My final flamenco dance performance in the mid-west took place at Indian University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble on January 26, 2012 with a lec/dem on January 27th.  I had some time to visit Indianapolis before flying back to Phoenix……  and the sun peeked out from the clouds briefly to say hello!!!

Downtown Indianapolis

We got to know Meridan very well.  We drove up and down the street several times during our brief stay in Indianapolis.

The Theater.


I was unable to get the entire dinosaur on my phone camera, but I got his foot as we passed the Children’s Museum.

Visiting Indianapolis a week prior to the Super Bowl worked out well for us.  Madonna got half-time and the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble got the Pre-Game Show!

The houses on Meridian

More houses on Meridian

The city is filled with canals.

Another canal.

Squirrel!  I zoomed in on my phone camera… it didn’t come out too clear, but you get the idea.

Fuzzy photo of me & Chris.

On our way to the airport.  I fell asleep but Chris nudged me to take a picture of the city one last time.  I opened my eyes briefly, took the shot and fell immediately back to sleep!

Ha!!!! Emerson Laffey & Adrian Goldenthal at the airport.  We’re indoors and absolutely freezing!

I performed with the CBJ Flamenco Ensemble in Lancaster, Ohio on January 22, 2012. It had been a week since I hadn’t seen the sun.  As a resident of Phoenix, Arizona, I’m fortunate to see the sun most of the year.  It’s an absolutely wonderful way to live.  So you can image my enthusiasm when the sun peeked out while traveling to Lancaster.

The drive to Lancaster, Ohio.  The sun is out!!!!

Brief stop for food before getting on the road again.  During this tour I think we accumulated 1700 miles of driving.  Sounds like fun….

What people are saying:

I have taken this Sunday morning to sit and go through your wonderful book.  The quotes are so uplifting and astounding.  As I read the quote from Schweitzer – about when the light goes out and is rekindled by another person I thought of you.  You have given me that spark.  I know I am old and past physical means to spark but I will share your spark in my way as life moves on.

Thank you so much for your art, talent, and this wonderful book.

“… tastefully done. As you know, a picture is often worth a thousand words, but many of the brief quotes in the book are also worth a thousand words.  In some ways, each page is a new world.”
