I'm doing fine, everyone, and thank you for your concern. Just scraped knuckles and few sore muscles. I think it would have been worse, but I had just been in class and my muscles were warm and pliable. Hyde - interestingly, my teachers tend to use a mix of different music while teaching from classic to hiphop with some traditional music thrown in. If you go on Amazon.com and search for belly dance music, you will find some recommendations lists with sample tracks.
Now, I would suggest that you hop on over to the Big Fat Blog. They have a Fat Rant from You Tube that is wonderful, and is so true. It will make you feel wonderful about yourself...well, it made me feel wonderful about myself.
I've decided that something new that I'm going to do is to review any book that I'm reading here on my blog once I've finished it. I'm finding that I've been picking up a book and putting it down, only to pick it up 2 weeks later. Maybe this will help me to finish some of what I start.
