Rockin the weekend stuff, Tribal Shawls, and me!

Friday the 13th!  gotta love it…

Have you been wilding yourself after my last blog post? Tell you what I’m doing that makes me shiver and tingle! Writing songs..And volunteering  three hours a week at the Oregon Humane Society… And editing my new online classes for you….whoa… what a week it has been…

After Carol and I traveled to Las Vegas last weekend to teach at the Las Vegas Bellydance Intensive Festival…yep first time to Vegas (trippy city), and you know what? I played ONE slot machine and won… a whopping $4.90, and then I quit!


I was asked to judge in the So You Think You Can Bellydance affair! These dancers worked their butts off for this competition, very impressive… and great dancers! An honor to be part of…thank you Samira Tu’Ala…and thanks for having me teach at the festival too… Very well organized, lots going on, great teachers, fun venue, good shopping… We had a fantastic workshop… it was so much fun, and went soooo fast. Tribal Shawls is what I taught. The dancers were twirling and spinning and orbiting and laughing and it was a great and very fast workshop… meaning it was over way too soon… I so love teaching that I get caught up in it and could go on for hours! That’s what you do to me…gotta love that too…oh, I see another online class happening soon with shawls…

but first…

**Thanks Tierra Soul, for the great work and words!….

Serendipity is the result of discipline.

We all want magic in our lives.

You too….

You want to feel that your work and life has purpose and meaning. You want to be visited by inspiration, by miracles, by your muse. Yes, you don’t want to pass the days in drudgery and the endless mundane passing of days.

You want serendipity.

Of course you do. We all do…. but if you’re like most of us, your life doesn’t seem all that special and serendipitous. If you’re honest. Don’t worry though…. I have a secret for you: Magic can’t be found. It can’t be harnessed or chased…. except in the most mundane and disciplined places. Magic needs discipline and structure to emerge.



and how about trying this on?
