This is not just about dancing, music and drinks. Rather, we want to create a communal experience - people coming together, using music as a mode of fellowship and release. loom is a monthly world-beat dance event with the intention of social progress. With an environment and music incorporating Latin, African and American culture, this event is geared towards an eclectic crowd with all ethnicities, religious, cultural and social backgrounds. This is about creating a sanctuary of sacred dance energy, of peace, of unification of all peoples.
It's great to such a varied group of people get together to celebrate and have a good time, regardless of whatever differences might keep them in different social circles in their daily lives.

It was a great project, that really showed off the artistic and creative talents we have here in Omaha. I read somewhere that a similar project will be displayed this year, so I will be keeping my camera ready to show them off.

It seems like several of us have been feeling somewhat limited in subject matter lately. All we see around us is snow, snow, and more SNOW. While snow pictures are indeed often very beautiful, one begins to wonder what it ever felt like to hold a camera with fingers that are not shivering or frostbitten.
Well, I have good news for you (or maybe just for me) - Spring is right around the corner!!! As I was walking downtown on Sunday, camera in one freezing hand and a hot cup of coffee in the other, I walked over to the wall overlooking the lake that I have shown a couple of times. It took me a few seconds for the honking sound to register. I realized what I was hearing just as the lake came into view - it was the honking of GEESE!! The whole view of the lake was FULL of birds. They were walking around on the still-frozen area, and groups would suddenly take off, and fly around a bit in V-formation, then gracefully land together once again on the ice. It was beautiful, but my favorite part was that the birds (who are lucky enough to fly south for the whole winter) know when it's time to come back. So, I'm crossing my fingers that it means that Spring is almost here!
This great lamp post is part of a park downtown devoted to Nebraska wildlife. I'll show more pictures of the area in the next few days. I also took some pictures of the real birds, themselves, but distance kept me from getting a shot that would do justice to the view that I had - hence the lamp post stand-ins!!

**This picture was taken after last week's snowstorm. I can imagine what it looks like now after this past Thursday's blizzard. Click on the link for more details of the blizzard.

This picture was taken at about 10:30am yesterday. The darkness can tell you a little about how bad the blizzard was. And there was no fog - all of that is blowing snow!
When I am able to drive around freely again, I promise more pictures of Omaha that do not include snow!
