Every late January or early February I trek down to visit my friends in the Bay Area. I used to teach workshops there. It was a perfect time to get out of the rain and be able to enjoy an early hit of Spring. My friends Allyson and Leslie welcome me into their home and weâ€™d play martial arts and eat chocolate.
Two years ago, when I was just beginning my sabbatical I went down to just play. On a nice walk around a golf course, Allyson and I started talking and Todayâ€™s Step was conceived. Last year at the this time, the project came to fruition and we launch the Todayâ€™s Step app for smart phones.
THIS year I am keeping all my big fat ideas to myself. This year we plan on nothing but having big fun. No making future plans, no big important meetings, and no talk of â€œwouldnâ€™t it be great ifâ€¦â€
This annual trip will just be fun. A scrub at the Korean Spa, dinner at some fancy smancy place, and a show or two are on the agenda. I hear it is sunny and 60 degrees fahrenheit, and I am ready for for some good laughs with some good friends.
Iâ€™m putting some flowers in my hair as I head out to San Francisco today.
