Some Pesky Pink Flamingos (YouTube confession)

No, no, no; Don’t worry!
This is by no means the heavy soul searching stuff, I had to tackle last time,
in order to come out on the other side.
Far from it.
It has actually been an amazing weekend, where I felt very much alive as a yoga teacher, for the first time in years.
And this includes feeling alive as a Rock Star Yoga Teacher.
.
It’s just that I had to come on and write here, Sunday late at night, because I was/am irritated that my videos for Rock Star Yoga YouTube, fell through.
I accomplished so much, including setting up my new business as a local online yoga teacher (If you live in the Netherlands, you can check my online yoga groups here), only to see something so close to my heart failing.
I love Rock Star Yoga.
It’s what gave me direction, what showed me the way back to yoga, at a time when I thought I was lost forever.
.
And then in the weekend when I started a new yoga business;
I “failed” Rock Star Yoga.
.
It was as if the videos were cursed.
I threw out a Bon Jovi talk video and multiple yoga videos titled Pink Flamingos.
And although I look forward to filming it again tomorrow morning, I think:

“What is it with those birds? Why is it so difficult?”
If I get a hold of them after all, that new video will be uploaded on my Rock Star Yoga channel. 
But meanwhile, I thought let’s hop on here, and explain what Pink Flamingos actually means.
As a Bon Jovi reference?
I think only the die hardest of fans will know.
And those who do, probably didn’t know until in this century, when internet and fan groups became a bigger thing.
I m pretty sure that in the eighties, when Pink Flamingos by Bon Jovi originated, no one knew.
.
Pink Flamingos is the amazing synthesizer intro to Let it Rock, the first song on the Slippery When Wet album.
I ve called it “Sex on a keyboard” once, and I ll do it again:
Pink Flamingos is sex on a key board.
Written and played by David Bryan, Bon Jovi’s keyboard player.

In my Rock Star Yoga origin story, the intro to Let It Rock plays a big role.
I consider it my sexual awakening.
.
So why that video of mine, the yoga video Pink Flamingos, where I was going to do lots of balance poses – because “Flamingo”- why that keeps being postponed, dismissed or deleted?
I don’t know.
.
But who knows how long it took David to get it right.
.
And then maybe, one Monday late March he got it.
.
Let’s hope so.
