Used To Be

A couple of months ago #ThrowbackThursday came on someone's birthday so I posted an old picture I had to Facebook. I got hooked. I love looking at old pics and showing them to the people who were in them. So every Thursday it's a little treat to myself to scroll through my scanned photos and find something to share.

street perf spring 1993

This is from the middle to late nineties probably. I was a dance teacher. It wasn't my only job but it was my highest priority. In the spring semester we usually had our classes perform at a couple of local street fairs and this was one of them.

As I said on Facebook today, this somewhat casual looking scene used to be an important part of my job. My life and my job do not look like that anymore. I'm working toward changing that. This weekend part of my on the job training looked like sitting at a stranger's kitchen table with pieces of liver laid out in front of me and a barking dog across the room. I'm excited about that picture. I am retroactively excited about this picture. I am not at all sure how I feel about the way things change.

But then, I never am.
