Gratifying to know…
The gratification that comes from and only through all you involved readers.
So much gratitude to you all for your support and engagement and likes.
Through encouraging comments and fabulous link shares.
So much learning in these sharings.
So grateful for the opportunity to share
Looking forward to reading your works
In mutual admiration and respect
From one writer to another.
For readers and writers are connected
In a dance of symbiosis
There is no one without the other.
Universal Oneness is an awareness
In reflections of the truth of the being
Interweaved and interconnected in every life .
Strength shines through the vulnerabilities.
As a power in the very fragility
Touched by divine grace
Enmeshed in the senses
Fired in the cauldron of life and living
Comes a consciousness of the flow
In and around us
Beyond the illusion of separation.
Is the dance of connection.
As a Ballroom & Latin dance educator, many students have asked me what my favourite dance style is…
It is said that each style is like a language. Personally, I also think of different dance styles as having a “mood” that goes with them. I guess it’s not surprising that I do like lots of “happy” or “joyous” styles of dance. But I really do like the variety of dances for the variety of moods and it’s amazing ability in bringing a sense of balance. If I was stuck to dancing in one style, I would probably get bored after a while (I know that sounds strange). But it’s one of the reasons I really like dancing a variety of dances.
The Tango (for its intensity and passion at play as much as its fancy footwork)
And dancing the Waltz (for the heady glide, the rise and fall and its romantic sway).
Love the Rumba for it certainly is the dance of love… the song Everyday I love you, immediately comes to mind. But this performance by Slavik and Karina is quite riveting.
Happen to like the Cha cha for its stylish moves as much as its teasing spirit …that kind of speaks, this is my move … now, what’s yours?
I love the Jive for its lively spirit. You can truly never be sad after a little Jive/ Swing and Rock and roll. What say? At least it has always been a happy dance for me.
Really fond of it as much as the Samba for its lively bounce, so full of joyfulness.
Then of course comes the Foxtrot that feels like a wonderful conversation a dialogue between the steps
I also like the Merengue with its simple marching steps and executing many inter-looping turns almost feeling like a pretzel.
And how can I leave the Bachata for its engaging sensuality as those dancing hips don’t lie, they say it all and much much more…
Dances are so many and styling makes it even more unique.
In fact, I enjoy all these dances and more for their unique expressions – just one style would get boring.
The trick is to flow with the music and your partner whatever the dance and partake in the pleasure of dancing together in the now.
To actually be able to enjoy dancing to the varied music styles that would be a real treat. All the more reasons to learn and train in more than just one dance style :))
Do share your thoughts on dance and if you love to dance, what your favourite style of dance is…
I would be glad to learn and read more.
Life’s lessons for one and all!
To learn anything profound
That gets you changing the self
That transforms thoughts
To transcend the mundane
In contemplation and reflection.
To response and action
Practice is the best teaching.
To teach is to engage whatever the age.
Teaching the young
A child is reflexive and responsive
And absorbs in the new like a sponge.
To teach the young is no easy task
It can be a task that is daunting
And yet very rewarding at the same time.
To truly change the world for the better
We need to teach them, love for life and living.
We need to speak with compassion for them to follow suit
We need to share and express ourselves
We need to treat one other with kindness.
We need to be caring and considerate consistently.
We need to share more of ourselves
We need to honour our commitments.
We need to reach out and help another.
We need to encourage and appreciate
For these are what gets imprinted in their hearts
For acts of goodwill leave a lasting impression.
Art speaks without words
Art emotes when words fail
Art emulates the vision of the heart.
Art flows in movement and solitude
For Art is life and living is an art..
Art : In Evolving Consciousness…
Art can have different connotations and lead to diverse reflections. To propose peace, to promote healing, to propel the power of art or provoke is a choice in the hands of the artist .
Art : Creating in the Interconnects
In the context of conscious evolution, to value the thoughts that goes into any art is to accept and respect uniqueness of the being and value the tuning into the oneness in the interconnects.
From creating art, to assimilating and amalgamating the thoughts structurally, all are uniquely diverse yet interconnected expressions of the evolutionary process.
Smile from the heart…
Help without expectations
Care without agenda

Share the love…
You do not live each day to discover what it holds for you, but to create it!
Lets start by creating some positive thoughts in and around us!
