Burlesque isn't just a dance...


Recently, a friend read this blog. He enjoyed it, but he thought that it would be better if I revealed more about myself. Initially I was surprised by his comment. Then, I realized that he must have taken the blog's tag line to heart. I do claim that this blog is about my life, desires and dreams. Lately, there have been tales about my life and the lives of those I know. I have also provided my take on current events. However, I have included very little about my desires and dreams.

I have been holding back. I have hinted at what I really want and what thrills my soul, but I have refrained from going into too much detail. According to my friend, frequently, my hints have been too subtle.

To be sure, I never intended this blog to be a diary or a confessional. My nature is to be private while sharing a pre-determined list of public intimacies. For a time, I specialized in keeping people at a distance while making them believe that they had penetrated my soul. I wrote the blog the same way, somewhat like “writing burlesque”. I would show enough to entice, but save what really mattered. Based on my friend’s comments, I may have forgotten how to tease…

Like life, the blog is frequently an exercise in deciding what to share and what to save. I think that I can afford to share a little more without giving up all of the goods. Like I wrote last fall, I crave a life that feeds my soul and fills me with passion. Hopefully soon, I will experience the manifestation of that desire and take you on a more intimate journey with me. One that will entice you to keep wanting more…

Stay tuned!!!
