In the midst of everything going on this week, I almost forgot that I had purchased tickets to see the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater tomorrow. Acornlover has never seen any of his choreography, and I haven't seen a performance in almost a decade. I'm so happy that we are doing this, as it couldn't come at a better time. Acornlover has been away on business all week, which has made it super tough for me to be home alone dealing with my own crap and then finding out about the death of my grandmother. I can't wait to go pick him up in a an hour or so and get some really comforting hugs. I think tomorrow will be a really great distraction and emotional release for the two of us.

Seriously though, if you're not familiar with Alvin Ailey and you love dance or ballet, I highly recommend you check it out if you ever have an opportunity. This is one of the dances that will be performed tomorrow. Enjoy!
