Exhausted Eudora

Thursday, October 16th, 2003

Well, yesterday was jam packed for me. On one hand, I had a pattern deadline for a publication (cross fingers, she said she wanted it but I know I’m not published till the issue is public). And on top of that, the Habibi Dancers had a fundraiser last night at the 5th Element in Grand Ledge.

I dressed up as Eudora again yesterday. I had not performed since Labor Day (August 31) when I went to the Renaissance Festival. I have not really pushed myself very hard since I started feeling better two weeks ago. I have attended one dance class, and did some aerobic scraping and painting of the house with my hands over my head last week (really… that was exhausting after a while).

So last night it was fun to put on all the glitter and glitz of Eudora, and dance again. It wiped me out, but I loved it. We had a sell-out crowd. My mom came with Fred, and Brian came, and several dance friends who are not in the troupe. And a couple who we camp with at Wheatland Music Festival (Brian sat with these folks).

I got home and fell asleep on the couch. I do this from time to time, it’s sort of a luxury to me. But usually I wake up at 3am or so and go upstairs to bed. This time, I woke up at 8:45 when the sun was streaming in the windows. Lucky us, we only had one day of rain when they predicted four! But that just illustrates how wiped out I was after dancing four dances last night. I tell you, dancing does not appear to be an athletic event, but it can be.

Here are two pics Brian took last night. The first is me as Eudora, and the second is the crowd dancing at the end of the show. We got as many people out on the floor as we could. On the left is dancer Maya, then me as Eudora, then the back of my Mother’s head. Doesn’t she have the prettiest hair you’ve ever seen? I don’t understand why so many people cut their hair short just as it becomes luminescent. Good thing Mom knows about real beauty and doesn’t bow to the styles of her peers.

It was a good time for all. I just wished I could have sampled some of that good food! Maybe another time, we’ll go out there and eat dinner. They have blues music sometimes, so folks we know perform there. Maybe we’ll go when they play. Could be a fun date.
