I wonder how this relates, for you all, to the points made in Krista's conversation with John Kabat -Zinn about mindfulness?I work in music, and one of my closest friends is a musician [okay, almost all my friends are]. point being, I know what's it's like to be there at a public presentation which is new for the audience but which you've seen, enjoyed -- and evaluated -- many times before. the longer I do this, with music, the more i learn that both for the person on stage and for anyone I may tell about it, personally or professionally, it is important for me to be present there. meet work demands, yes, but be present, even if I have heard that song or that story a hundred times. I'd think twittering, however connecitng it may seem to be, would take away from this?
