Belly Dancer Dreams
I'm doing this exercise for The Artist's Way and thought it would be fun to share, meme-style.
If you had five other lives to lead, what would you do? Don't overthink it -- just jot it down.
1. Belly dancer
These are in no particular order, by the way. :-)
I'm really enjoying belly dancing. It's probably not obvious to anyone watching -- remember, warrior belly dancer face here -- but I like the way it feels in my body. The movement feels truer to who I am than any other dance I've attempted, which again, sounds more impressive than it really is, because the only other things I've done are jazz/tap and gymnastics. Well, and yoga, but that's different, not really dance. I am very interested in being more serious in my approach -- more classes, maybe and maybe breaking away from the Parks & Rec classes. I have a secret wish (that won't be so secret now) to be part of a tribal troupe. That would require some serious weekly practice and I'm sure more than one class a week.
I'm worried about whether or not I'll have the time -- I've been writing a lot in my morning pages about where my priorities lie right now. Income-producing activity aside, what I'd like to do is write, priestess in my coven and community, get more serious about belly dancing and learn to knit. How do I fit those things in with being a full-time mom and having a job? It makes me feel all whiny. I love my kids and husband to death, but there are days when I fantasize about how my life would be if I had neither.
