6:45 – Rise. Sit outside on the bench by the HOD. As on previous days when I’ve done this, as I’m sitting there the lamps in the garden go out. I feel oddly privileged to see this.
7:15 – Sitting.
8:00 – Breakfast. Tom asks if anyone’s sick and only I put up my hand. Very embarrassing.
9:00 – Go to the office to log on and check the tube map for Luis C. I miss tai chi, another mistake.
10:30 – Begin lunch preparation with Christian. Lentils with potatoes, so a lot of potato peeling and chopping.
13:00 – Showtime.
14:20 – Complete lunch.
14:30 – Mariela demonstrates an exercise for the arms, using chairs. I’m very tired and finding attention hard. Afterwards I lie on my bed and read and nap.
16:00 – Tea. Croissants. I save one for Haru.
16:30 – Presentation of the Quality Exercise. There’s a moment here when I laugh, totally inappropriately, another moment of feeling-bad-ness. Then Zum/Big Time announce another performance, so we have to move fast. I’m surprised by how fast I can move, actually. Personally meeting with Tom at the back of the HOD.
17:30 – Zum/BIg Time performance, I’m assisting Tom R. Moments when I have much greater clarity of attention than any performance recently, just attempting to hold the group and the audience in my field of vision as long as I can. Then breaking down the room and sweeping the floor with Tom and Riccardo.
19:00 – Dinner. Haru and the Four Riders of the Apocalypse perform The Stick, then Alain performs with choral accompaniment, followed by Big Jabato Zum and Hall of Suffering and Happy Fanyulo for Riccardo.
20:15 – Log on to collect email. Give money to the Treasurer.
21:00 – End of term, waiting for the meeting to begin. A fantastic double rainbow in the sky.
21:30 – Final meeting.
After the Final Meeting – I go and get some more money and settle with the Treasurer. Table moving. Talk to Haru, return to room and chat to Ignacio.
24:33 – Begin writing this. It’s already June, apparantly. Chatting, including the history of El Corne de Fanyulo from Luis.
