Today…I feel grateful.

11 Mar

Today I feel grateful for…

The kindness of new friends
An unexpected hug
Dance and movement so fulfilling and so inner-reflective that it brings tears
Unshielded laughter
Small, new accomplishments
A healthy body and mind
Being in the best kind of love
Warmer breezes
Two eggs on a roll, with an iced coffee. My favorite NY breakfast.

Music of note:
The Scientist by Coldplay
We Do What We Want To by O + S

Can you tell the similarities? Stealing anothers creative vision = epic fail.

(Kate Jablonski’s formations, sheer imagination, and bravery in movement is amazing for a 22 year old)

(Is her stuff not so interesting to watch? Little surprises, everywhere.)

Why can’t my commute be like this? Brilliant viral.

The Nutcracker- NYC Ballet.

17 Dec

I highly recommend, especially if you appreciate dance or Christmas in New York, to go see Balanchine’s The Nutcracker performed by the NYC Ballet. I saw it on a weekday evening specifically for its lower ticket price, but was just as dazzled as a five-year-old little girl with ribbons in her hair. Any age would be moved by the familiar Tchaikovsky melodies and the Waltz of the Flowers choreography.

My favorite moments would have to be the famous pas de deux with heartwarming strings, and the Arabian coffee piece with the tickling sound of bells.

A great Holiday present to myself, and I recommend you do the same.
