Earlier in the month, I was contacted by Texas Martha. Who is she? Well, her name is Martha and she is from Texas, obviously. She is a very talented artist, musician and lead singer for the band, The House of Twang.
We are both members of a group on Facebook named, Americans in France. She emailed me one evening and shared her bright idea of hiring a bellydancer for an upcoming show. At first, my Frenchy attitude reared its ugly head, by that I mean, boffff, its too much trouble, it is not enough time you know -- excuses. Nonetheless, after hearing her music and after she recounted the history of the song she wanted me to perform to, I was hooked.
Besides, THIS TEXAS GIRL COULD NOT REFUSE ANOTHER FELLOW TEXAN! Davy Crockett would make a Scarlett skin cap, James Bowie would terrorize me with his knife, Sam Houston would shoot ME in the anklle.
AND HOT DIGGIDY DOG, I had a TEXAS SIZED blast!
I danced two numbers that evening, Johanna and the medley mash-up rendition of Hound Dog/Black Magic Woman.
These are a couple of photos from that evening. Yes, I did two costume changes and shook my money maker!
I love France, despite all my complaints and her faults, which at times makes me hate her.
Still, France has allowed me to live out a fairy-tale of MY dreams! She allows me to show who I really am, the graceful dancer, the writer, the poet, the dreamer, the lover and for that, I am eternally grateful!
Have a great week and go in the directions of your dreams, whatever they may be!
Love... Scarlett FEVA

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
