Life is not the same without the love of my life...dance. I was walking by Madison Square Garden today and noticed The Rockettes up on the big screen and thought to myself..."I should TOTALLY audition for that." haha, ok, so I am not going to (sorry to disappoint, Sarah) but I do plan on taking a ballet class atleast this weekend. My body is craving movement!!! Below are some of my favs as well as some great reminders why dance is GREAT. I heart DANCE.

I got on the subway tonight and couldnt believe my eyes! The ENTIRE subway car was covered with forest designs with a waterfall and everything! I actually felt like I was out of New York and back in sunny so-cal at Disneyland waiting in line for the Jungle Cruise. I peeked into the next car and saw an under-the-sea sub adventure. What a dream! My commute home tonight was the BEST it has EVER been. Well, except for maybe the Charlotte Diamond night.

So, there I am. Sitting on the uptown 2 train heading home after a long day at work. Out of the corner of my eye I spot a dead-ringer look-a-like to my favorite singer of my childhood - Charlotte Diamond. I immediately thought about how jealous I was that Megan Dachtler got invited up on stage in 1991 at her concert at the Civic Center in B-town. She was always a lucky girl. I believe it was for the very popular hit "Love Bug." I laughed to myself thinking that I havent even thought of Charlotte since first grade and now here she was - right in front of me in the crowded subway car.
Then my eyes shifted to a man in a yellow rain coat. I couldnt believe it. His outfit was the EXACT costume I wore for "The Fisherman and His Wife" - an obvious hit at our Buena Vista Elementary school play in 1995. I remembered how pissed I was that I didnt get the lead role and had to wear the UGLY yellow rain coat and carry a fishing pole.
What are the odds? At least I was entertained by the funny details of these childhood events in my head on the way home. And realized that I must have been a very jealous child.
