New Moon 5/18/2015
As the New Moon invites a time to regenerate one's self and to reconnect with all that feeds you, I return to the dance, my constant, the boat that keeps me afloat...amidst turbulent waters as well as those times when the wind in my sails is billowing. I feel oso blessed I discovered the dance early on and I remain a devotee!
I am a woman walking thru this world with lotsa love in my heart, celebrating the divine spark of creativity in us all! It *is* GOOD to be alive and, I might add, to be a woman of a “certain age” whose youth has faded, yet the fine lines of a life well lived are only growing bolder!
The river of my life has presented a few occasions of choppy, high wave waters and tears (over)flowing. However, many, many more are the blessed days of smooth sailing and I believe my dance, frame drum and systrum practices deeply steeped in ancient traditions honoring the Feminine Divine are what keeps this vessel afloat.
Permit me if you will to share a dance piece entitled:
