Fun weekend at Sinbad Hookah yesterday! & Today was Amged's Daughter's Birthday Party where DJ Tom put down the rhythm so we could Bring it! I really think Amged's daughter liked me alot.  Too soon to tell ;-), but she would cry when I'd walk away.  te he.  Thanks to those guys for inviting me and OMG for Shik Shak Shok!

A Dance Form On Loan!

Humility is one of those values that gets lost in Belly Dance World.  I really can not understand this
:-/!  My own belly dance community refuses to acknowledge my existence, but makes sure I hear how I am excluded I am ;-)!  Well, that is alright.  Because the people that hire me tell me they oppose the "Superstar" Attitude, but love working with me because of its absence.  I have seen many of my dance dreams come true already.  So,any who, hush up about your own body, butt, hair, dance moves, and get your nose out of the air.  Instead, go take a ballet class a few times a week, and they will knock the ego right out of you!

Owen Phyfe & LBDC

"May you live your lives with the ones that you love, so that when you grow old together... you'll find that it is the lives of happiness and laughter that have grown permanant."  - Bard Owen Phyfe.

These words were written for my friend Hamish, by Ren Faire Performer Owen Phyfe.  Owen lost his battle to cancer in recent weeks.   Owen was a talented artist, with a resoundingly, beautiful voice.  Thank You Owen for leaving us with great memories, words, and art. 

Thinking on Labyrinthe Belly Dance today - October 1999.  Clay's creative concept began that year, and I am excited to see how it continues and grows ;-).   I am grateful to him & many others for thinking of me, and giving me opportunities along the way.  I don't want to be popular - Lord knows I am not popular - but just grow as a person & artist.  My journey has reunited me with friends from those first years recently.  The people that are the right people, and kindred spirits, have stayed true.         

Oh yeah.  And more famous words from my high school friend Scott Crain, "Officer, What happens at Ren Faire stays at Ren Fair!"  ;-)

Fallin' in love

I had so much fun at an Egyptian Baby Shower tonight!  It is really, really special when the people that know this dance ask me to come party with them!   Oh and duck duck goose with the kids was an order!

Dude let me tell ya!  It was a hot one.  I've caught wind that I "dance til I sweat."  It really only took a dance, and it was like hangin' at the sauna ;-)!  Well, some would not have made it through, and what a shame.  Cause we rocked it!  No treys, & fancy gimmicks, just dance!

April Showers!

Great weekend!  Danced at an Egyptian Baby Shower and then at Sahara Hookah.

To top it off, I studied with New York Dancer Ranya Renee!  In dance arts, I have learned it's more important to take direction, and not lead out, especially in a class with Ranya.  I like to get my butt whooped, as it is truly the only way to grow!
Praise God for such rich blessings!
