I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy~

Belly dancing brings me out of my head and into my body; Into every detail, every muscle and movement...I know some people don't get it, or respect it, or they think it is funny. But for me I am serious about belly dancing. And what is more important is that I am happy when I am doing it. For me it is not about being sexy~ doing some sexy dance. It's about rooting down to the core of the feminine. My whole life as long as I can remember I hated my body...and it wasn't until I started dancing that it all made sense to me, where I tapped into something greater. It is something I aspire to~ to dance impeccably where you are taken out of your body and into another state. What makes dancing beautiful is that it appears effortless...as with all things that bring us joy to watch where you feel this deep connection, where the hair stands up on your neck, where you are filled for that moment with elation. Those moments that artists create are filled with hours of endless time and discipline... I know it will be a long time until that day, but for now I am so grateful to dance, to come together as a whole, as women and to connect and intuit each other, to put aside all of our differences and issues and leave them at the door and move as one~that is a beautiful thing...
