Saturday, December 10, 2011: Hi Sam! Its Saturday night and I am in line to cross the border as I write this. Your recital was amazing! GREAT JOB! All the hard work you put into the festival showed. You should be proud Sam! I am so proud! I am not happy with myself. I made a mistake and did not delete enough videos to open up memory on my camera thus only getting about 5-minutes of video from your recital. However I did take great pictures. Your ballet teacher had you in almost ½ the acts. Very impressive.

Saturdays are about you, not Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel). Today was even more special because of your recital. At one point I still wasn’t sure if I was going or not. As the next few hours progressed it became clear I was going to your show after all.

We were chillin’ most of the day, lying on the couch. Playing Angry Birds and Twister. Then it was off to the salon to get your hair done. Adriana is pretending to be upset with me so as to not to talk to me about this trip to Europe she took, which I paid for. I’ve seen this act so many times from her I lost count. Her not talking to me is not going to make me lose any sleep. We are all the better for it if you ask me. I long for the day when there is no more drama and all this is finally behind us. Until then, I have to concentrate on just enjoying the moments when they come. It’s all we have right now. This was a special day. It was your special day. I am so happy to have been a part of it. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH SAM!
