Well, I have a sleepy study and a nasty fight with medical insurance coming up, in addition to all the bills they keep sending me that I can’t afford…
but, I’m trying to stay positive
this weekend I had the honor of being able to dance with one of my biggest dancer inspirations/mentors/friends in a theatre show.
he had to drive quite a bit to be there for rehearsals, costume fittings, and the performance. There was no pay or anything, and he did this as favor to me, so I was worried about making sure that he had a good time.
It was a really small, slightly haphazard show, with intimate, older crowds that really loved seeing swing dancing. I was worried about whether he had enjoyed himself.
After all was said and done, he just looked at me and said:
“I’m glad we got to make some people smile tonight.”
And this is why he inspires me.
