until there is only...the dance

First, Thank you to Sher from Beneath the Crystal Stars for this lovely award!

I will tag Elena-Lu and Patty Ann

This is what I wore to work yesterday after changing out of the black velvet dress...obviously I was inspired by dancers of the '70's and '80's with these mmmm cozy legwarmers...they actually do keep your legs warm.

I really wish I had joined the dance team in high school. I love dance and love dancing, but I didn't like the people who were traditionally on the dance teams. I really regret not trying out because now I look into dance classes and they're so expensive! Moreover, I shouldn't have let those other girls determine what I wanted to do for myself.

I have always had an intense love for music and have always needed to move to it. In band, I started out playing the clarinet but then switched to percussion (which is what I wanted to do in the first place), and I'm so glad I made that decision. I needed to be closer to the beat...the heart of the music.

"Rhythm is something you either have or you don't have
but when you have it you have it all over"

I know I just posted this quote before, but I just feel like it is perfect for me. I don't care what kind of music it is, if it has a good beat I like it and just want to move to it...having it "all over" as Elvis would say.

Dance is inspiring and exhilarating. You can express yourself through the movement and just let it get into you. It's taken me a long time to realize how much dancing is an integral part of who I am...

"Dancers come and go in a twinkling of an eye, but the dance lives on. On many an occasion when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists. I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing then it is the eternal dance of creation. The creator and the creation merge into one wholeness of joy. I keep on dancing... and dancing... and dancing, until there is only... The Dance."
--Michael Jackson

Thank you darlin for your sweeeeet comment!

There's definitely something bout sequins this season that makes me want more of them!! Well, a girl can't have too much glitter right?

Haha, my guy is just the same, everytime I say I'm goin for a haircut, he gets all jumpy and whiny!! Weird. The best part is before I was with him, I had all kinds of hairstyles, long, bob, curly,you name it, I've done it! So you're growing out your hair right??
