So today is May 25th, National Tap Dance Day. It is kind of ironic in light of a few facts. One, my blog started off talking about my dancing in the closet when I was a kid. Specifically tap dancing in the closet. Second, I had just sent a video to my husband yesterday by the Syncopated Ladies. This is a group of very talented ladies, doing a tap number to “When doves cry” by Prince. I sent the video to him and let him know that I want to do that! So today he was researching how to make me a tap board. It is just a small platform, for lack of a better term, that I can tap on. We were looking at a couple of YouTube videos and making some plans so I can start learning, when all of a sudden we learned it was National Tap Dance Day. I really do think God has an amazing sense of humor.
I am thinking that by the next celebration of this holiday, I need to be a tap dancer. I already have my tap shoes, as they are a holdover from when I lived in San Jose. I had just started taking some classes through the rec department when we had to move. I guess it is now time to dust them off and get them ready for a new challenge. The closet will no longer be my studio. It is funny, I guess this will be part of my journey. While it may seem silly or even a stupid goal when you look at the problems of the world, for me it is just another step in becoming the woman God made me to be. A woman with a tender heart, who lives honestly and tries to reflect the amazing relationship that I have with Jesus. Is tap dancing a part of that reflection? Crazy as it sounds, I totally think so!!
