A gratifying weekend :)

From time to time I like to take a moment to simply express gratitude. I have three items for this little thanksgiving celebration: A friendly email, a kind shout-out from a blogger, and a satisfying photo shoot. I just got home from DC, and I’m tired from the drive, but I wanted to write briefly while the sensation of fuzziness is still fresh. “Hi Devon:  I checked out your site today, and I linked to your film clip. I...

New York, New York!

Well, time to get back in the saddle. I’ve not worked or travelled much for the last six weeks, and it’s time to get out of “vacation mode.” I’ll be in NYC this weekend and Houston next weekend. The first week of August I have some work to do with Fabscout (Suite 703 this time), and then I have my August break (yes, I’m still committing to taking a weekend off each month), which will be in fabulous...

Give it a rest, would ya?!

So, I have often said that taking breaks is important, but if you have ever looked at my itinerary you will know that I don’t do this often enough. Burn out! OMG! One reason I blog is to hold myself accountable: If I put it out publically, I feel more obliged to stand up to my ideals. LOL I am going to commit to taking a weekend off each month. It will either be the first or last weekend of each month. I have already published...

Compare and Contrast

It’s funny how certain conversations seem to happen in batches. This weekend I am visiting friends and seeing clients in DC. Last weekend I was dancing in Greenville, SC and Asheville, NC. I was booked for the latter first, which was a fundraiser, and since it interrupted my weekend I decided to book the former to have something to do. My good friend Roxy C. Morecox is a widely celebrated female illusionist, and we talk pretty...

Confused dates: What’s up with 10/22-25?

Okay, so I guess I’d better stop trying to think people aren’t paying attention… LOL I thought I’d be able to get away with a little experimenting without causing any confusion, but now that I’ve received the eighth or ninth email about it, I suppose I should explain what is going on with October 22 – 25, 2009. When I advertise I have been placing my ads two weeks in advance. I wanted to branch out...

Home, sweet home!

I’m home!! Wow, what a long trip… Got up 22 hours ago, spent the day driving and the night on a train… I am so happy to see Charlotte, NC that I could just burst. My kitty was waiting for me (im)patiently. OH OH OH! I just drove my car around the block! YAY! Sméagol thought me a real ass for being gone so long… This is what I came home to:

A little friendly competition

One of the questions I received boils down to this: Are dancers who travel or work together truly friends, or does competition prevent that? That depends on a great number of issues. Scotty and I are definitely truly friends, regardless of the money we do or don’t make around each other. We help each other in many ways, other than splitting the cost of travel. We collaborate in various ways, talk to each other about problems or...
