    As for skeeviness... I can understand that. ;) I'm glad though that we'll be spending most of our time dancing and in workshops. and that both of us are discreet, respectful and have no intent other than to dance and learn.

    Men are frequently reduced to the even smaller definition of "no purpose". At least women cannot be reduced to less than "mother".

    LoL.. wanna bet? I don't think we want to go in this particular direction. At any rate, everyone can be made to feel like nothing. It's no good.

    So I'm in Toronto now, ridiculously early after having gotten off the red-eye from Edmonton. I cried when we got here, because I was so happy. This is like the first thing I've ever really chosen, from the bottom up, and followed through with. This is so exciting, so mine, so totally GOOD, that all doubt or guilt that was perhaps tingling the edges of my conscience is now fully evaporated. I'm more tired than I've been in a long time... but this feels so good. In that "I know this is good for my soul" kind of way. My husband had nothing but supportive sexy things to say when I left, and my mom got all giddy when she dropped me off at the airport. I'm going to suck the marrow out of this thing.

    Have fun! Definitely take the classes from Ismael, Ana and Joel, and Hacha y Machete. If you've budgeted for a private, go with Ana-you will NOT regret it!

    Your description was pretty funny, too, Thespina. It's like you must've had a woman's magazine in hand while you were writing. Cupcakes? Check. Packing healthful and cute lunches that kids like? Check. Organizing closets/sock drawers and generally becoming more tidy? Check. Sex tips (oops! gotta call them "love" tips on the home subscriptions, lest little kiddies get clued into Mommy and Daddy's ... activities lol ) Check and double-check.

    Too funny. :lol:

    Well, I can't comment on your specific situation, but I have to say that your parent's approval or disapproval does matter if you are living under the same roof as them. When you are on your own and are financially independent, it doesn't matter what they say, but as long as you live with them, no matter how old or young you are, you should respect and obey them.

    As for the whole family approval thing, I think that I would never do salsa if it offended my wife or children. Actually, the reason I wanted to learn salsa in the first place was because I was thinking of my future wife, and I wanted to be able to dance with her. I know lots of men who for whatever reason don't dance with their wives, and I felt sorry for them, so that is why I wanted to learn salsa, so I know how to dance when I finally find my special girl...

    Some people talk about how sensualous (if that is a word) salsa is, but to tell you the truth, it doesn't mean anything if you are not in love. I see every single girl I dance with as just a practice until I find my ultimate love who I will dance with. No matter how beautiful or amazing the girl is, I see her as nothing more than an opportunity to get experience for the day when I find the girl I truly love.....

    Salsa is fun and feels good, but if it's not love, it doesn't mean a thing...

    Love is a big word and can encompass so many forms, rain. On the dance floor, I feel like it's one of the rare places I can truly be free, honest and peaceful. I can feel love coursing through me. It's coming out of ME. I feel like when I'm dancing, I can radiate love... and it means so much. I feel like love is something I can share with humanity. I can share love with a female lead (a lot of which i saw in Toronto, actually...), I can share love with a friend, I can share love with myself, I can share love with my husband. Agape, filos, eros, and everything in between.

    Consequently, something big happened when I started learning some traditional african movements... there is something bigger and more connected to something powerfully, earthly, universally spiritual and life-filled in those movements. I feel like the dance ITSELF stands on its own as its own meaning, its own power, and it's almost magical in a way. It creates a life-force, it expresses love, and it explodes art and passion all over the place. I don't want to wall myself off from experiencing that based on with whom I am or am not dancing.

    I'm soooo with you, thespina. That's exactly the way I feel when I dance -- I couldn't have put it better :cool:.
