Tabby wrote up a recap of the performances (including mine) at her Angel Organic event: An Evening of Mindful Movement at Shine. I am flattered and humbled to have performed with such a diverse group of talented people. Everyone embodied mindfulness in their physical/spiritual practices. The support and love in the room was palpable.
A sore shoulder kept me from practicing the two days prior to the performance. I had just left a very chaotic home of bickering children and my head wasn’t right. I was nervous and frazzled. I warmed up and then took a seat on the floor as I waited for my set. An acquaintance sat next to me and apropos of nothing she started rubbing my back. She had no idea that my back was hurt and that I was nervous yet she reached out to me and soothed and warmed me with her touch. It was a magical moment. Thanks be for random acts of kindness.
Stacey introduces me in this video and the actual dancing doesn’t start until 1:40. There are a million things that are wrong with this performance in my mind, but I just have to let it be. I did my best at the time and it felt wonderful.
Thank you Tabitha for giving me a place to express myself that feels safe, respectful and supportive. Thank you for having an open mind and seeing past the stereotypes.
