Rites

Nov 25 DanceWe took advantage of all the cultural events available to us here, in Montreal. Wednesday evening, we went to the Place de Arts for a contemporary dance performance called Rites. It was only an hour long, but being a one-person show, it was spectacular.

In the program, Jose Navas, the dancer/choreographer discussed how he has to reexamine readjust his work as he ages. He is currently 55 years old. The way he moved, I could not help but think I could not have done some of these movements when I was 15 years old.

What an incredible treat.

After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI. We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
