    How Purnima lost her groove...Can you help her find it?
    How Purnima lost her groove...Can you help her find it?I believe I have the makings of a Pollyanna.  And that's helped me when chips are down. But here is one situation that I am still trying to fix my groove. Maybe I will in a few months..We'll see :-)..I am extremely passionate about a certain art...

    I hope you have found your groove @Purnima Menon. Failure can be our best friend even though it may not feel that way when we are experiencing it.

    I have not doubt Purnima that you will find your groove, because nothing teaches us a lesson like a failure. They asked you back so they know it was a one time thing more than likely exasperated by the last minute 'inprov' warning. You were 'star struck' by the 'professionals, we are all there in some capacity. There was a sentence you used that I use whenever I mentor someone at work: "•Understand the big picture. No matter how small you think your part is." It's how I work at whatever I'm doing, whether it's a passion or a career. I need to know the WHY in addition to the HOW. Great read, I enjoyed it very much and loved the makeup!

    Are you perhaps being too self critical of your original performance @Purnima Menon ? Surely the audience of Kathakali take equal delight in seeing the colourful make-up and costumes, and you certainly seem to have met expectations there, if your photos are anything to go by. If you were really as bad as you think you were first time round, then why would the organisers have asked you back? Practice always makes perfect, so onwards and upwards. As they say in stage business "break a leg!" Wouldn't life be so dull if we could master everything we try first time?
