Out of the head and into the body

It's a beginning of a new week and I was feeling the ole' need to start it with a brand new twist, in fact, I would love for every Monday to be stapled with a new activity, new discovery, new "ness" in some way.

Today was my first introduction to a dance class called 5 Rhythms. Eight of us ....two guys and six gals, danced our way through five different rhythms which would rock our bodies and spirits into various stretches, hip grinds, and virtually any other move our individual bodies would like to test out. And boy, did our TeMpLeS sing!

Music that would fall under such categories as Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and lastly, Stillness.... all meant to shake up the dust.

In the end, I was breathless. For an hour and a half my mind was left to hang around just right outside the dance floor, with my coat and boots.

Why couldn't I do that most of the time? We need a rack for the mind, it would be a great invention. My body was the driver, the pencil on the paper. And in a nutshell ....Marvelous Monday!
