All that Jazz...
Saturday night I decided at very last minute to expand my comfort zone and fixed ideas about what I like. So reading the kids story at breakneck speed, I legged it out the door. I took myself to an all girls jazz orchestra concert held in a local 13th Century church. A fund raiser to help with repairs & replacing the lead the thiefs keep stealing.
Well. I feel expanded into someone who has danced to a jazz concert. I had a great time, a total ball. Not least because I was OUT! I didn't know anyone there except one of the musicians was a fellow allotmenteer. I was the only one dancing the entire time, so I suspect they might know me next time!
So I will no longer say that I don't like Jazz. I think I like it Live. It won't replace my love affair with a Folky Fiddle band. Or a scruffy acoustic guitar player to fall in love with. But it was fabulous energetic fun & I am rather proud of myself for pulling myself out of my small world & making it bigger.
