Dancing Chipmunks

“I know dance is good medicine for me at these times. Especially at these times.” – Cate Laurier I started my dance “career” as a dancing chipmunk in an elementary school production of The Sound of Music. That was because I didn’t get selected for the chorus, which is what I’d really craved. After recovering from the disappointment, I found myself backstage in a precocious moment of Zen clarity. I chose to dive in fully.“Well gosh darn, I’ll be the best dancing chipmunk I can possibly be”. I danced my heart out. It was exhilarating. What I learned in my 15 seconds of fame...

Despite her busy schedule, she made gratitude her daily priority. It allowed her to enjoy the simple moments in life, when money nor fame brought her happiness.

Dance, Dance, Dance

This is the title of one of my favorite songs by Steve Miller Band.  Here are the opening lyrics: My grandpa, he’s 95 And he keeps on dancin’ He’s still alive My grandma, she’s 92 She loves to dance And sing some, too I don’t know, but I’ve been told If you keep on dancing You’ll never grow old… I agree!  I love to dance (and sing some too)!
