Deep Breath

Deep breath in and hold,
Release negative energy;
The mind is at peace.

Note To Self:

Avoiding your email in-box after a holiday, will not solve your problem.
It’s time to roll up my sleeves and start reading / deleting!


Happy Easter

Nice bright Easter eggs,
Chocolate bunnies in baskets;
Faith still triumphs food!


Hoppy Easter! #dancelife #dancers #choreographeverywhere #HappyEaster Photo credit: @jeffpayton
Twas The Night Before Easter

And all through the hotel room,
I’m moaning and groaning from a delicious dinner at the Chart House.
I feel fat and I’m tired, ready for bed.
To wake up for a sunrise mass.
Happy Easter.
