Take Some Time Off

I'm headed up to Reno, Nevada today for a weekend of Tahitian Dance Competition. My youngest daughter will be competing, and while I won't be drumming for her (rules state that only house drummers will be playing this year), I'll definitely be cheering so loud for her that I won't have a voice by the time we come home on Sunday. And not just for her, but for all of my "daughters" (about 30 total) from our halau who will be competing this weekend. They've all worked very hard for this and I wish them all the best.

If you're in Reno this weekend, you can find me at the Blackjack tables on Saturday night. If I'm not there, I'll be at the Karaoke Bar singing Danny Boy.

Turn the volume up; the sound is kind of low on this one.

Dear Other Daughter,
Guitar Hero is packed and Mom is running some last minute errands. We'll see you up there tonight.

P.S. "THIS IS YOUR TIME!!"

I went to a Hawaiian dance exhibit a while back while in Hawai that included Tahitian dancers. What struck me was the rhythmic similarity between middle-eastern drums and belly dancing and some of this Tahitian dancing. There was what looked like an overlap between the two in places, just very different dress. Made me wonder.
