Ah! And how! Life throws so many things at me sometimes, both good and bad. My weekend was amazingly jam-packed with life! I managed to; work for a client and get their website up and running, go to a barbecue, help host and promote a very successful event at my work, go to a friend’s welcome home party, learn coding, dance at a new and fantastic venue, and go to my work’s holiday party.
I always love meeting and sharing new experiences with people. The new venue that I danced in wasn’t like any place that I have danced before! It was located in what looked like an office building in the heart of downtown Seattle. You had to go down a side street, into an unmarked door, up some stairs, and then hang a random left. Boom! Out of nowhere there was a place packed with art, instruments, drinks, dancing, sound, and Burners. Take an old fashioned, gate-closing service elevator to the second floor and you’d see an open gallery populated with more dancers and art.
It was on this second floor that I got to perform. I danced! I don’t know what was up with me that night but I was really feeling the music. Aerial practice is helping me learn a whole new range of movements. After my performance, I had people coming up to thank me for putting on a show. Ah ah! I must be doing something right. It feels good to see people inspired by my movements! I’d like to thank Matt Freedman of Matt Freedman Photography for the great photo he took of me while I was dancing.
The camp, that threw the event, was made up of some of the most wonderful loving and kind people that I have had the pleasure to be around. I’ll definitely be looking them up during Burning Man 2013.
Speaking of Burning Man 2013, who’s excited for the new Cargo Cult theme?! I’m going to be developing a space man and alien costume for the event. I’ll be using the FX Prosthetic and Electronic Fashion Design books that just came in the mail to help me.
This week I’ll be; learning more coding with Python, working on client’s web sites, designing a costume for Bootie Seattle’s event next weekend, Aerial practice, learning makeup design, working on a new Burning Man Project and Burner’s Without Borders charity and art project, and working on my photography!
