One-Foot Spin Dream

It's been a while since I've had a skating dream, but I had a very vivid one the other night.  I'm still having trouble doing a 1-foot spin in real life.  In my dream, Coach Dee was holding me from behind and we were spinning together, me on one foot.  I was getting the hang of it, and we spun that way several times around the rink.  Then she let me go, and I was doing it all on my own!  I went to several different spots on the rink, and could very easily get into a 1-foot spin!  It was very easy and effortless.  When I woke up, I really felt like I knew where my balance should be and how it would feel to do a really good 1-foot spin!

Unfortunately, when I skated in real life this morning, I was still too chicken to pick up my foot.  Bawk bawk!

I almost wish I could learn the 1-foot spin from a proper entry, rather than having to do a 2-foot spin and then pick my foot up.  I don't know why, but in my mind it seems like it would be easier to skate "into" the spin as it is normally done, rather than just pick up one leg like a stork.  I'll have to discuss this with Coach Dee.  She already knows I sometimes have an odd way of learning things, so maybe she'll go for it.  I can only hope!
