sin sun is out there, so close to my dance/writing studio and yet so far. Everybody seems to be on vacation – or heading there – but here I am, working non stop. Teaching – on line -, preparing choreographies for upcoming festivals (next in Istambul, this August) and working on two books, the new one and the 2nd edition of “The Secrets of Egypt – Dance, Life & Beyond”. And heading to the gym on a regular basis – duty calls higher than anything else.
If somebody dares asking me, one more time, if I´m on vacation, I sware I´ll squeeze their neck. Sorry, I´ll have to.
Now repeat after me: be a good girl; don´t complain; you´ll take vacations when you can. Work, work, work. So I do.
Taking care of “The Secrets of Egypt – Dance, Life & Beyond” 2nd edition. With pride, surprise (how many parenthesis can a book handle?!) and perseverance. Enjoy a sneak peak:
“I was heading for a Journey which would propel me into un-imaginable heights or simply crash me like a bug. Being the bad loser, it was clear that defeat was not an option – no matter how many obstacles, enemies, traps and blows I would receive. This was a decision. Although I – now – know a percentage of our LIVES is already marked in the stars and cannot be changed by our (partial) will power, I am also aware that a MIGHTY decision born from the depths of our Being is as powerful as the Universe (because it´s a part of it).
Falling and getting up from each fall – stronger than ever – became an obsessive habit; resilience became my middle name; COURAGE to face my worst fears and, in particular, my biggest successes rose within me on a daily basis, dancing tenderly to the sound of the “muezzin” calling, the voices of demons and the delirious reality of Love – the ultimate Law, Truth, Meaning for everything (including Dance).”
