Coming Up For Air

Women dancing at the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance. It has been a hard couple of weeks. I have been a little depressed, a little confused, a little under the weather, and very lucky, as I had a major car accident yesterday and along with the guy in the other car, escaped unharmed. The car is probably totaled, but I won’t know until the insurance folks come take a look next week. My little car looked so sad as it was put on the tow truck and driven away. I wanted to go tell it that I’m sorry for rear-ending the car in front of me, and that I did try to stop in time but it was not possible. But I thought that the tow-truck driver and the CHP Officer would have thought that I was high or something for having a conversation with my car, so I just whispered those words in my heart. I didn’t leave you with a weekend good wish on Friday, and I am about to fix that! So, here’s wishing that you have had a good weekend, and that wherever in the world you are you are experiencing joy, health, and happiness. Take a look at this slideshow, which is all about a celebration of dance with some very nice imagery. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqhNPY882kE&mode=related&search= So, as I felt sick and bruised and immobile, due to the developing "no-car" situation, I had time to reflect and rest, which I spent writing something new. It’s about love and divorce and I wrote it for a friend of mine. When it’s published I will write the link. I ran into my friend Saba, who said that she reads my articles and enjoys them, and comes to visit the blog routinely. I asked her which article she read, and she said: "Oh, all of them." I’m really having a good hard time with this business of being seen and not be able to see, even by people I know! Be good and safe.

Nazy Joonam: I am so glad you are alright and in one piece! I am sorry to hear you feeling depressed, but these "downs" are what make the "ups" so much more special!

I hope to see you soon. You must come to our new place and go to our new gym with me; Parham and I are moving to Walnut Creek this Monday!

I will finally have the party I have wanted to have for so long, and we can all dance!

Mobarak basheh Asal Jan! A party sounds really good right about now! I agree with the Ups and Downs business. Exactly when did you get so wise?! Call the boys if you need help moving.

Thank God you're alright.Not only that, you managed to write one the best pieces I have ever read on divorce and loss of your 'witness to your youth and major part of your life'.

Thank you Serendip! The article had been cooking in my head for a while and just jumped out this weekend.

I don't know why I am not at all upset about the accident and my car (not to mention the humiliation of telling everyone that I was completely at fault! Hahaha. The insurance guy on the phone asked me if there were other passengers in the car, and I so wanted to say: "Except for the 50 imaginary and real people always traveling with me, none!"). I am just so relieved I didn't harm the young man, a Berkeley grad, in the other car. Thanks for caring.

Nazy jan: I'm going to burn some ESPAND for you...LOL

Being upset about the accident is a waste of precious energy and time. There is nothing you can do but to count your blessings.
