By the time I began driving home after The Nutcracker performance, it was after sundown. I try to not drive except during daytime hours. It's my experience that I am safer driving during daytime.
I have noticed that everything diminishes with age. Good coordination and reflexes are two things that are needed when I am driving. Both of these two things lessen with age. That's why I hardly drive except during daytime hours.
Some other drivers on the road with me find it hard to tolerate my driving speed. If the legal speed limit is 65, I hardly ever drive over limit and this makes some fellow drivers a bit angry. Of course I drive in the right side slow lane at these times.
This was a fine performance of The Nutcracker. It is the 48th season for the California Ballet and it shows!
The last time that I went to see The Nutcracker was in 2002 while I was battling with cancer.
I especially love to see the reactions of kids in the audience and the way young people dress up to attend The Nutcracker.
