How are you this morning?

I’m relieved. Last night I performed in a group dance piece – the first in a few years – because the adult advanced jazz class I signed up for back in November turned out to be presenting a piece at the local music and dance festival.

Yikes! I’ve spent a few months feeling humbled at the loss of my skills, trying to catch up with my class and now I’m finally finished with Abba’s Mamma Mia, but my friend and daughter promise me I performed better than I thought I would.

Aaaaaaahhhh.

Here are some interesting links I thought you’d enjoy.

Esme Weijun Wang turned me on to Believer Magazine. Check out this article on Jimi Hendrix’s dream of Electric Lady Studios.

Until next Sunday,
