Do one thing that scares you every day!

Do one thing that scares you every day!

I am writing to you from what the Captain of this ship joking calls "the middle of nowhere." Out somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean.

And spontaneously I decided to act on one of the aphorisms that  I am trying to adhere to in this new phase of my life.

 "Do one thing that scares you every day."

So when they called for people to sign up for the talent show,  I talked Richard, one of our dance hosts, into dancing a samba with me.  We met at 8:30 to try to work out a routine of sorts, with Jorge making suggestions regarding presentation and entry and exits.

Then after a quick shower and a change into my flaming-red Latin dance dress and some dangly earrings, I was back up at the cabaret lounge (shown in the picture) by 10 for the show that started at 10:15.  The room was crowded. Oooohhh. Yeah- scary.

We were on second. I played Carnavalera from my I-Pod. It's a booming samba with a great beat, and we got through the whole thing with only one minor mistake that I think we covered up just fine. It's all on video so I will see if I can upload it to You Tube and link from there.

So there was my scary thing -and I made it through. I guess that won't count for scary again!
