I don’t know how I lucked out, but man did I ever grow up with some amazingly talented people. Two in particular stand out at the moment. One is my brother who by day is a very enthusiastic music director for a school district, and by night (and day) is an extremely talented musician and scientist -a music scientist if you will.
The other is a woman who I met when we were both 5. Over the following 13 years we became best of friends weathering the trials and tribulations of growing up in a small border town. We even were in the same ballet class during the early days. While I moved on to girl guides and swimming, Lucy continued a life-long passion for dance and is now a phenomenal artist and choreographer. Her work is inspiring and a constant reminder of how much the human body can represent the human spirit.
Lucy is now 8 months pregnant. She also has a wicked sense of humor. It is with great pride, joy, and laughter that I have to share this video with you of Lucy warming up. Yes, that’s right. She’s 8 months pregnant and moving her body in ways I could only dream of. It’s a touch of envy, with a whole lot of ‘holy crap that’s awesome!’
