I have been downloading a very random assortment of music tonight. Musicals and dance and techno things. Go figure. I guess it is because I find techno music useful for dance warmups and things, though it tends to not be the sort of thing that I listen to when I'm listening to music. I need new dance music. Actually. I need to download a bunch of music and sort it and then put together some good CDs since most of the ones I have right now are sort of haphazardly thrown together and this does not make for good mixes... and definitely not useful ones.

I have been missing my dance studio a lot lately. I miss being a teacher and being a part of other people's lives the way I was at the dance studio. I mean yes, it was just a building, a place where people gathered for class and where most people didn't really know each other that well, but when you got the whole studio up on stage doing the finale of a recital, it became something that was more than a group of people who just liked to dance. We created something bigger than ourselves, and as a teacher, I was a part of that creation. I contributed myself and my time, and I made a difference in people's lives. And they made a difference in mine. (Plus there was fame and glory and performances to look forward to -- great for me, one who loves performing).

I miss it. I miss having something that had inherent in it so much physical and mental discipline, and simultaneously, so much emotional release.

I have the mind of a scientist and the soul of an artist.
