Nurture Yourself – Be a Free Spirit


Isadora Duncan - 98abd2eed401235c73828ecc80fe5ecd

Dancing is very freeing. Many people believe that
you must follow certain guidelines to be a dancer.

Isadora Duncan believed in an unrestrained style of dance.
She’s been credited with moving dance away from strict formal structures
towards more free-flowing forms of personal expression.

Five Brahms Waltzes in the Manner of Isadora Duncan – Solo (Tamara Rojo, The Royal Ballet)

The free spirit that was Isadora Duncan was tragically silenced

when she was killed in a terrible car accident in Nice on the Riviera, France.

The eccentric, world famous, dancer and pioneer of a new style of progressive dance was killed.

During a test drive for a car she was interested in purchasing,

her Spanish shawl was caught in the mechanism of the front wheel of her car.

A devastating ending to a forward thinking dance artist.


Let your inner dance spirit come out to play.

Be in your own dance world.
In Love and Light ….

I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you
and I am in that place in me.
We are One.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. Dance is my swan song, it’s my soul food. I’m a busy mum of 2, and I make dance one of my priorities. It reminds me of who I am x

  4. I took history of dance for an art credit in college, I wrote my report on Isadora Duncan… I’d forgotten all about it. She was a beautiful and free spirit. 🙂

    • She was ahead of her times. I can just imagine how many more barriers she would have crossed to dance freely.
      I read her biography when a teacher recommended it after a group of kids had mocked my name. It was enlightening.
      I’m glad you enjoyed my story about her and that it brought back a fond memory.

    • Awww … thank you for your kind words, Claire. I’ve been fascinated with Isadora Duncan ever since a teacher in grade
      school introduced me to her. Kids were making fun (mocking) my name. The teacher told me about Isadora Duncan to ease
      the sadness I was feeling. Teachers are important in our lives. Sometimes, we don’t realize it when it’s happening.
      Have a great weekend.
      Isadora 😎

  12. I love dancing! Have a plaque on my wall that says Dance is the music of the soul. Used to go with a sister and dance for as much as five hours running. Sigh. How I wish I could do that again. Love this, reminds of the magic of dance.

    • Dance has been a spirit I carry with me everyday since childhood. It was my way of overcoming so many things.
      I’ve loved it all of my life. Sadly, bad knees from aging has curtailed it for me. I strive everyday to stay in the dance
      and do but with a great deal of pain. I, too, wish I could be where I was. But, smile fondly at the memories it’s had
      in my life.
      It’s lovely to see you here, Janni. It’s been a long time. I’m sure your journey has been one of many levels. Please stop
      by for a visit from time to time. Thank you for your comment. Be well … Be happy … Be love !!!
      Namaste 🙏🏻
