This was me a few weeks ago, blissfully ignorant of the hurricane that was about to come and demolish my life (oh my, us goths are so dramatic sometimes!). Alas, it is true folks. I have endured some personal loss recently and am not my usual dancing self. However, hurricanes have come and gone in my life before, but this time I have more shiny tools in my toolbox!! I am older and wiser and have the ability to learn from my mistakes. Although it is always comforting and familiar, I will not dwell in the darkness this time.
I WILL YIELD TO THE PRESENT.
Here’s to looking at every day as a new opportunity!
In the meantime…
April is here and it is gorgeous outside! I love walking in the cemetery by my house in the springtime. This month, I am busy working on my Essentrics certification, teaching lessons and creating choreo for upcoming stuff. But first, I will be performing here on Sunday, April 11th. All proceeds go to benefit the Women’s Daytime Drop-in Center of Berkeley which is a place where homeless women and children can go and get a meal and a place to sleep. I really could not pass up dancing for such a good cause. And of course, Ashkenaz is such a historical venue (I was recently reading an article about Jamila Salimpour teaching there in the 60’s and 70’s).
This is the place where I track future performances and announce updates in the Blackhoodygrrl world. There is also bits of poetry, musings and eye candy, always keeping with the theme of Sacred Dance.
