Dance when you’re broken open.
Dance when you’ve torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you’re perfectly free.
Struck, the dancer hears a tambourine inside her,
like a wave that crests into foam at the very top,
Maybe you don’t hear that tambourine,
or the tree leaves clapping time.
Close the ears on your head,
that listen mostly to lies and cynical jokes.
There are other things to see, and hear.
Music. Dance.
A brilliant city inside your soul!
~ Rumi

Blessings, Lydia

    • That you for sharing your blog and the video with me. I can see why it inspires your passion. I admire those who dance for the passion that they put into it and the grueling work that they endure to do it. As I said in your blog, with your passion, spirit, determination and love of dance, I have no doubts that you too will grow to inspire countless others. Keep up the beautiful work.

      Also, you have an amazing Mom who clearly loves and supports your dream. You are truly blessed on all fronts.

      Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog and I hope to see you again soon. Blessings and grace, Lydia
