Stories about travel, life, writing and parenting my college-age children (who think they don't need any more parenting). Oh! And the occasional amazing photograph (I like to play pro photographer on vacations.)
Okay, I realize this doesn't count as an actual "Holly writing something" blog post, but you guys HAVE to see this!
I'm heavily into research for a writing project. Part of my research required me to investigate the art of flamenco dance. I've been to a couple of performances in my life, but hadn't really taken the time to study up on the art at all. Through my research I came across a particular dancer, considered by many to have been the best of all time: Carmen Amaya (1913-1963). For the fun of it, I decided to check YouTube to see if I could view any of her performances. This video is only a little over 2 minutes, and...
It. Is. AMAZING!
(For a little added inspiration for my fellow "shorties" out there, Carmen was barely 5' tall.)
