Just realized that I never wrote a post about Mexico.
The country, which paid so poorly our music show and which gave us so generously real friends on the road. As usual, places are beautiful nature just for the eyes, thru which your soul can calm down but people are the genuine experience, which ultimately matters.
We met Will and Eli in Cancun, guys, who we could count on, hosted us several times and were the right alfintrions to open the doors of the Mexican kingdom.
One other life though flew away untimely several weeks ago and left us tremendously sad. Damien was a special part of our company in Merida and no matter his decision afflicted all of us knowing him, he will be a bright memory of a cheerful, clever, charismatic creature, full of life, full of love. God rest his soul.
The rescue call didn’t take long. Fabian (a.k.a Freddy) and his brother Eric were literally God’s messengers. We stayed in Freddy’s home until we started giging (extremely poorly-paid but enough for food and wine) and believe it or not, as in a fairy-tale, a sale of a fossil shell, left by a friend of ours in Cusco, paid us one-month rent in a safe neighborhood. Mexico city is a damn cool place to live in, full of adventures, events, art and chaos, but when the month was over, there was not a fossil left, we were put out to gig in one of the biggest chains in all Mexico (Sanborns), so we took off back to Merida in our French family, where spent the most wonderful Christmas of all times.
This post comes to sew my travels with the almost two years back in my homeland time.
Two years of almost infinite transition (two homes, four jobs), of strong personal disappointment and discredit, but as well period of starting dancing and practicing again and setting up a path to a new world, the one of the dance therapist. When something gets broken inside the only real remedy you can apply is to keep on the journey inwardly because not a travel deserves a thing if the change doesn’t happen from within.
Ready to open a new page. A bright one, where I will draw with all the potential accumulated those years and with all the beauty impatient to be born again. Amen.
