I have a good selection of workout clothes from dancing, but we normally practice in sports bras so shirts are a major necessity at this point. I’ve been doing some shopping and my favorite place to shop for gym gear is Lululemon. The problem with Lululemon is that they rarely have sales. Not only do I need shirts, I need new shoes too. I mean I don’t need shoes, but I really want some new shoes. I will be taking a trip to Nike Outlet soon.
A sweet soul was taken away from this earth this weekend. A great friend and amazing dancer. I remember Victor as always putting in his own flare and flavor in our choreographed routines when we were all supposed to look alike. I remember Vic throwing in a head whip here and there and a kick when no one was watching. But I saw hi m. I saw him for the kind person that he was. I saw him for never giving up on love and always loving to the end. I saw him for how much he loved to salsa dance and how passionate he was about it. I saw all the effort he put into extra practices and cross training in different styles of dance to improve his salsa. I loved Victor Alvarez for being a friend to me from the very first practice we had together 5 years ago until now. It’s hard for people outside of the salsa scene to understand us Salseros. It’s hard for non Salseros to understand why we practice almost every day of the week sometimes getting out of practice at 1 am or later. It’s hard for non Salseros to see why we go out social dancing at least 3 times a week. It’s hard to understand how this hobby can be so expensive – paying to go to compete and perform at congresses and paying for crazy costumes. I feel blessed to be a part of the salsa scene/community/family. I feel blessed that I could share this experience with you Victor Alvarez. Victor you will never be forgotten.
Don’t forget….. when you are dancing away in heaven, practice hard because when I get there, we will finally compete together.
Te Extranos mucho. Dios te bendiga y descanses en paz,
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;Trusting that he will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonable happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next, Amen
