I danced “AO” (“Alpha Omega”) today. I’ve always loved that routine…until it gets to the end. I’m not as confident and not as in love with the movements the final dances, but I hope to learn to appreciate them. My Nia application for licensure has been submitted, so I’m on my way. I spent some time today mapping out how I’d like to spend my days. My theme for the summer is “The Joy of Movement in Creating my Sacred Livelihood,” so I’ve been tweaking my vision of how I’d like to spend my time, the most precious resource. I’d like to spend 4 or 5 hours a day working on my classes and workshops (learning, developing, marketing, teaching, etc.) and a few hours a day working on my video and writing projects, and a few hours a day working on theatre projects. Sounds like heaven!
I believe it’s time to let go of the idea of Joy Station (the studio that I had conceived in 2009). I think it will manifest within this new framework that wasn’t possible at that time. When I work on my Executive Summary, being free from that concept will allow me to perceive the vision of my Sacred Livelihood from a more inspired and practical place. I am not now who I was then; the life that I long to create is still being formed as I gain knowledge. As I said, I am tweaking my vision. C. Dawn McCallum = See Dawn of the Dove. I would like all of my branding to reflect these words: vision, early light, peace, art, nature, earth, fire, air, water. I am seeking a vision of what that would look like as presented in the form of a website, marketing materials, appearance, image. I want to become the embodiment of that vision as long as it allows me to fully express who I am, and who I am becoming as I live an inspired, meaningful, fun, and rich life within my community of friends and loved ones.
