Over the years, I’ve attempted to de-clutter my work room and create space for my dance.
This gained urgency at the end of last year, when the Supper Club, my dance group, lost our practice venue and everywhere else was twice the price.
With our first dance night of 2015 coming up fast (this Thursday!) sorting it out became extremely urgent. (Fortunately, I work well to deadlines…)
My work room has evolved from this (in 2011)
through this (in 2013)
and this (2014)
to this, as of noon today: Welcome to The Oasis!
(Disclaimer: this photograph may have been taken from the most flattering angle and may not show clear views of the fabric and yarn storage or of the [very] dwarf date palm)
I now have enough room for 4 or 5 people to belly dance in my studio (Yay! I can call it a studio now! This makes me unreasonably excited!)
I now also have only the supplies and other bits that inspire me to create. That has taken a lot of work; hand-in-hand with transforming my inner creative landscape. I am now much clearer about what I do and don’t enjoy, and what sorts of creating call out to me. I’m looking forward to heeding that call and having some fun!
In the meantime, anyone want some beads?!
And roll on Thursday night 🙂
