Serious Play



Lately I've felt like my hoop practice has been getting rather . . . boring.  Here's what a session in the hoop was looking like:
  1. Turn on music.
  2. Freak out white girl style for a song or two.  
  3. Gather self.  Focus.
  4. Waist hoop.
  5. Trick.
  6. Waist hoop.
  7. Trick.
  8. Waist hoop.
  9. Trick . . .
  10. Abandon ship.
 After watching Jessica's latest hooping video yesterday, I felt inspired to go play in my hoop.  At the same time, however, I thought it would be a futile effort.  I'd try to do cool tricks and instead end up feeling like a big tool.

So instead I decided to hoop without the tricks and play with body movements and dancing more than wowing my invisible crowd.  And honestly, since I don't know a whole lot of tricks, that's not really saying much.  Still, it was a challenge for me, and I enjoyed the results it yielded.  Plus, I felt really dang cool. 

What makes you feel really dang cool?
