It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

I Wish I Was In Lyon On Saturday!

October 27th, 2011 · 3 Comments


Maya Muses:  I just received an email today that Matt Harding, from Where in the Hell is Matt, will not be dancing in Paris this time around, but he’ll be in Lyon on Saturday!  Too bad, if I had known ahead of time, I would have made an effort to be there to dance with him. (More advance notice next time, Matt – please!!!)  As it stands, the notice just didn’t give us enough time to plan a trip to Lyon.  Oh well, maybe next time!

If you would like to participate, here’s the info Matt sent me:

Lyon Dancing Event Info:

PLACE: Place Bellecour next to the statue of Louis XIV
DATE: Saturday, October 29th
TIME: 3pm

Here’s a Google map of the location:

and a photo of where we’re suppose to meet.


If you want to pass this around to friends, there is a Facebook event
page with the information included in this email.
You can view it here:

Meet-up Info:
I will be there no matter what the weather is like.

When you get to the spot, look for the guy who looks like the guy in
the dancing video. Just come on over, say hello, and ask if I am Matt.
If I’m not Matt, I will let you know.

Before we dance, I will need to get your legal permission to appear in
the video. I’ll shout some legal-sounding stuff on camera and you can
just nod and give me a thumbs up if you’re okay with it. Kids under
18, please bring a parent or guardian, or at least bring a photo of
one of their thumbs to hold up (just kidding, don’t do that).

I can’t guarantee the clip we shoot will end up in the final video.
There will be a lot of footage to choose from and some of it will not
be used.


Wearing distinctive clothing will make it easier to spot yourself in
the video, but please do not dress as a licensed character (Mario,
Spider-Man, Sarah Palin) or I will have to blur you and that will make
everyone think you showed up naked or something. Also, please do
not show up naked.

I don’t have a sponsor for this video. I am self-funding the
production. To help with costs, I will be selling shirts after we’re
done. The shirt says “I Danced With Matt”, so you’ll have
proof. It costs 12 Euros.
Cash or credit accepted. You can also view and order any size here:

You’re welcome to bring your own camera. After the shoot, I’ll stick
around for as long as anyone is waiting. I’m happy to dance with you
in your own picture/video, so don’t hesitate to ask, but I do request
that you wait until we’re finished shooting because I’ll be very busy
until then.

I know a lot of you are nowhere near Lyon. I can
only put together so many of these events, so I look at where I’ve
received the most emails and I try to invite people to
the event that’s closest to them.


Special Dance Groups:
I will also have a little bit of free time in France on Thursday and
Friday and I would love to meet with smaller, organized groups.
I am looking for dance troupes (any style of dance is great,
professional or amateur), classes of school children,
or any other group that might be interesting. I am open to all sorts
of possibilities and I can get myself to most places in the country,
although the southern part is easier, since that is the direction I’m
heading in. If you can arrange for a group to dance in my video,
please reply to this email and tell me about it.

Final Notes:
If you can, please click “I’m Attending” on Facebook if you plan to
attend, so we have a rough idea of how many dancers to expect.
If you’re not on Facebook, don’t worry about it. You’re not missing

We’re hoping to put the final video up on the Internet in early 2012.

Okay, that’s everything.

I look forward to dancing badly with you!

    Too bad, Lynn, but I’m still hoping that he comes to my neck of the woods!

    Aw shucks! Sorry you didn’t get to go.

    Morning temps in the high 50’s here in Charleston….Chloe is loving it.

    Pam, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!

    Harriet, I love hearing about Chloe! By the way, thanks for the photos, your white chrysanthemums were picture perfect!
