Gazing into 2017.

Greetings all. First off, I’d like to wish you all a very Happy and Blessed New Year! 2016, and the years before are done.. surely, I am not the only one to agree, the ups, downs, miscalculations, bumps and falls have been quite humbiling. Within this new year, plans that have been made: aim to be reinforced. Toxic and hugely stressful friendships/ useless, saddening and overpowering  business connections: be dismissed. Bright and promising future, within a stronger, beautiful, loving, caring platform to stand, rely on and systematically, rest upon: arise! Allow, the openness and expression that is required, to flow forth. Giving and Receiving all that I am worth and desire. And to just as well, provide such blessings of gifts, outwardly!! 

One of the Daily practices

From within: Find the stillness, acceptance, openness, calmness, strength and mobility.. #namaste​ today, as most days I began with a set focus. Throughout all of the many things going on in life be them good or bad, we must always find ways to give thanks. To balance things out. For me, I find myself returning to the mat, ballet barre, sometimes all within the same day. Like today. These valuable things, help me in various ways in life. From physically to emotionally. It all is done Spiritually.. And full heartedly. 

Silent protest

Greetings all! Hoping everyone who reads this is safe and well. I apologize for not writing in such a long time. But, will get back to it and soon. Please bare with me. As most should know by know, a downpour of sadness, anger, death, sickness on many levels is seeming at an ally ine high. I’ll be silently protecting by not using any social media today(Saturday) and adding in Sunday for personal reasons. Be well and take care. 

Echoes. 

As I had a few hours to catch breath, regroup, repack and adjust my compass, I found myself walking past a very special location. A place that has many echoes of history, of creativity, of life changing events not only for myself but many, many others. A place that’s been closed and seeming nearly forgotten already due to the “change and progress” of Harlem. As I travel the world: from Russia to Rockford, IL, I come to even more conclusions that things and people change. If you want something to have longevity and mastery of time, one must evolve, make oneself open and vulnerable and become enforced with an inner strength that’s unmeasured. I find, that if some type of formula or focus is not achieved, the changes of longevity and mastery of time and change, are nearly too low to measure at all. Looking up at the now cryptic letters and windows blocked out with impenetrable paper. I remember and try to blink back the tears. Recalling the once vibrant and unique lounge in Harlem, my heart aches still. She reminds me of reality, of new and old love. And how cultivation, respecting and knowing what love is, compassion, and evolution of Self can live and die, just as it can live on forever.  

Nutcracker season! 

Greetings all!! It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written!! Life has been interesting, as usual. As a ballerina, this time of year can either be down time: rest and recovery or High energy, mental and physically demanding: nutcracker season!!! For me, it’s Open Season!!! Lots of Travel, pointe shoes and tutus to barefoot, grounded and exploration of all emotions!! So please, be on the look out for more writings! For now, I’ll share a few pictures from rehearsals, recently. Body and mind holding up nicely. Take care everyone!!  

    
 

Swan sighting…

A little over a week ago, a had the opportunity to perform in a first annual recital in BK. I was asked by a friend of mine to come and represent ballet/ballerinas that reflect cultural aspects of which, majority of the students reside. They are a small number in addition to the many in various locations, in need of exposure to artists that can not only teach, but show them that it is possible. And that they too can achieve whatever their goals may be! No matter what you look like, what you’ve been through or where you come from. Here’s a video from that blessing of an evening performance.  The rawness of the quality and commentary: matter of fact, golden and priceless.
