Synchronicity ~ March 31, 2012

I was at the dining room table setting up for our morning cribbage game while Rod was making pancakes for breakfast (with the last of our blackberries). We're listening to KJZY our local jazz station and this base line comes through on one of the songs that we just can't ignore. Rod's shuffling round the kitchen and I'm dancing in my chair.

We looked at each other and I said "You know what, we should dance for half an hour every day." After we had breakfast I came out to my studio to do some work. Rod sat down on the floor to look through the books in our little bookcase of favorite reading. About 20 minutes later he walked into my studio grinning from ear to ear. He's holding a small book called "The Daily Book of Positive Quotations" that was a gift from my friend Trisha.

He has it open to March 30th, the title is "Dancing Every Day" and the quote from Oprah Winfrey:

Every day brings a chance
 for you to draw in a breath
kick off your shoes
and dance

Dance Along the Light of Day

"When opportunity presents itself, we need to be willing to stand up, take a breath, and commit ourselves wholeheartedly, even at the risk of looking a little silly. Life is short. Let's engage it as passionately as we can."

Dance Me 'Round the Kitchen

We have a dance date in the kitchen at 11:30 this rainy Saturday morning, maybe some blues or a little rock and roll to warm up.
