Greetings from Phoenix.
I'm finally getting the chance to look up this blog. Never blogged before. Just finished reading the blog, and apparently I'm not alone with not being computer savvy.
The last messages I read were posted a couple of years ago. I'm glad this site is even still up.
I regularly stay in touch with Kristi Nadvornik and Robin Powell. I make at least an annual trip to NYC. I always ask about the Nelis'. I hope the e-mail address is still good.
Work and being overworked has kept me more than busy the last few years. Seems when you work in a place that's open 363 days a year from 5am to 10pm, managers are expected to be on call all hours of operation. Changed jobs last August in an effort to work closer to home because of the crazy gas prices. The trade off has been an insane boss, who micro-manages to death and treats everyone like they are teenage children. It's VERY weird. Been moving toward starting my own business, and knowing that my curent job does not have much of a future has simply accelerated the entrepreneurial process.
In the last 24 hours I've given HHH a lot of thought. I'm guest teaching at a summer intensive next week, and one of the activities will be "get to know the teacher". I'm expected to talk about my career, show pictures and videos, and the like. I spent yesterday afternoon rummaging through scrapbooks for pictures and write ups of various shows. It was really fun taking that trip down memory lane. However, it was not as easy as I thought it would be to compile a pictorial of my dance career. But now that it's done, I'm glad to have all of those essential memories in one place!!
(that's not to say that I don't still have dozens of pictures not suitable for students to see) :-)
Hugs to all,
