And yet another true confession: I just completed an 8 week Basic Salsa class. YES! I did it, I nailed the moves we learned, okay maybe not the Tap, Tap ... but I get the whole thing, just can't make the hands go right and the feet go left...all good things take time. It's like the rub your stomach and pat your head trick. I'm getting there. I also signed up to continue the lessons. I wasn't sure I was going to do that. It all started because of that guy...but I enjoy it! It is so much better than going to a gym. It's a shared experience. Love it! About 4 years ago I tried to learn and was discouraged by a so called instructor. Bottom line, don't let anyone tell you that you will never be able to do something. Just keep trying, keep practicing, and your brain will learn it. Be patient with yourself, even if no one else is.
One last note...adventure number 2 of the new year begins in 36 hours. Travel the world! I better get that laundry done.
