  13. I think belly dancers should have some belly, and yours has a nice one.. Very good photo

  14. Hi James and DBM,
    Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments. James I really was facinated by the flowing of the fabric, the movement of it created such a peaceful feeling motion in the midst of the chaotic festivities. I probably didn't really do it justice in the photos, but I was trying. Thanks again James and Don't Bug Me! I appreciate it.

  15. Hi Aileni,
    This person's movements were very fluid and gracefully done, certainly she was a very good artist. Like I was mentioning before, she was wonderful to watch...didn't really do the belly dancing thing as much as graceful movements with the material (not sure what you would call the wings of fabric she was using). Just lovely and fantastic to watch.

  16. Hi Dan, Susan, Carver and Lucy,
    Thank you, so glad you liked them.
    Lucy - glad you like the banner too - thank you for the Purrs! Hope you will all stop by again.

  17. Hi RuneE
    Yeeaahhhhh....pretty sure they were not taken in Egypt. ;) Thank you, RuneE, glad you liked them. Thanks for visiting!

  18. Anne,
    I agree, the movement and flow of the material do create a very 'freeing' feeling. That is a great way to describe it.

    Hi, yes I would love to be able to do that too if my body didn't get sent out of whack for a month with the first movement I'd make. ;)

    Glad you liked it all, banner too, and thanks so much! OH - I have a photo to put up for you. I will find it today....Mr Spacial took it while I was in the Privvy (not that I ever do anything like that!) and was unable to get a clear shot.

    Petunia, MyMaracas, and Turquoise Diaries,
    Thank you for visiting! I am glad you enjoyed the photos. Thank you for the nice comments.
