Sword Roll

My dance troupe is getting ready for Desert Dance Festival in September. One dance I am doing...or, rather, we are doing, is our sword dance. It is great fun and involves me rolling on my stomach over to my back, then over to my stomach again, all while lying down on the floor and balancing one huge, heavy mother of a sword on my head.

As I write this, sadness: no friendly face in the crowd, the one I always sought out and smiled at.

And still, I dance.
