I love that stop so many memories flood towards me when i am there sad, happy and it just sets the tone for my journey back to my ever so dear Cleveland. Living in two cities is not easy you tend to miss more then you think you do and the fact its that close to you makes ever so much more missable! I arrived early to Cleveland and it was beautiful skies and amazing weather! The Air show was in town so the rawr of the engines filled the sky along with the bustle and hustle of the city! I headed to the Double Tree By Hilton Lakeside for class, checked in got the room started and sat alone for some breakfast. I enjoy eating alone with a book it gives me room to think about my day. I headed to starbucks and go a coffee then to the office and got some things printed even do i still wore black hair people knew who i was. I headed to prep the room for the class to start and put some music to help me move a little quicker. Shinny things were set out, papers, sign up sheet, water and the white board is full of info and flyers from The Mission Boutique and Dean Rufus House of Fun out for the girls!
The gals started arriving and it was nice to see familiar faces and new faces, I had 11 students they all seemed amazing!
We move forward with the class they were attentive and curious asked questions and participated in class very thankful for those students they even took notes :) They all seem very amazing to start.
We did create a persona called Diamond Daisy, She was a gun slinger from TX running from the law and all her burlesque numbers were about westerns. I think so far that was a plus right?
they seem to have connected to the whole idea of burlesque now let's see whos is going to be the star student, I hope all of them really.. They were a few i particularly liked alot for some odd reason they gave me a good feeling!
Towards the end of the class i found my self getting emotional about the past and future of what i do, I realized alot about that moment and i think i opened some peoples mind to what somethings are to me.
I got to see my friend Krista and Josh along with Solei and London their children sooo cute! Later i headed out with Tannie to have dinner with her family good restaurant till i got sick from the food, but headed back to Pitt around 9:00pm got there to my friend Ken and Houston then went to see the new house after that i came home and passed out so hard it was a little pathetic.
I woke up Sep 2 .........I have been in bed all day...........no so interesting is it?
I called mom and she got all the presents i sent and sounded very happy i have been in bed reading about the lecture i will be part of next week and working on some thing here and there online....
I have been prepping Voodoo Baby's new number, It has been a technical challenge!
not as easy as i thought but i plan to seek out some things online to assist me in this endeavor
