Do you remember....

I remember the first time I ever saw Riverdance & I also remember the first time I ever saw The Josephine Baker Story (both on TV). Both times were in the early - mid 90's and I remember them because they had a similar impact on me - the glee feeling! I am not a dancer, professional I mean but I do dance in my living room, more like Josephine that the disciplined Riverdance Irish dancers. 
Discovering Shala's Rabbit Hole ignited that similar feeling in me again. The excitement that you know has purpose but you are not sure what that purpose is at the time. In 1995 I didn't know the connection I would have with Riverdance or Josephine Baker later in my life (if you believe in 6 degrees of separation that is)! So Josephine returns to me, I've found her here. I'm finding meaning in all my experiences, past & present.

“…I improvised... Each time I leaped I seemed to touch the sky and when I regained earth it seemed to be mine alone.” Josephine Baker 1906 -1975
