Bounder bound and beyond

It's been a long while since I wrote in my livejournal blog but with my adventures here in Boulder starting last Thursday, it seems appropriate to resurrect my writing here.  It's been an incredible first three days and Rolfing classes start tomorrow morning!  Highlights:

Happy Thursday bike rides with hundreds of bikers after 10 in the streets yelling and being happy on the streets downtown.
First Boulder meal was 50%- because they had me wait four minutes?!?  Somehow the Indian food tasted better than it would have if I had paid full price.  It was alright- but naan, rice, veggie dish, chicken tikka masala and
Mourning bird next to his splatted out dead mate on the road- for at least 5 minutes he waited.  There are so many birds here- I live next to a bird sanctuary!
Floating cottonwood blossoms tumbling across the road.
Yellow gutters from all the pine pollen (ha-chu.)
The sweat running down my back in the middle of day while standing still!
John Butler's amazing Red Rocks Ampitheatre with native american dancers and singers doing the opening, in addition to two opening bands and the best show from JBT in years.  He played Peaches and Cream- first time on this tour (I've seen him in Dublin, Ireland and Seattle, WA too.) 
Nice evening with Japanese classmate at the Red Rocks- being able to be with someone and enjoy the music without needing to talk or really understand more than that.  It was an incredible experience
