Today is Friday so I will say yesterday, Thanksgiving Day was WONDERFUL. It was a beautiful day at the beach, as usual, but I had Normen Schindowski, Bill Bowers and a new friend Jay join me. It was a great deal of fun and I can't think of a better way to begin the day of Thanksgiving than dancing gratitude. We were supposed to go to Busch Gardens but as it turned out we all felt like we needed a "quieter day", so we said adieu after an hour and a half and went our separate ways. Normen and I had a quiet day with Suki, Marc Schindowski"s Alaskan Spitz, and went to see The Life of Pi in 3D. Wonderful movie...... I connected with my sisters after 3 long weeks... I took the day "off" from computer, etc... which is why this is coming a day late, sorry all. I truly AM grateful for all of you, for the beautiful day and for the fact I took the day off... yeah....
Today was an interesting day of Gratitude Dancing. It was just Bill and I and we decided no music and stillness as our dance for the first half, then played Gregg Braden/Jonathan Goldmans Divine Name CD and danced to that. Interesting enough as we turned this music on, suddenly the beach came alive with people coming out for the "day after" at the beach. Many people took our pictures from afar but didn't approach us, Tom asked permission and I said, yes of course and only asked he send me the pictures. (This is what I say to everyone but so far, no-one has come through with their promise to send them to me). Oh well, c'est le vie.... At least we bring a little color and levity into their lives and our own... What am I grateful for today? That I "took off" yesterday and am greatly refreshed after a day of low energy. That I saw the movie Life of Pi (awesome movie).... That today I feel much renewed, I am getting "caught up" here and the office is coming together nicely. We just bought office chairs today for Black Friday sales and got them for 1/3 of the price. That's always good... I am grateful for Normen always, for great friends and family, for Life in general, for everything...
Pictures and videos are coming over the weekend from Thanksgiving Day, so look for them soon... In the meantime and always, Thank You!!!
I wish Peace, Beauty & Love to ALL....
What are you grateful for?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
GRATITUDE DANCE Every morning 9 am starting 11.06.2012 till 12.16.2012 Siesta Key Public Beach near the green Life Guard Stand
Many of you know I am a person who is doing my best to "listen" to guidance and then "do as I'm told". So this is another one of those Divine Directives.
Beginning tomorrow, I will dance in Gratitude for 40 days in a row at Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, Florida. (Yes, I see the irony, it is election day in the U.S.)
This is an invitation to join me. You can join in for the whole 40 days, or simply show up whenever you're inspired to do so. Tomorrow I will begin by joining in Kathy's Nia class at 9am, so feel free to join me. After tomorrow I will dance every morning at 9am (which those who know me well, know this is a major feat in itself) lol...
If you're somewhere else in the world, feel free to do your own "Dance of Gratitude" and use this page as a place to share.
I will post daily a message from Hafiz and will also add whatever else I'm inspired to share. For a daily blog look to my new website www.bodytalkandbeyond.com and certainly feel free to share your own experiences.
The intention is to share "what are you grateful for?" each and every day. Why 40 days? Because, it is a magical number for encouraging change and solidifying commitment, thus forming a new habit. My intention is to create a wave of Gratitude around the world that shifts us into a new way of Being. A grateful way of being where we notice what is Right in our world and create more of that! Not right from the judgmental, fearful perspective of the past but Right from the Divine Inner aspect of the Soul that knows only Light, Love & wellBeing. So, will you join me? Regardless, I will dance as a light to open the hearts of mankind to Kindness, Love, Beauty, Grace and All that nurtures, supports and connects. I dance for myself, because I can do nothing else and I dance for those who feel they can't, until they know they can and return to the simple pleasures of Joy and Living and Dancing with the Earth and with each other, with all of Life.....
I would be remiss if I didn't mention my friend Ann Paquin, as she did this 2 years ago in Sarasota and lit the way for me to do the same. So, thank you Ann!!!! Your beautiful Presence is a Light & Inspiration to my world and the world in general!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank You!
