appreciation

I've noticed lately that this blog has become largely about me and less about dance as an art form itself...but I suppose that is the nature of this outlet for my writing, and there are other times and places where I focus on other things (exploredance for real performance reviews, magazines for quality writing, winger for more thought out kind of things...etc) so I do apologize for adding this post to my list of self reflection...but what can ya do, a blog is a blog...most of what I write on here does not take me hours to ponder and write, so it is what it is...

Today an interesting potential opportunity came up that could be quite exciting. I won't reveal details because there's a good possibility it won't happen, as these kinds of things often come up and then bail out as too good to be true. Particularly with the person who presented it to me, who I admire greatly. For the first time in my life, I have someone important who has far more faith in me than I've ever had in myself. I realize that I'm quite lucky to have that and to have her as a mentor, but sometimes I can't even fathom what she's thinking...I don't know how to go on without giving more info so I'll leave it at that for the moment as a to be continued...

I cannot express my gratitude and appreciation to this person for everything, and yet I get nervous when she believes more in me than I do because I fear I cannot attain her expectations nor my own.

More to come at some point. Still sick, and taking it easy a bit this weekend...

Your mystery mentor sounds very intriguing...
