Which Way Is North?

As I walked down my street today, my BIRTH-DAY, I looked up and saw this beautiful “sign,” and yes, anyone who knows me knows that I believe the universe is always sending me signs and roadmaps … I just don’t always listen.  It’s all about transitions.

Like most professional dancers, at a very young age I had a dream of becoming a  ballerina, joining a major ballet company, traveling all around the world doing what I loved, and getting paid for it.  By the age of 20 I was doing that. Then, I wanted to get married, move out of the city, and start a family.  By the age of 40, I had done that, too.

Next, I wanted to launch my own apparel line; design and manufacture, source and develop my own fabrics; present my line at places like Harper’s Bazaar and Lord & Taylor in New York City; wardrobe “Dancing With The Stars” and, oh yeah … meet the President.  By the age of 50, I had done that.

Then the road I was following rounded yet another bend.  On my morning walks, I found myself dreaming up ballet combinations, thinking of pilates and yoga exercises, and imagining a place  for me to share what I know.  In this past year, I have created that space, SteelCore Studio.  It’s a small movement studio where I can help guide others with information I’ve been lucky enough to have been given.

And so today, as I launch a new website and embark on my first blog, heading again in a new direction, I hope to find something helpful to say, to share, to offer to others who are also looking for their new direction, their true North.  It’s all about transitions.
