Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

SuperDuper Flamenco Inspires the Hell out of Me

Today my flamenco class was great. I don't know why. Perhaps it is because she gave us a big rundown on the yearend show we will put on for the public. She told us about what each group of students will do. There are four groups... the newbies, our group who started in September, the advanced group and the super duper group... The super duper group are nearly professional.

Today after class I stayed to watch them for a few minutes. They were doing a dance with a sombrero (flat brimmed black hat) which was gorgeous... very showy, and very forceful at the same time. Flashing feet, squared shoulders. I believe they are going to do it as part of Ravel's Bolero... there will be much acting as if they were toreadors. It will be amazing.

We will have to work very hard. She told us what we will do, and there is a huge gap between that and what we already know. We will learn the first Sevillanas with arms... we can only do the feet now. We will learn the second Sevillanas with no arms. We havent started that yet. We will do the zapiatas with arms. We have JUST started on the feet. We will do the boleras with arms... that is coming along. We will do the Carmen with the fan. We havent finished that yet.

The list goes on! eep!! I do hope that I can practice my flamenco in my new shared studio. That my stomping doesnt drive anyone crazy... I am hoping there will be evenings that no one else is around so I can clack and stomp away.

Watching the super duper group of flamenco dancers is so inspiring. I want to dance like that, all proud, and almost arrogant. The fast feet and the chin held high. The elegant hand movements. It is so beautiful. I am already excited to invite people to see us dance. Even if they are not amazed by our group, they will be by the advanced and super duper group.

I am so glad I decided to learn this dancing.

back to work now,
doing great.

Here is my horoscope for Tuesday, March 2:

You appear standoffish when you fail to be clear about your needs. Maybe a little time alone will be good for you. You'll be stronger than ever once you emerge from this introspective period.

I wonder if that is about that Frenchguy... I totally was waffling on when I'd have time for him, but I AM busy. No, I don't think I'm interested, esp not now. Sigh.

First entry today was another letter to ob.

Haha! I decided to do a quiz from visiting Chaosdaily's diary, and hehe, I ended up as:

You're Canada!
People make fun of you a lot, but they're stupid because you've got a much better life than they do.  In fact, they're probably just jealous.  You believe in crazy things like human rights and health care and not dying in the streets, and you end up securing these rights for yourself and others.  If it weren't for your weird affection for ice hockey, you'd be the perfect person.

Well, I actually DONT have a weird affection for ice hockey (actually I admire people who can skate that well, but I hate the actual game... well at least the hockey rinks, and watching it on tv), so I AM the perfect person!! hehe... imagine, 64 possible answers, and I get CANADA!! That means i am living in the RIGHT PLACE!! :)

nitenite for the second time tonight. Gotta get some sleep to beat this cold that is TRYING to take over my body. I shall prevail I shall.zzzz wenchie, me. hugs-a-ola!

Haha! you KNEW I couldnt go to bed at only 5:30 am!! NO, i HAD to do the other quiz at that place, and the answer is totally right on. You should all go and do these totally cool quizzes! They are set up so that the possible answers bifurcate each time you answer a question, instead of having a whole page of set answers. Very cool. So as a book I am:

You're Watership Down!
by Richard Adams
Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.
