Day 278 – May’s mugging response…
I’m a little slow. I don’t look at my blog stats too often or where visitors come from, so it’s not too surprising that it took me over two weeks to find the link that May had made to my blog from her blog. She is a local Kansas City Blogger who, apparently follows my dances – thanks May! Anyway…talk about much needed validation… May is my hero. I bow to her. I’ll let you read why in her blog post which you can read here“Dancing is my Remedy to Mugging”
Today was my friend Debbie’s birthday. Her husband Kirk’s b-day is on the 19th so they had a party and invited us…so we danced there tonight. It was great fun, seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new friends. We even got to shake hands with some very controversial Chinese artists Gao Qiang and Gao Zhen who are doing their first show in the United States here at the Kemper museum http://www.kansascity.com/2010/09/15/2223901/kemper-introduces-chinese-artists.html Then we ran into our friend Sylvia Gross who interviewed them this morning at the KCUR studios. She was surprised to see them at the party too!
They didn’t get up and dance with us, but I think they enjoyed us having fun. It’s funny, I was feeling pretty down today…wondering (again) what’s the point of this project and if I’m just making a fool of myself. I haven’t come to any conclusions…but tonight I am again reminded that dance has the power to bring people together in ways no words ever can.
