Groove is in My Heart

Nothing gets me out of my own head like dancing. Painting and writing do, but in different ways. There’s just a different kind of freedom that comes from moving in rhythm to a collection of sounds…I don’t think I could live if I couldn’t dance.

I’m not exaggerating. Just stating what I know for myself to be facts.

I’ve been doing my damnedest to get out of my own brain for a few weeks now, finding music, yoga, tweeting my randomly erratic thoughts, eating, tequila shots, wedding planning, watching Tom & Jerry with the boys, and journaling to be worthwhile distractions from my cycling moods…..

but I haven’t danced lately and I find myself tonight, wanting nothing more than to turn up the volume and get lost in the release movement and sound bring me.

I can’t of course. Not right now. It’s 11:30pm and the boys are asleep….Bertski’s at his desk coding away, shrouded in the heaviest of concentrations….and I’m fairly sure my neighbors are sleeping.

So instead, I’m just sitting here watching my dance video playlist on YouTube.  

Watch. You’ll see why they’re on my list & making me smile tonight 🙂

Yea…these are MY videos…but they makes me smile…. 🙂


New Year….Beautiful Day

My awesomely fierce friend Joy Tanksley shared this on my Facebook wall, so I’d thought I’d share. Seems appropriate, no?

We can do this y’all. Let’s make it a beautiful day in spite of what may lie ahead of us. Be encouraged. You are loved.

Shine…..So I Can See You

My prayer as I start this week…….

(and can I just say how much I freakin LOVE DCB?!!!!!)

And the promise I’m holding on to as I go into my week…holding on to this knowledge with a white knuckled grip….

(and yes, my music crush on John Mark McMillian is super fierce)
