breathing along bones sally taylorA week replete with birthdays and breathing, and drawing in and letting go, and some damn fine music, I must say.

I loved the discovery of Sally Taylor, daughter of James Taylor and Carly Simon, and her delicious song Give Me Strength (thanks again to Kira for pointing the way). Perfect for this week.

To Janice and Art and Deb and Diana and Shakespeare and Pat (and Pam on Saturday), I’m so glad you were born and our dancing paths have crossed. To everybody else, hell, I’m glad you were all born, too, and aren’t we lucky to get to do this together?

Why yes, yes we are.

EnJOY it all, everybody.

Dance on. Shine on.
