room (it lacks only artwork now, and a rug), and begin work again on my brother and Julia's quilt (long, long overdue). Life continues at a steady pace. I'm trying to find time to do leisure reading, as difficult as it is, and am currently working my way through "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" by Harukai Murakami. I'll try to update a little more often in the coming months. I hardly write in my paper journal anymore, and I do want to continue documenting my world as much as I can, in any medium possible.
That said, I'm off to the SJ Library to find Milton books, and then I'm not sure what's in store for me, although I do know that I'll be having a wonderful dinner with Janet and her friends this evening. Tomorrow, hopefully I'll see JT and hang out in the city a little before going to the National Philharmonic of Russia/Olga Kern concert at Davids Symphony Hall. And that will be my weekend :o)
