Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes and Dreamers!

In my excitement over my clever power point presentation in yesterday's 101 blog, I failed to notice a typo!  Kevin Maddox will be out next Wednesday June 28th (not July)! My bad!

On another note, while I have your attention, last night's master class with Porter Grubbs was truly magical - it was exactly what I expected even though I couldn't "describe" it for you. 12 dancers showed - on a leap of faith (as requested) and the end result was an hour of glorious physical exploration and connection: a breath of fresh air and welcomed departure from the expected. So out of the box - and therefore greatly furthering.

Nothing like all this rain in Atlanta to remind me that I was JUST in Portland this past weekend. Ah, wet, soggy nostalgia.

Not one to say "of a certain age" or that I'm "plenty nine", I embrace my age with a tremendous sense of pride of accomplishment and gratitude. I made it.

And look at me! I'm not entering into my golden years... give me my sword!  My determination has not faded nor slowed down, rather it's picked up speed because I've been around the block enough to know when purpose is gearing up not down. It's taken me 6 decades to learn how to differentiate the small stuff from the big, the pot holes from the craters - and while I still will make mistakes, I can more gracefully chasse around the landmines of life than in my youth (when I used to step on them continuously ha! - but that's how we learn, right?).
