Henna magic, the legend continues

The local campus belly dance troupe, Mirage, hosted a hafla this past weekend. I offered free henna to all and sundry. I made a dollar in tips (woo!).

This coming weekend, Mirage has a public performance, and I've been asked by a couple dancers to decorate them as a bit of enhancement to the gorgeous costumes they'll already be wearing.

My daughter learned belly dance moves just by watching, which was eerie since she's two, and didn't get to sleep till eleven. Little party animal. She ate all the blueberries off the catering table, and tried to sing along with the musicians, especially on the really long high notes, and on the interspersed shouts of "Eee-oot!" and "Hey!" and such. Luckily this mostly induced grins from the rest of the audience.

    It sounds like you have found a creative and artistic outlet for your energies.

    YOur little daughter sounds so charming, what a joyful little girl she must be.
