Open for Business


Hahahahah! Just kidding!

Really? Raise your hand if you actually thought I was out of ideas for dances.  Ok. See, I knew it.  You didn’t believe it for a second.

Actually I have more ideas than ever.  Now that I’ve really started diving into what interests me, I’m finding more ideas than I can work on at one time.  Of course a lot of my “ideas” are just inquiries or explorations that later may become part of something more developed, but nevertheless am finding the possibilities of what I want to do – endless. I think I’ve always had a lot of ideas.  I think you have a lot of ideas too.  But there is an ignition that happens when you start turning yourself towards them.  That goofy little hop? It feels good huh? Different? Go with that.  This is what I’ve been telling myself lately. Go with that.  There’s always time later on to look at it and say, that is just really not working.  But for now this is the voice in my head:  Make that mistake. Do that goofy thing.  It might just lead you towards something new.
