It's been awhile

Today, I share music. And the more I listen to this, the more I want to hear it again.

The talent is obvious. Many people have it; it's what you do with it that sets you apart. She's not just a performer, she feels her music. She means what she sings. That's how a performance is done, with all your heart and all your being.

I think that is one of the main reasons why dancing is so enjoyable to me. Dancing is nothing less than becoming a part of the song, to allow it to flow through you and to be incorporated into the music. It is more than a physical expression of song, it is allowing your heart to fully embody the music and then moving in rhythm and flow of the phrases.

Ritardando. Crescendo. Con fuoco. Staccato! Oh yes.

Music is the mediator between the spiritual and sensual life.

  1. What we provide is an atmosphere... of orchestrated pulse which works on people in a subliminal way. Under its influence I've seen shy debs and severe dowagers kick off their shoes and raise some wholesome hell.
