Paint + Dancing = FREEDOM!

6 Jun

Check out the coolest activity I think I have ever heard of. Grab your dancing shoes, and your paint brush, and get ready to groove.

From Matt Jones, meetup coordinator:

“”Welcome to The NYC Paint Dancing Group! Paint Dancing is a new venue created solely for the purpose of openly expressing yourself for fun in 2 different mediums – AT ONCE!

That’s Right! PAINT and DANCING (at the same time) in private art studios and various venues located throughout NYC.

We supply the non-toxic paint, brushed and paper! All you need is your paint clothes (and shoes) and you are ready to try PAINT DANCING!

Paint Dancing is a safe, supportive and fun environment to express yourself. The best news is; you don’t need to know how to paint or dance to participate!

Paint Dancing was recently covered by Seattle’s NBC affiliate King 5 – Evening Magazine.”


Glad someone voiced it.

I have always been hip to the idea that Americans drink to many calories. Here is a great article pointing fingers at the WORST drink choices you can make, and how much sugar you are taking in.

A really cool website in which you can hear and read the stories behind old mix tapes surrendered during a relationship. Love it.

Two quotes from my current book.

These quotes struck my fancy as I finished Change of Heart, by Jodi Piccoult. I wanted to share:

“But here’s the amazing thing-light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light. I guess from my point of view, we can choose to be in the dark, or we can light a candle.”

“There are two ways to live your life; one is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.  -Albert Einstein”

I need a doorstep now.

“Remember the milkman? Apparently, he’s back. Manhattan Milk delivers fresh, certified organic milk from Pennsylvania Amish farms (or rBST free milk from New York farms) for a nominal fee ($5 with a minimum $15 order) to any address in Manhattan in simple glass bottles.”

Simple go to the website to place your order, and they even pick up empty bottles for reuse. If you want to steer clear of the hormone-induced grocery choices, you might like this organic, and very old school, option.

Thanks to Katie for the lead.
