Here It Is.....

Today I celebrate my first pole performance.  I celebrate my body...just the way it is...because it is still strong and functional and sweetly at the mercy of my mind.  I celebrate the years of training in dance, Pilates and pole which have brought me to this point.  I celebrate my friends, family and teachers in the front row.  I celebrate that before I walked out I said, "Dear Lord.  Please keep me safe."  And before each difficult movement I said, "Dear Lord.  Please let me complete this."  I celebrate each and every ache and bruise I feel today.  I celebrate the significance of this song...significance which has followed me over 20 years.  I celebrate every woman who performed, every teacher who beamed with pride, every woman who cheered each other on and every gentleman who behaved with utmost respect.  
I am my own worst critic...always have been and doubtful that will ever change.  However, today, I can say...I am really so very pleased with what I see staring back at me.

I hope you receive this in the spirit in which it is intended.  This is very hard is extremely physical and deeply personal.  It is emotional and tied up into so many female facets it is virtually impossible to explain.  

Expect many more videos (God willing) in the future.  This level is considered "intermediate."  I am gleefully hopeful I can graduate through this program and continue to express myself in dance, married with strength and coupled with sensuality.

(I ask you to respect my choice, my mode of self expression.  I will not accept cruel or hurtful comments, so realize, comments of that nature will not be posted.)
