Me and The World

June 17th, 2006

Today I belly-danced in the Fremont Solstice Parade in Seattle. My second year. It was a success! We were 200 bellies – talk about powerful! Two hundred beautiful strong women IN RED costume, are not to be disregarded and I think people were stunned to see so many of us.As we were dancing awesome choreography in unison in four lines down the street, people were cheering and clapping, and I heard one woman shout “GO GIRLS!! TAKE OVER THE WORLD – RIGHT NOW!!!”

Hmmm. Take over the world…. As I look at the previous post titled “A girl who could…” and I think of my accomplishments in life and the things I am about to do, I realize that in my own little way, I have.

I close my eyes and visualize myself as a captain of my own ship eyes on the horizon, ready to take on every fabulous opportunity that comes my way.

I am a strong woman. I can do anything. Wow. (We all are!! We all can!! Double wow!)

I’m having one of those weird moments of realization again. Belly-dancing usually does that to me.

Italy here I come!

    Hey go girl! Being an Expat is fun. I’ve been living here in Mexico for 4 years now and I love it. Don’t think I will ever go back. I look forward to checking your blog from time to time to know what you are doing. Enjoy life. Great Aunt Manja

    I miss Seattle, I hear the weather has been “okay” but of course not as warm as here in Torino. We had to get an air conditioner to make it through this summer.

    I can’t wait to go back next Spring.
