have a best friend who is a celebrity
yeah, maybe not

I decided the better thing to do is to treat all of my friends like the celebrities they are. I often catch myself romanticizing about Warhol and his buddies, or Dorothy Parker & Co. or Gertrude Stein, etc. thinking how cool it would have been to hang with them and be a part of their amazing ring of friends. Then I realized that back in their day they were certainly unaware of their celebrity status (and historical relevance) in the same way that my friends and I are. I just need to appreciate and enjoy this while we are living legends.



Learn to tango (read all 4 entries…)
Certified Beginner

Last week I wrapped up my beginners 10-class course. First of all tango is HARD! I would actually dread going because sometimes it was very frustrating. I have to say though, after each class my energy level was always at a complete HIGH – and I was so happy I went. Forcing your brain and body to synergize is extremely important. It helps to build and strengthen neuropathways – which keeps things fresh, and in my case produced a natural high. How cool.

The key to learning tango, I think, is repetition – building and solidifying one’s repertoire of steps so that it becomes second nature and you can concentrate on the music and movement rather than thinking “ok, to do this step I have to do this…” – much like painting is for an abstract expressionist – or music for a jazz musician. There are similarities among them all.

So I will continue with it. Not yet ready for “intermediate” as my instuctor kindly pointed out :) If you have an interest, definitely give it a try!

Untitled

The show is sold out – as I knew it would be. Realistically I could pull this off – but not without lots of frantic arrangements and lots of cash. Sorry Gael, we’ll have to have that drink another time ;(
