TC4 Shoot Across The Sky

Well the Earth is going to have another asteroid whizzzz pass and this one is named TC4.  Some will talk about how we could prepare {{{BIG MENTAL LAUGH}}} and all I can think of is how it is none of my business when the universe reshuffles my shape and of course I got the need to blog a Japanese Haiku Poem in its honour:

TC4

We’d need more than a hard hat

Delete, repeat, return… happy.

So many times I’ve learnt dance moves over and over, until I REPEAT them whenever I hear that music.  Only sometimes I see those moves and think DELETE!!!!  I then RETURN to the drawing board to do a whole new set of choreography, until I know I’ve gone bonkers, but happy.

Delete Return Repeat

We’re dancing tonight, my solo I have changed many times and enjoyed going bonkers and I’m happy to get up there in the Small World Theatre, to share freely what I’ve chosen.

Dance cane

Belly dance caneI was looking at YouTube to find a way to make a belly dance cane out of a garden bamboo cane, especially bending that little bit at the top.  I want to not waste/spend money on some import from hundreds of miles away.   However, I wasn’t successful for that, but found and loved this YouTube clip, all about bending really thick pieces of bamboo 90 degrees:

How to Bend Bamboo in a 90 degree angle

In the meantime I’m going to try soaking the ends of the garden canes in boiling water, see if that softens it enough to bend them round something, then letting them cool and dry.  I get the feeling this might work, might, perhaps?  As for the painting and decorating bit, well that will be a breeze and a joy.  Finally hitting the floor and twirling it over my head like a loon dancing of course!

Wait, wait, reforming ideas, now I’ve just found a winning dance without the saidi canes having to be curved at the end:

This also made me want to never cut my hair again and use it in future as a prop!

Remember to click on words in my posts that have lines under them, this will open up a link to images and the like to enhance my meanings.  Thank you.

 

A room full?

I want to remind people for the Hafla coming up in Cardigan:

Walk into a room full of people

I am dancing to entertain you, to inspire you, to let you enjoy being and so:

Centre of attention

I do not believe I am the centre of attention when I dance, you are.

Squeeze

Squeeze the dayBe happy now, squeeze joy onto this sunny or drab day, like you would if you could via a tube like that of toothpaste, get to the very last ruddy drop and squeeze the joy out of the damn thing, dance, if not in your body in your mind and be compassionate, be joy, be amazing! Yay!!

Carpe Diem! Damn it, Carpe Diem!!

Star Dust

What a lovely display of dancers, being all sparkly and wonderful last night at the Small World Theatre.  Rose and Mel did a great job of putting this hafla on, with many others helping make it work:  lovelies doing a raffle, others providing food for the dancers and a stall with refreshments for the audience.  Talking of stalls, there was some with costumes and dance knick-knacks, including a display of some very professional dance costumes from Zara’s Zouk a mother (Sandra) and daughter (Zara) team.

Beautiful friends, family and colleagues together, all talented with the ability to get up there and share the joy of dancing with each other and an audience.  Thankful that myself and my daughter could join in and enjoy such a jolly event.  There is a Facebook page for those who wish to support the group Dragonfly Dance.

Star

We’re all made out of star dust.

Reality

Reality as we perceive it

Perceive life well, live it and enjoy the crazy journey.

As for tonight in the Small World Theatre:  Our choreography to Pink “Fire” is practiced, yet still with plenty of individual interpretation (as is our ephemiral style).  So it could be a great moment with bits of randomness and in any case it will be an enjoyable dance in front of beloveds.  Have just created a Facebook page for supporters of our group Dragonfly Dance, only there’s nothing on it as yet.

Reality = How things actually are, rather than as they may appear in our unquestioned thoughts, this can and does includes everything that is and has been, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible.

Reality is always so much kinder than our unquestioned stressful thoughts.

 

Gods

peanutI recall the times as a youngster, well before the fear of heights, when I would quite gladly go and sit in the gods of the theatre to watch a play or dance or listen to the music practise.  Maybe me and my companion would be a right naughty pair during a performance and throw a half peanut down onto someone’s head below.  So sorry folks it wasn’t a ghost of the building or special effects, it was us theatre kids.

🙂 🙂

Gods = The top most deck of an old style British theatre, that was mostly only available to roam by cast, cast family and friends.  Oh and we would be up there to start the “Booooo!” off when a baddy came on the stage.

😦 😦

p.s.  So of course I believe in the gods, I’ve been there to laugh my head off!
