— My new website is up and running! A big thank you to Nichelle Lawrence for her beautiful images. Columbians, if you’re looking for someone to help out with your website or show you the ropes of Dreamweaver, I believe she’s expanding her business here to include web design.
— I got a tattoo in Sacramento on my rib cage. Thank you to Amy, Raven, Julie, and Mr. Todd for sandwiches and distractions 🙂 It’s a modernized Bastet (an Egyptian goddess associated with music, drama, joy, and dance), some flowers native to Sacramento, and some hidden symbols;) Those in California: I had a very postive experience getting tattooed by SteveO of Something Wicked Tattoo. SteveO took a bunch of my random ideas and wove them together in something better than I could have ever come up with. Thank you, SteveO!
— NEW YORK! I am gearing up to spend a week in New York to dance in Bellydance Evolution with Jillina, Kaeshi Chai, Sharon Kihara, Elizabeth Strong, Heather Aued, and more! I’m really excited to be working with such talented artists. I am learning the choreographies now — get ready for drum solos, veil pieces, cane dances, tribal fusion pieces, and a whole lot of theater. While I’m there, I will also be dancing at “D’jam Under Je’Bon,” hosted by Kaeshi Chai of Bellyqueen! I am so grateful for Stephens College for letting me use their dance studios to prepare for both these shows.
Keep checking back — I still have more to blog about Sacramento and I will be posting while I’m in New York 🙂
