Today was the first day of Dream Boogie Class with SARK. Eight weeks of online community, mentoring and inspiration. I feel very excited about this class:)
This is the photo I chose to post. It makes me smile to think about the day I dressed up as Kwan Yin as part of the birthday challenge celebration, the weekend I performed at my very first open mic.
About me, I have spent the last six years after burning out from science teaching, exploring my inner and outer worlds. In this time, my marriage fell apart and I have been up and down and all around, boldly experimenting and then running away and hiding under rocks. I've lived in a monastery, worked on a farm, studied carpentry, creative expression and local food issues and studied music for a year. At a singing workshop at Esalen in Big Sur, I commented on how I didn't know where I was going next, just kinda wandering around and he replied 'You're not wandering - you are on tour!' And so I bought six hundred dollars of equipment and started playing at rest stops and street corners and wherever and the Pixiedust World Tour began. I feel a bit sad because my own fears and doubts rob me of excitement and motivation at times over the past few years and I think of giving up and doing something more traditional again. I dabble and I long to throw myself into it 110%. Consistently. And see what happens. I am happy to be here and look forward to being a part of this community gathering support, giving support and learning to support myself to take out the tour bus and don it with flashing lights and streamers and a big horn and invite people to jump on board with me, scattering magic pixiedust throughout the world like on a never-ending mardi gras parade, laughing all the way.
Next stop: right here, right now in Boogieland! (I posted a link to Suit of Armour, click now)
