Art & Music – A Lover’s Dance

The stages have been silent for a long time during the recent encounter of the COVID19 pandemic. The pastimes we loved to do were no longer open. 

Art museums, theaters, musicals, dances locations, and concerts shut down completely. The heart-nurturing events I enjoyed stopped.

I’ve been a dancer from the time I could walk. I danced to make people smile. Although I’ve danced in every genre, my favorite has always been tap. The high-energy rhythms can raise your endorphins to great heights. 

 I adore all genres of music, including classical from my ballet training days. My husband is a New Orleans jazz and blues music lover.

Because of the closings and isolations, we decided to have Saturday Music Nights. We’ve watched YouTube videos, streamed many concerts, and played dance music to keep up our stylish moves. This week I chose the genre. I hope you get as much energy from watching Sarah Reich from PostJukebox Music tap dance.

Enjoy … Isadora

Art and Music – Silence

Silence is a source of great strength.©LaoTzu

We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And, that’s the burden of a year

The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, 

and only the wise can see them.©Paulo Coelho

The sea has its pearls

the heaven its stars

But my heart, my heart

my heart has its love 🍃🍃

Nature produces

the greatest results

with the simplest

means. These are

simply the sun,

flowers,

water and

love. 🌿🌿

Nurture Awakens

Every season spills its own wonder on earth ….©Isadora DeLaVega

Spring Dawn’

Every flower of every tomorrow,

is a seed well planted

on a winter’s day.

Then, earth awakens.

The wonder of another season.

Bringing colorful flowers,

for Spring’s debut.

Look not for beauty,

nor color of skin,

but, for a heart,

that is loyal within.

For, beauty may fade,

and, skin grow old,

but, a heart that is loyal,

will never end.

Sunday Song – Down to the River to Pray

Costa Rica Church Aa.web

I was watching one of my favorite movies O’ Brother Where Art Though,

and remembered a post I had done awhile back. I decided I’d repost it.

The movie is on many t v  channels all of the time.  I think it’s a classic.

We need a feel good movie right now. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out on enjoying

few hours of fun with a wholesome movie. George Clooney isn’t too bad on the eyes either.

 These songs are from the movie. Alision Krauss sings them with a mesmerizing tone.

The Kossoy Sisters have a unique style.

Down to the River to Pray by Alison Kraus from O Brother Where Art Thou

If you have a favorite movie you’d like to share,  I’d love to have the recommendation.

You can add it with your comment.

Have a Blessed Sunday …

Bubbles … Bubbles … Bubbles


Bubbles
blowing in the wind
I try to catch them
I can’t, what a sin


They float, they lift
with the currents of wind
Up, up, they soar 
higher and higher in the sky                               


Gentle crystal bubbles
radiant colors, sparkling
Iridescent and glistening bright
rising, rising, soon out of sight

What child or adult doesn’t enjoy playing with bubbles? 

A combination of dish soap or shampoo and water create the liquid that can provide an afternoon of fun. 

A thin layer of soap film forms hollow spheres when blown through an object. The bubbles don’t last very long before bursting but children always find it exciting to try and catch one. It’s always been a fun pastime.

Frank @ A Franke Angle hosts Beach Walk Reflections.

Last week, he wrote about bubbles at the beach.

His insightful essays on the topic are a pleasure read and worth a look.

Wordless Wednesday – Music and Painting

Love is a canvas embroidered by you.

Abstract Art’ ©MegaDuncanson

It doesn’t cost much to be happy if the currency of your heart

is the blowing of the breeze and the swaying of the trees.

Nurture Yourself – Shine Your Light

We all have a light 
Let’s let it out 
Let it shine.

~~~~~~~~~

We all have negative thoughts from time to time. 
During these current uncertain times, we’re faced with daily negative
information of great proportions. It can become overwhelming.  
We have no control over that but we do have control over the way
 we live and manage our lives through these new situations. 

Right now, make a pledge to discard those negative feelings.
Let the best light in you shine out from your being.
Spread good thoughts to everyone you can. It helps to
lift their spirits and yours as well. We have the power to change
ourselves which in turn helps change others.

We have a bright light … Shine it Bright
Namaste, Isadora 🙏

Namaste
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.
