It's good to let things breathe in your imagination because often your initial response to it is not the best thought-through response. I savour little glimpses of life. Mine and those of people who turn me sideways and around. Friend or stranger. Even a child. (the world looks different from down there) Sometimes an author, photographer, artist. I let things saturate and incubate here. Hopefully, deeper meanings can percolate up and flower.

Tummy Talk: shake your booty!

NOT TOO LONG ago, bottom cracks were the new cleavage and, tops became so tiny they blatantly displayed a woman’s double delights. Then late last year, fashionistas told us hip-hugging jeans have headed north and too-tiny tops, south, and there is not a flash in between anymore.

I thought bellies and bottoms had gone back under wraps.

A jog over here told me, apparently not.

Tummy Talk:
Hips are swingin' and some men start to drool
And for dressing I've got a flair
Singing', hey jiggle, jiggle bellybutton in the middle
There's a jewel in the navel right there

This beautiful dance celebrates the belly. “It also provides a channel for women to express their beauty and sexiness."

Belly dancing is suitable for all ages and body types. Some of the moves are MEANT to make your fat jiggle. If you have:

... big boobs, floppy tummies, bottomless belly buttons, generous love handles, wide hips and fat arse with dimply orange butt cheeks.…

... it's a fun and sexy way to lose the jiggle. Just let your abs do those belly rolls.

Belly dancing is also a very good cardiovascular exercise. Good for your waist, for nice curves because it involves every major muscle group in your body. Breaking the mold of linear exercise - for example sit-ups – the circular motion is said to promote the circulation of blood, in turn enhancing flexibility. Frequent low-impact contraction of muscles is supposed to improve posture, burns calories and, in turn reduces stress and prevents disease. There are also mental health benefits: an improved sense of wellbeing, elevated body image and self-esteem.
