Schedule Changes For 2017

January 3, 2017

  Happy 2017!  At 12:00 am January 1st, 2017, I was "worshiping the porcelain goddess", which was not my first choice of things to do while celebrating the beginning of an new year.  Apparently I'd picked up a bug that caused an upset stomach…and produced the unforgettable experience of getting rid of the old year's garbage to […]

Merry Christmas

December 24, 2016

CHRISTMAS… That one word evokes so much emotion in us all.  It takes us back to our childhood, our memories with our own children, and our longings for what we wish we could have…and what we used to have, and now have lost.  It truly is the best of times, and the worst of times, […]

I Do This Intentionally

December 17, 2016

  I realize I steer clear of life's catastrophes, politics, and all-in-all unjust episodes – basically most of the topics in the media.  I do this intentionally, as we are people, and people will do rotten things.  It's easier to be naughty than well-behaved…and overall, we take the easy way out.  All the horrible things that people […]

Walking Alone or With the Crowd?

November 4, 2016

When I was growing up and I did something the rest of the kids were doing, my dad would always roll his eyes and say, "If the kids jumped off a cliff, would YOU jump off the cliff too?"  I was puzzled; my answer was another question:  "If they all jumped, wouldn't there be a […]

Dances Cancelled

October 28, 2016

The Cubs are in the World Series!  Who’d’ve thunk?  They’re playing at Wrigley Field tonight and tomorrow night, and I know a lot of people will be watching the game – maybe I even will; it IS pretty exciting.  However, the dances I had scheduled for tonight and tomorrow night do not have TV’s in them, so I’ve decided to cancel the dances.  […]

Today Is It!!

October 25, 2016

  I’m not the only procrastinator in the world, although I think I’m one of the best.  Sometimes, time is UP and putting decisions off is a luxury we can no longer afford.  That’s happening as we speak – today is IT!  Royal Caribbean is taking back their unsold cabins from our group rate as of the […]

As The Seasons Change

October 13, 2016

What a lovely day already.  It doesn’t get much better than writing while enjoying the fresh sunshine, sipping cocoa-flavored tea in front of the fireplace (which is ON), gazing into the leaf-strewn yard, laptop in one hand and cell phone in the other.  Ah, technology…and Fall.  Which is here, in case you haven’t noticed.  Funny […]

September 30, 2016

Two weeks ago, I told you about Nancy’s daughter Becca, who was diagnosed with cancer this past April. Ten days later, this past Monday, Becca lost her battle.  I received the devastating news from Nancy and am passing on her email; I know her friends (especially in the dance community) will support her and her family, as […]
