Why I dance Irish dances.

Do you believe that Irish dances were devised by human beings? I don't.
Of course, you can ask me why.
Firstly, they are physically impossible. Have you ever seen the way Irish dancers hold their legs? Knees are facing forward, but feet are pointing in a different direction! It is an extremely strange, abnormal and inhuman turnout.
Then the dancer jumps. Well, actually every dancing culture in Europe has jumps. But their jumps are as abnormal, as their turnout. The rill jump for example. You have to fly and hover above the ground.
And, lastly. Obviously you have heard the legends of the Irish fairy. They were dancing in the fields, and any person who entered their circle would dance until they died. And so do I. I started Irish dancing last year. But, I can't stop it yet. Every other day I have a dancing lessons.

Do you still think that Irish dances belongs in human culture?

Dancing

What can be more exciting than dancing? Soft lines, lightness, natural beauty and... extremely hard work.
Every morning you wake up and you body hurts all over. Every muscle aches. But you make yourself get up, and try to walk step by step. At this very moment, you understand, that you really hate dancing with all your heart and soul. You can't stand your training sessions without a shudder. But you still understand, that dancing is your only life. True life I mean.
And you take your uniform and go for classes again. Stand up near the barre and feel, that you are completely happy again. You realize that you are the happiest person in the world. You dance.

And then a new day comes. And another morning starts...

Another day left.

I'm feeling blue, because of my weariness.

Today was a difficult day. We have are having holidays at the University, so this morning I had ballet class, then rehearsal, then folk class and then rehearsal again. We started at 11.30 a.m And I haven't eaten yet. It's terrible, if you ask me, but this day was without a moment's respite!
Now I'm really hungry, and want to sleep. Tomorrow will be another, absolutely identical "holiday".

Have a nice day!

Photography

This morning I decided to take some macro-photos. It was a serious quest, so I had to invent a new instrument for my camera.
Well. actually I have some lenses, but non of them is intended for macro. But I took kit-lens (Zuiko Digital 40-150mm) and old Russian Helios 44-2 and mounted them face to face. Thereby I get a monster-macro-lens, and all I needed to do was to find a thing I would photograph.
Actually in winter there aren't many interesting objects.. But winter means snow, and snow means snowflakes! Of course, I can't help trying to take some photos.
Actually the result isn't as good as I want.. but better something than nothing.

Mordred's lullaby (Heather Dale)

Actually it's one of my favorite songs. I've just found another lullaby, while I was serfing... and remember about this. Of course I can't help shearing it :)
The first time I heard it at "Irish and Celtic music podcast"



Heather Dale "Mordred's Lullaby"
Hush, child, the darkness will rise from the deep,
And carry you down into sleep
Child, the darkness will rise from the deep,
And carry you down into sleep.

Guileless son, I'll shape your belief
And you'll always know that your father's a thief
And you won't understand the cause of your grief
But you'll always follow the voices beneath

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty only to me

Guileless son, your spirit will hate her
The flower who married my brother, the traitor
And you will expose his puppet behaviour
For you are the proof of how he betrayed her
Loyalty...

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty only to me

Hush, child, the darkness will rise from the deep,
And carry you down into sleep...

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty only to me

Guileless son, each day you grow older
Each moment I'm watching my vengeance unfold
For the child of my body, the flesh of my soul
Will die returning the birthright he stole

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty, loyalty
Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty only to me

Hush, child, the darkness will rise from the deep,
And carry you down into sleep,
Hush, child, the darkness will rise from the deep,
And carry you down into sleep.

The first

Well, let's start.
Usually people start a new life on Monday or the first day of a month. But It's me and I want to start right now.
What can i say about myself? I'm a crazy young girl, interested at dancing, photography, myths (esp. Irish legends and everything connected with Ireland) and many other things (like languages, painting, playing the guitar and etc.)

Heh, of course I also should say, that English isn't my native language,  so I make a lot of mistakes in grammar and spelling. But, I swear, I'll improve them all one day!





So, let's the new life begin!
