What did YOU do on your lunch break today?


Well, I fought the wind, pavement, and pedestrians to get a video of today’s dance darnit!  The wind was so strong it was blowing over my speakers and heavy bag! I mean. . . you work really hard on some choreography and then you try to get an accurate representation captured on video and well, damnit! . . .nevermind I don’t want to talk about it. Excuses are bullshit.  All of them. You may quote me on that.

I really love the siren blaring at the appropriate moment.

    “I loved the dance and the wind and the zombie pedestrians. How often are we walking past someone who is feeling something powerful, and pay no attention? There you are in that wind tunnel, tossed about, and they walk through as if on a conveyor belt.

    I wonder how outrageous you could be before someone reacted.

    I would have stopped.”
