Don't Follow Me, I'm Lost
Today's ballet class was interesting. We had four dancers. Two first time dancers, someone that can dance, and moi. Wow! I feel bad. I'm doing center work and cross floor. That poor newbie. I would look in the mirror, try to fix my screw-up and notice that she was following me and screwing up. I needed a sign that said, "Don't Follow Me, I'm Lost."
I'm a pole dancer, ballet dancer, ice hockey player and research meteorologist. I live in Denver, Colorado with my wife of 20 years and two Siamese cats. I found the gift late in life. I was 52 the first time I went around the dance pole and 53 when I made my first plié.
