Starting Strong! (Portland) - US Book & Tango Tour

I arrived directly to Elizabeth Wartluft's Beginner's Mind Practica in Portland - my pre-funk to the Norse Hall Milonga just a few blocks away.  Elizabeth creates such a warm, welcoming environment for dancers of all levels of experience - a beautiful place to begin my US Book & Tango Tour.

The Adventure Begins! (STP) - US Book & Tango Tour

On Thursday, April 12th, I took off from Seattle to Portland, my first stop.  Testing out my Personal Camera Crew and the ideas that Jolene (The Meeting Maximizer) gave me, I was able to take a picture of myself in the car...

Move over, Hippopotamus!

Apparently, the Yellow Hippo was occupying Firby's (will have to check on the spelling) favorite chair.  No problem; he just pushed his big yellow rumpus over a bit and curled up like, That'll teach you.

A HUGE thank-you to everyone who pitched in to help me get going!  This US Book & Tango Tour is definitely a group effort, and I couldn't do it without your support.  Here are some key players who sponsored my take-off and journey:

   DIY Lettering
   Honda of Seattle
   Taskar Garage
   Personal Camera Crew
...and my first video with said camera crew!

The Star Card

Last Tuesday, I ended up at my friend Kendra Hayes' Workshop (at her Tin Can Studio), mostly because she told me it would be "awesome."  It was much more than awesome.  But what I didn't realize was that it was about Tarot.

Now, I was ok with the explanation of the Major Arcana: the Fool, the Empress, the Priestess... but when Kendra told us that we would each draw a card from the deck - shuffle it until it feels right, she said - I came face to face with myself.

Author, Teacher, and Student of Life

I'm so very excited to have completed this video compilation touching on the major events that have led me to this point of embarking on a journey literally "around" the US - an adventure into the unknown, yet somehow familiar.  Please help me spread the word by sharing and passing it on.  Thank you for your support and for helping make my visions reality!
