Dance and Desire and Friday Bling!

Dance and Desire and Friday Bling!

Have you missed me?!!

I have missed you, not having had much time to write or journal… and wow… I know that writing really grounds me and centers me, and journaling daily keeps me focused and gets all those crazy spinning wheels in my brain to slow down when I can put the pen to the paper! Then I can make sense of all my creative ideas, all the daily chores, and even the crazy cartwheels my brain does… so now I am back to the page… and here for you this Friday!

Whew… a whirlwind week, down to California, a week full of dance with Tribal Fest, teaching 2 workshops and a huge performance with Gypsy Caravan Dance Company and The Caravan Project band, which was awesome! Plus I performed with the FAB four… oh my heart was a fluttering!

A video and more on that will be coming, but first, a HUGE shout out to my dancers—photo

Congrats to Christine Haviland (New Zealand), Nina Martinez (Australia), Amanda Richardson (Wisconsin/ US), Cinzia DiCioccio (Italy), and Deirdre Macdonald (Scotland) for finishing their certification course in Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance ® Teacher Training Level Four… amazing…
