Monday Earworm: REG Project

Somehow on Saturday I reactivated an old hip flexor injury. I don’t know how I did it, except by literally turning around while I was collecting laundry. I exacerbated it further when I later bent down to help my daughter apply sunscreen to her back. At my age, I guess this is just my life now? Whatever.

As I’ve been doing my physical therapy to soothe this old injury, I keep thinking of what my physical therapist told me back in September the first time I had to take care of this nonsense. “Quitting bellydancing was the stupidest thing you ever did for your body.”

And he was right grumble grumble grumble.

Please enjoy one of the songs I choreographed and taught to several dance troupes back in the day.

  1. I could totally dance to that! I’ve been doing yoga on and off throughout the quarantine. Mostly off, this past month. On days when I get sweaty just sitting still, I can’t bring myself to do anything that would increase that. I know I shooooould, but napping in the basement, where it’s 10 degrees cooler, is so much more fun sometimes.

      1. He was of Lebanese heritage, but was born in Cairo. He performed and lived almost exclusively in Europe. ‘Ya Mustapha’ was a hit in France to begin with. I can remember hearing it sung by a female singer too, and a version in what sounded like American English. Also the middle eight turned up in a bellydance sequence in the 1970s (that I can’t find – I had it on tape).
