I have ten days left in Sevilla.  I don’t want to leave.  This is my dream; living here, dancing here.  But my dream is also to mount my own works, which is more feasible right now in the United States.  As important as studying and experimenting in the studio is, I need and want to put this year to use performing and lecturing in the U.S.

Going through some of the things I’ve acquired, mostly weeding out lots of things–unless anyone knows where you can buy a magical Mary Poppins bag–I found some notes I’d written my first few weeks here.  One of them read, “Sometimes it feels like right when things are clicking in one place, we have to move to a new place, but I guess if we didn’t move we’d get stagnant.”  A little piece of advice I left for myself in early September.

So as my time here winds down, I figured I would do several posts about what I am going to miss most–really it’s the quotidian things, which I haven’t posted too much on blog.  For the next 10 days I will post the little, normal things I will miss…along with something I am looking forward to in the States.

In Sevilla: On Thursdays there is a very large flea market on Calle Feria.  Lots of interesting items from flamenco dresses to antique silver to pirated dvds.  I enjoy looking at all the items–if I lived here permanently I’d give in to buying lots of porcelain and some of the artwork….

And back in the states: I can’t wait to see these:
