Hello Swetty Pies !
How was your May day ? Did you celebrate Beltan today ? I confess that this year I didn’t, I think I’ll just make a spontaneous little prayer prior sleeping tonight.
You may know it if you read my blog regularly, I love Jamie Ridler, she’s one of these few people who truly always inspire me, I feel so blessed she’s in the World and share her vision and her truth.
For the 5th year, she hosts on May 1st her annual virtual dance party and invite us to join and take 15mn of our day to just dance.
Here is a part of her message:
Dance to greet your day.
Dance to greet your mailman.
Dance with the sun, the moon, the stars.
Dance with your honey, your self, your cat.
Dance on the subway, while waiting for the bus.
Dance while your tea is steeping.
Dance while your kids are sleeping.
Dance from the tips of your fingers to the soles of your feet.
Let your elbows dance. And your hips.
Dance in your own way.
Find your own groove.
There’s no way to get it wrong.
Inspiring, isn’t it ?
I take modern’jazz dance lessons during seven years; I would have love going further but I didn’t have the chance. Sometimes it makes me sad. Seven years later, I changed a lot, and especially my body (two kids later, I’m not one of the lucky women that have a body without any trace of pregnancy, if you see what I mean). I feel out of place while dancing, like an hipopotamus in a China chop.
But today, and because my girls and I love taking a few minutes here and there to enjoy dancing together, was different… I asked Cheridoo to film us while dancing in the garden, while it was still sunny outside, before the night comes.
I’m sorry the sound did not work out. But it’s okay because we didn’t put any music, we have only the notes flowing in our heads 🙂
