Snow and Soup Mode

2 Comments

It’s a snowy Wednesday here in NYC. It’s the second storm of the week, with a 3rd expected to come by Sunday…I do love the snow and although beautiful to look at, it is very cold… I have been so cold that I am in this “soup” mode. I  have been creating and cooking these soups, and then bringing them in for the boys to eat… I think I have created a soup addiction here at the Saddle… Today was white been and mushroom… topped, of course with grated cheese… delish, and good for you…

Anyway, I am with Jonathan…We are seated at the bar working on our Flaming Saddles  Bible…on the computer, pecking out our rules, regulations, and FS” isms”, one letter at a time… neither one of us is particularly great at typing, Jonathan is better then I…but yes a painstaking process… all of this is very interesting and very important to me… It’s the brand, and this work has to be done and will be done…

However, I am distracted… yes distracted…

There is a dance rehearsal going on… a dance rehearsal with 2 new Bandits, Chris and Justin…

They are working on the choreography … Dane is teaching them, totally confident with my specific timing, precise steps and purposeful movement… I love it… I can tell the new boys have training… great focus, breathing, and body alignment…they worked hard, picked up the choreography and were approved for 2 dances before they started on their free style…

I have danced and studied dance my whole life… my training and talent have led me to create this style of dance, this brand…To watch someone teach what you have created is humbling… I am so proud… I am also grateful…

Proud of what I have done, and grateful for the people I have surrounding me…

However, I now look outside and am distracted , yes distracted… once again…

I see the snow, the snow, and yes it looks so very cold…

Soup I find myself saying, soup… falling right back into” Soup” mode…
