Tuning in to: I Love to Dance

This week for the Happy Book blogging group, we're picking songs that compel us to dance. Although it was fun to think about, I didn't have time this week to create an exhaustive list of my favorites, and I can't think of them until I hear them again anyway! Maybe some other people in the blogging group will help me remember a tune I love to dance to. And maybe this little list will remind someone else of a great dance tune.

May your bodies sway, shake and sashay!

Grateful for an artistic community

This week for the Happy Book blogging group we're focusing on who we'd like to thank. I feel immense gratitude to be in the company of a group of talented people who create beautiful work together. The amazing dancer/improviser/teacher, Mark Lamb, has created this wonderful monthly event. It was his vision, and it was built through the wonderful contributions of those inspired by that vision. Dancers, choreographers, improvisers, musicians, cooks, pastors, even a baby. The circle grows larger and larger, and the salons keep getting better and better! At the salon last Saturday, September 11, I witnessed this beautiful piece called "Peace Requiem." May we honor those who have passed, not by waging war but by cultivating peace and compassion in our hearts and in the world.

A fun scavenger hunt

My knee has been bothering me again, so I haven't been able to go out there and take pictures for the scavenger hunt. But you know what? I've got lots of pictures sitting in my computer, and this was a wonderful opportunity to go back through years of memories. That was just as fun!
