Sometimes, I really wonder what this thing called LIFE is really about. What is the lesson we should learn from all this?
It feels really good to cross off something from your bucket list. After I crossed off getting my photo taken in front of the San Francisco bridge I looked at my list for the next reasonable thing to cross off the list. I am not sure what my next adventure will be but it felt good to make my list shorter.
Someone posted on the social sites "the first African-American to win a supporting acting role was Haddie McDaniel for playing a Mammie. Last night Octavia Butler won for playing the same role." Interesting how we assign race, class and culture to everything. Is it too much to simply appreciate an African-American woman who demonstrated superior acting skills in a period piece? I'm not taking sides, simply suggesting another view.
At the biggest Cuban Salsa festival in the world I only danced a few times. I adore dancing more than many things in my life. Maybe I need a break? Maybe I need a muse? Whatever it is, right now my hunger and thirst for dance is low.
I watched this clip on youtube and was excited to find this guy in San Fran. I had one helluva dance with him. My group had not performed yet and he did not know I could dance. He held back until he figured out I could hold my own and then...well....THAT man has moves....
Yes, I said 'found him' and asked HIM to dance! I had to get him early before his line formed, LOL! Sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
I am overdue for a trip home. My baby sister is graduating this year. I will try my best to make it to her graduation. My father did not make either of my graduations but I want to be there to see her and my baby brother graduate.
One my fellas asked me if everything was okay after he saw my chat status. I told him everything was okay, just dealing with some things I thought I conquered from the past marriage. He then asked "you still dealing with that stuff?" After I took a breath I had to assure him that after a decade of being with someone, YES, you can still deal with some 'issues' 3 years later. I then had to realize his longest relationship was about a year. Perspective is everything...sometimes.
I am bored. I have stopped writing, journaling, blogging, dancing, etc. Every so often I get into my funks and I have to find my way out. While I have no desire to dance I crave the dance floor. My creative side feels stagnant. Maybe I should take a class? A crochet class, maybe? A jewelery class? Maybe I need to dig through my jewelry fixings and make something beautiful?
Until Next Time,
