Who, Why this Dance


This dance is about wanting to live fearlessly
with vulnerability
to value and celebrate who I am
I imagine that my life’s journey might touch or inspire others
as I at times feel touched
when finding myself
reflected in someone else’s words

To nurture confidence in myself.
To dance with courage, ‘cœur‘, ‘corazón‘: strength and power of my heart
Allowing myself to be vulnerable
and risk touching my inner beauty and creativity
To stretch beyond my self defeating beliefs
and reach for what seems impossible
To create and share images of my inner journey

Dancing to the words
To nurture and feed my soul

  1. Hi Arati, I can’t remember if I invited you to the Walking with Intention event that I’m hosting in November. I think that I haven’t so, just so you know if you’re interested in writing a guest post on this subject, the full details are here: http://theseekersdungeon.com/30-days-of-walkingwithintention/ It would be for a post that I would put up on the Seeker’s Dungeon site. I’m pretty sure that you would have a lot to say on the matter so if you have the time or interest, please check it out.

    • Hi Sreejit, thanks for the invitation. I love the topic which i find powerful and inspiring. I want to participate. I am in Europe and my wifi access is a bit iffy at the moment. I will be back in CA on the 20th of this month. My mind is already tossing around thoughts on “walking with intentions” and what this means to me. I look forward to writing about this, as well as about your prompt on “Humility” which has been giving me a lot to contemplate on.

  3. Hello…

    Here’s a little message from Türkiye to say “thank you”. I appreciate your recent ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs there are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my little corner of the world tries to offer an eclectic smattering of posts, from basic amateur photography, to sharing my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also throw in a few of my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff for good measure.

    You are more than welcome to have a look around, stay a while and have a trawl through my small collection. There are plenty of drop-down categories within the menu bar to help in said digging process. Of course, if you have any comments, suggestions or concerns, feel free to let me know – I’m not easily offended 🙂

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    • Yeah …. It seems like it will be easier for me to to interact with other Word Press users and to receive support in managing this blog. I am glad you enjoy the title. I changed the notes to reflect a beat that actually makes sense to me.

    • Yes, you certainly have seen me, and been with me as i’ve gone through that which i thought i would never get through! And there is light at the end of the tunnel. These days there are times when the light is so big and bright i feel like i am bathing in it!
      I am taking in your knowing me to be courageous, letting it sink in, savoring it. To know myself in this way.
      Lately, as i contemplate writing, this quote from Marianne Williamson has been floating through my mind …. “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be?……”

      • I love that quote of hers. It is so powerful and so true.

        I have a couple more things that I suggest you talk about with the tech person that is helping you with the blog.

        When someone replies to a comment on word press we get a notification either by email, or in the notifications area. I did not get any kind of notification that you had seen or responded to my reply. I just decided to check and see if my reply was up.

        Also, people apparently half to fill in their name, email and website every time they want to make a comment. There should be some way to set it so that only happens the first time someone replies.

        I’m glad that you are getting the comments now though! 🙂

        And I’m happy you are seeing such a bright light………

        • Thanks for the feedback.
          Below the box where you can write a reply there are 2 little boxes that can be clicked to be notified of follow up comments or new posts.
          I’m curios if you clicked the first one for follow up.

          Yeah, i’ve been wondering about the name, email…. fill in. I tweaked the settings a bit. Next time you comment see if it has changed.
