It’s been an incredible time! Full moon, finishing wings, practise, practise, practise with my hooping routine and so much singing. The weather has been so utterly beautiful! It’s late Autumn in Aussie but the days are just perfect one after the other. I have to get up early to catch the glorious sun because by 1 pm the sun has gone behind the cliff that the waterfall comes over! So my yoga, singing and hooping happen first as I love to do them all in the sun! My discipline has been amazing with it all and that in itself has been a joy. It’s been warm enough that every day is a nude around the garden day so my tan is looking golden!
My debut singing performance and hooping performance was fantastic! It was so wonderful to be involved in the Spaghetti Circus Cabaret night! I have been talking about wanting to perform for so long now and it felt so wonderful to actually do it! Wooohooo!! There was an amazing feast of performances and I loved the backstage bits as well. I performed first with the Hoopnotists, a hooping dance routine we have been working on for weeks! It was so different doing it in front of lots of people and bright lights. My routine was by no means faultless but I got into the swing of things. When you mess up in front of all those people you just pick up from there and get into it! It was quite a challenge as lots of us hadn’t performed before. A great experience!
After intermission I got into my fairy outfit and covered myself in glitter! It felt really wonderful to be putting on my big wings that I had made especially for the occasion. It really helped with my courage and i wasn’t as nervous as I had thought I would be. I was wonderfully introduced by Belle and then got into my song. It was a song I had written myself and hadn’t sung to anyone before. I was also using a microphone and hadn’t had much experience with those either. The crowd were wonderful and I really enjoyed myself! I have had so much amazing feedback…It was such a big build up with all the practise and I guess just emotionally as it meant so much to me. I was completely exhausted the next day. But now after another week of singing in my magic garden I am ready for my next gig. This weekend I shall be doing 2 songs and my hoop routine at a charity gig…. I’m excited and oh so happy! I am off off and away ladies and gentleman. Dreams do come true x
