Monday’s Meander/Photos: Saturday Morning Flamenco

At our local farmers market we are treated to weekly entertainment. I was glad to see and hear Espacio Flamenco, a local flamenco group, perform. I love that it celebrates being human and all the varied emotions and experiences that we embrace or endure. Once I was a dancing gal, so I took lessons two years ago. I then promptly injured my foot during a hike and had to quit midway. It took the rest of the summer to heal; since feet take a beating in this type of dance, I left it at that. Perhaps one day I will try again. An admirable aspect of flamenco is that women or all ages, shapes and sizes can learn and perform this spirited, dramatic music and dance. So, there is yet still time for me to get out there and dance! At some audience members joined in the fun.
