July 3, 2010was the day I received my first hula hoop from MsDolly of Facesarefun. It was heavy. Pink and black.
I learned isolations and basic skills. Got bruises. I knocked my face many of times. Blood. Black and blue marks. Loving every second.
I’ve hooped with fire. I’ve danced to the Dead. My enthusiasm has infected my children who also love to hoop w me.
I never took a class, but I asked every hooper to show me a new skill and lots and lots of YouTube.com tutorials.
Safire and several other certified instructors have been my education via the net.
This last year has been so fun. I’ve come a long way. I now own 17 hoops. Even made a bunch, which I gave to my friends so they can find the peace and happiness I’ve found in the circle.
Thank you MistressHoopstress, Clapper, Dolly Paul and those who have assisted me in my journey. You all are my hooping inspirations.
