Susan’s Playlists May 2 – 5, 2016 – Home of the Brave

This must be the place 050416

The routine that began as Brave, evolved to Home and landed with Home of the Brave (hat tip to Becky Trexler)! A week of cultivating the internal environment so that it’s in alignment with who we are.

You can find all playlists below or you can choose to listen to them by going to Spotify! Beyoncé’s Lemonade album is not available on Spotify ~ we danced to two songs from it, Freedom and All Night. I do recommend both the music and the video highly, so seek it out. You can listen for free at Spotify! Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!

And first one request and one announcement:

• Help me write next week’s post!
Next week, I’m writing about what it means to have a practice (as opposed to a hobby or an exercise class). If you have a practice I would love to hear a sentence or two from you about what it means to you. Please email it to sjmnia@gmail.com along with how you’d like your name/title listed. Please send them by Saturday, May 7!

• dance. sit. write. draw. Saturday, May 7, 830am-5pm – SOLD OUT!
Our day-treat of movement, stillness and creativity is sold out. And we will offer another iteration of the experience in the fall. If you’d like to join a mailing list about the dance. sit. write. draw. workshops, please email me at sjmnia@gmail.com and I’ll add your name!

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.
Dance on. Shine on.
Susan sig

*** PLAYLIST NOTE: My playlists can also be found on Spotify https://www.spotify.com/us/ by following “susanmcculley” (no space) and look for Public Playlists. Sometimes music is not available on Spotify so I may replace with another version or skip songs . ***

Love after Love by Derek Walcott

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
