Thinking: I’ve been thinking about what it is that I’m practisiing when I’m in conversation with Lee Miller for Midlifing: friendship? Improvisation? Talking? Listening? Also thinking about the nature of (personal) networking and my ambivalence towards it.

Practising: Dancing every day: slow dancing, improvised dancing, dancing to music.
