Dreams

Where would we be without dreams? I pose this question in all seriousness moved by a spiritual leader & inspirational mentor Martin Luther King Jr. who would have celebrated his 83rd birthday on this day. We commemorate the work of this non-violent warrior, who in times of intense political warfare in the areas of race and equality had the courage, passion, conviction and valor to speak truth within hostility, opposition and inhumanity.   Does it seem right that because of this he lost his life?

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.
