I seem to be getting back into the dance habit ok, although I have experienced some muscle strain in my back and shoulders that I didn't have when I last danced regularly. Part of this may be due to using muscles I haven't used in a while, but I think some of it also has to do with stress/tension at work. I've noticed that while sitting at my desk typing on my laptop, my muscles are really tight. I'll have to make a conscious effort to relax, but it will be difficult, because I feel on edge at work most of the time.
I haven't had a chance until now to write about a dance/Stuy-related dream I had last Monday. In the dream, I was in a gym dancing. Then I went outside with the SO of one of my former Starlite teachers. Afterwards, I had trouble finding my knapsack. I roamed the Stuy hallways looking for it, but whenever I found it I'd wind up losing it again. Eventually I wound up at Spanish class. I had never seen the teacher before, but the teacher observing the class was Maria Puccio, who was my first term sophomore year Spanish teacher. I sat down next to her, class started, and the dream ended.
