what have I done

I start teaching dance to Tess and Adelle's classes at their school today. I'm a little nervous to teach 24 1st-3rd graders. I just have to keep reminding myself how good I am at making a fool of myself, then I feel much more calm about everything. Adelle's class will be all 5 year olds and there should only be about 12 of them. Phheeewww! Here are some pics from this summers dance class taken by the fabulous Granda.

The online magazine Small has long been a source of creative inspiration for me. A few months ago my friend Candace introduced me to another cool Dallasite, Christine. While we were all getting to know each other, Candance casually mentioned that Christine was the creator and co-editor of Small. I tried to act cool, like I meet creative superstars everyday, but the nervousness made my tongue and brain swell so I ended up mumbling inept attempts at flattery until Christine had to politely excuse herself from the incoherent conversation. Anyway, I love Small and I am so excited about this gem of an article.

And this fun little nugget on page 82.

my daily dose of drama

Tess's dream...

an upstairs and her own room.

The hate mail I receive when she is casually denied her dreams.
