Paradise at the Blue Moon

Last night I was at the Blue Moon dancing with the Funky Feats and Lulu was leading. And then, Hevy Malibu popped in to dance with the Funky Feats. Now, Hevy is a man who loves dancing (possibly more than I do) and is one of the founders of the Funky Feats; he is a legend. He and NYNan Nishi are the choreographers who showed me how wonderful dancing in Second Life COULD be; they were my inspiration. It was a lucky chance that put me in Caribbean Breezes one memorable night in July 2007.

I seem to have caught one of these disgusting summer colds, and was feeling miserable, so I was worried about how quickly I would be able to react to the music changes during my set with Ot which was due to start immediately following. The qualities that make her set so much fun also make it a bit challenging for me to choose dances when I am able to concentrate, let alone feeling under the weather. Then, Hevy decided to stay for our show. OMG I was terrified and sooo nervous. Then I focused on the music and the dance with the intent of not letting Hevy be disappointed and completely forgot how sick I was... He said it was like being at the Paradise all over again. Wow. Thank you Hevy.

Ot will be gone for the next couple of weekends and I will miss her tremendously. Sigh. I will just have to drown my sorrows with dance...

I couldn't believe my eyes when Hevy appeared in front of me! I knew he had been on occasionally, but haven't seen him in months and months. I've missed him sooooo very much. I cried!!
