A day.

So I'm back in town for a couple days: came home Saturday afternoon and planning on heading back later tomorrow. We (the three of us and robin) had tickets to see Kodo today at Symphony Hall and tomorrow I'd like to stick my head in to work briefly and catch up a *little* bit.

The show was phenomenal. I don't think that words are nearly adequate to describe the performance. I had seen them with [livejournal.com profile] kazmat about 15 years ago in Worcester and remember it being great, but obviously my memory of it had dimmed over time. I had seen the show listing ages ago and gotten tickets then, so we were in row C right off the stage. Their precision - especially for drummers! - was unbelievable. If you ever have the chance to see them perform, do so.

After the show we wandered over to Douzo for some sushi and sake. It's not exactly cheap, but it is damn fine food. We need to find some of the sake for the house, I think. The dessert menu is a little lacking (imo), so we wandered off to Finale's to finish off the evening.

The downside to the day is that my father passed away quietly last night in his sleep. He hadn't really been *there* for a couple days - he would respond if spoken to but otherwise was curled up sleeping. Everyone is sad, but this was the best possible ending.

Thanks for all of the hugs and well wishes and sympathies.
