Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh…

Heard of cliff notes? Well how about a cliff dance?

Helen Keller US blind & deaf educator (1880 – 1968) said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men (and obviously women) as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.”

Improvisors learn how to fall, flow and float. We find a way to say “Yes” to whatever shows up. Eeegads!

Fall down? Get up and fall again.
Sink? Swim or float.
Pushed, pulled? Flow or not.
The real adventure may be to wait, dream, hang out.

Got your wingsuit? Prepare for life!

Faith Poem

When you walk to the edge of all the light you have
and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown,
you must believe that one of two things will happen:

There will be something solid for you to stand upon,
or, you will be taught how to fly

Practice:
Spread your wings. Open out your arms for a minute. Kids do it. Opening our wings creates more breathing room and expands your space and mind. Do a flying dance or soar quietly within with “Heart Wings”

Take a deep breath and let it out with a sigh.

In Oakland on the First Friday InterPlayers dance on behalf of you whether you are in Thailand, Mumbai, Melbourne, or Memphis. InterPlay has grown big heart wings.

    As Trish Watts sings:

    “Do not despair when you fall or grieve. Falling does not hinder great love.”

    Thank you for the reminder to watch the cliff dancers again.

    The first card of the Tarot deck is the fool, who steps out over the cliff of life with a dancing, joyful spirit, accompanied by his/her little laughing dog. I’ve written some piano music called the Fool’s Journey!
