Blossoming moments…

As the sun shone upon me today with vibrant rays of energy, I took the opportunity to indulge with Mother Nature, one of my favorite relationships on earth.  Days like today allow for me to give gratitude for all of my blessings.  In the midst of this crazy life we lead, or so it appears, making time for gratitude is essential, for me or anyone else that understands the power of receiving.  While walking I discover a leaf, which leads me to moments in which my children were drawn to pick up every twig, rock, shell or any particle in our path.  I will frequently share with them how magical these moments were for me, watching them discover and hold on to stones or branches for days.  It is essential to experience wonder and my heart goes out for those who have lost their sense of wonderment, either through lack of self expression, or because it was robbed from their core.

De todo un poco …

As a young girl loving dance and performance, I danced through much of my free time back then with my Sony Walkman or the jukebox style stereo I had in my room with a disco ball listening to songs mi mama thought to be inappropriate and, in retrospect, the lyrics were so loving and uplifting in comparison to some of what our current generation is exposed to, but I am not going there today. Like many other girls, I had an aspiration to dance and move my body healthily, representing a message of some compelling music.

While enrolled in classical ballet, I imagined combining salsa, mambo y rumba with my plies and tandus, however that was not what I was there for.  I was there to learn a technique and I loved to go every Sunday like clockwork.  My teacher was beautiful and I admired her grace, strength, and dedication.
