Dancing with a Bump
I had a good boogie last night for the first time in ages... the Brighton 'Barefoot Boogie' formerly known as 'Spirit of Saturday'. I usually go to the 'Wednesday Wave' dance of awareness which is organised by the same people, but haven't gone lately...mainly because of my ever-increasing belly :) But it was surprisingly easy last night, I guess because I was around people who are so accepting. I'm still getting used to all the unaccustomed attention from strangers re. being pregnant...my 'bump' only became obvious relatively recently so I haven't had all that solicitous stuff directed toward me throughout.
In touch with the seasons...
I'm going to an Autumn Equinox ritual thing at Queenspark later, curious to see what it's all about. I used to honour the seasonal festivals by going to a sweat lodge (obviously not possible in pregnancy :() but lately have got a bit out of touch with all that. It takes a real effort to drag myself out of the house these days, as last night too... but I usually end up being glad I made the effort. It's easy to stay in here in a cocoon of books and internet and music and not see anyone...
Felt good when I woke up this morning...I forget how good dancing is for me, and just being in good company. But I feel a bit low now...not enjoying G doing overnights at work at all. Just to think I won't see him for 24 hours. Though I do get on with a lot more writing and studying when he's not here! Did quite a bit of yoga exam revision today. On that note...I better hit the books again.
