I'm heading off tonight for New York City, to attend an event called Blues Blaze. It should be an incredible event with wonderful people and really exciting classes.
Renata and I will be flying in and meeting up at the airport to make our way to the Friday night main dance, while David, Nick, Jeff, and Annabel (whom I don't know yet) will be driving to meet us there.
Although I'm really excited for the event, I'm a little anxious about Saturday morning. They have level testing for the intermediate and beginner classes at 9:30 in the morning. Nine-thirty may not seem that early, but the late night the night before is scheduled to go until 5:00am, and blues is a late-night dance (not a morning, have-a-cup-of-coffee-and-go sort of dance.) I think we'll probably call it an early night on Friday, but I also don't want to leave too early, as there are only two nights of dancing: Friday and Saturday. Workshops are nice, but I go for the dances.
So we'll see how it goes. Most likely everything will be fine and I really have nothing to worry over. But if you get a chance, think happy thoughts for me.
