ShareAlready I can tell I will love Rab, both the name of the island and the town where we sail into the marina we’ll call home for two nights. As small and quaint as it is, Rab boasts no less than four bold stone towers, all visible from our approach. Once docked, we all head […]

Belly Dancing at Sunset – in Croatia

ShareWe all have those magical moments of travel.  Moments that can never be planned but unfold spontaneously, bringing smiles at the time, and becoming our most gleeful stories to relate back home later. “Life is the dancer and you are the dance.” ~ Eckhart Tolle I’m still smiling from one such moment.  It blended two […]

Gratitudinousness – What I am Thankful for Today and Always

ShareGratitudinousness.  It’s one of my favorite conjured words. And it really works in that gratitude is such a BIG concept…I think it kinda needs more greedy letters “We don’t need more to be thankful for, we might just need to be more thankful.” Unknown Many who know me in my life and on Twitter and […]

ShareI was graciously invited by the travel site GotSaga.com to list five favorite highlights of the town where I live; Idyllwild.  But anyone who knows me at ALL knows I have a problem with minimalism and restrictions   So, the fifth item I listed was actually a conglomeration of Cultural Festivals/Indulgences.  I would like to […]

ShareI figured out my own YouTube account just in time to share some gems from this event I participated in and enjoyed this past weekend.  Which is a good thing, because when it comes to belly dancing and fusion dance styles, words just don’t do it justice!  The entire production was planned and orchestrated by […]

ShareRoad trips are always an adventure.  But gather five friends who belly dance together and you get a whole new synergy.  Here we all were, up in Sebastopol, California for a belly dance convention, and we decided to take a side jaunt in our little trusty rental car to the coast.  Several of us were […]

ShareSo, you may have gathered by now, after Belly Dance Beginnings and then showing pictures from my crazy zombie belly dance performance at Café Aroma, that I’m deeply committed to and enamored of belly dancing.  If anyone had told me three years ago that I would not only start baring my midriff in class, but […]

Crazy Aunt Club – I’ve Been Inducted!

ShareIt’s official.  I have evolved (or degraded) into the quirky, eccentric aunt everyone either wants or dreads or somewhere-in-between.  You know, the non-conforming aunt with no children, who has no social restraints imposed by fellow parents or schools or society to behave in a respectable and modest fashion. The one who travels, downs hot spicy […]

Belly Dance Beginnings

Share  I was the quintessential reluctant belly dancer.  I kept hearing rumblings and hints that Rachael, the sweet gal who worked at the natural foods cafe, taught belly dance classes, of all things, and I was being prompted to try it.  I would graciously excuse myself by making quips about how my belly “danced” on […]
