Tonight went really, really well! :D 
There weren’t as many people as we’d all hoped, but I’m still happy w/tonight, and had a great time. ^_^  The people at Big Sexy (both on and off the stage) are always marvelous, the music was faboo, and it’s always such a joy meeting and getting to know other local performers. ^_^  Plus, while I didn’t put evvverything into my act I’d pondered (that seems to happen a lot w/me, as I kinda go blank when I get onstage), I still think it went really, really well. ^_^  And to top it all off, I got lots of appreciative comments, lots of cheers and positive energy through bright, smiling, happy faces, and made a few delightful connections w/some audience members, which is always a blessing. ^_^  
And to add icing to the cake, I’m super grateful for the bit I made in tips (someone actually gave me a five! o.O XD), ‘cause now I have money to go to renn. faire. tomorrow to be a mermaid, and maybe even get some basic staples I just ran out of- like bread n’ milk. :)  (It’s the end of the month so I’m not just broke, I’m brokEN, which means any money coming in is a HUGE blessing. ^_^)  Now the key is to resist the temptation of eating at faire- no matter how hungry I get! ;D
Oh!  AND other goodness might be approaching on the horizon!  (But I don’t wanna spill the magick, so until things are set in stone, just keep your thoughts tuned to a positive vibe for me. ^_^)  One of the great things about performing in a beautiful, local scene is that sometimes people see you and like what you do, and ask you to be a part of other awesomeness. :D  So.. I remain optimistic that more good stuff is on the horizon. ^_^
-And now, speaking of horizons, I don’t wanna be awake to see the dawn tonight, so it’s time for me to go to BED!  Tomorrow morning comes quick, so until Sunday, sweet dreams, blessed Tumbl-ers! ♥

This is always a crazy, spectabulous night- for performers and audience alike!  -And tonight I’ll be performing two improv pieces (back to back) at this event, alongside a bevvy of other talented, unique performers (who offer everything from singing to burlesque). :D  
Plus it’s always full of truly amazing, lovely, talented people, and there’s even a pre and post dance party, as well as a raffle w/some super nifty prizes to win! :D  And guess what..?  It’s FREE! :D  (Which leaves you more money for tips, raffle, drinks and munchies! ;D)  
So if you’re in the Portland, OR, area, come on by!  We’d love to see you there! ^_^

Favorite Sword Tunes?

Regardless of your (belly)dance style, what are you favorite pieces of music for strong, intense, moody sword performances..?  Yanno, the kind of tune where you’re not entirely sure whether the dancer is performing for the audience.. or threatening it… ;D

Do tell! ^_^

fergusdrake asked: You look so pleased with yourself in those photos! The last photo is especially pretty! :)

Aww, thanks!  I’m not so much pleased w/myself as I am just pleased to be there. ^_^  I truly LOVE water, and if I could have been in the middle of that big, tall fountain w/o being sky-rocketed into oblivion, I -so- would have. ^_^  Water is my Peace.  My Liberty.  My Haven.. and in many ways, my Home. ^_^  

Thanks for writing! :D
