for all you dancers out there

I have to say, I am pretty overwhelmed by all the good wishes and blessings sent my way. Thank you all for peeking in and giving me a thumbs up. My humble little blog also has received a gift from a fairy godmother in blogdom ... did you notice the shiny, new banner? Thank you lovely Susannah for this unexpected gift! (And for taking pity upon my already-over-taxed technical skills.)

It has been a busy start to the weekend with family outing to the swimming pool at Grandmother's "Club" (sounds so Victorian), dinner and a long drive home. But I was thinking about all of us winding down from the whirlwind of Unravelling and wanted to share this little nugget of inspiration. An excerpt from a poem called Awake Awhile by the Persian poet, Hafiz.

Awake, my dear.
Be kind to your sleeping heart.
Take it out into the vast fields of Light
And let it breathe.

Give me back my wings.
Lift me nearer."

Say to the sun and moon,
Say to our dear Friend,

"I will take You up now, Beloved,
On that wonderful Dance you promised!"

Be kind to your hearts ... they are very dear.

After a storm


  1. Hi Lis, checking on you ;) Yes, I have noticed the change and it looks great!

    If you would like this frame behind your blog's vignette to disappear, choose in “font and colors” white for “border colors” unless you like to have your other pictures with borders. You can try and see what works better for you.


  2. This is a pretty place! I especially like your Blog header. Nicely done! Looking forward to visiting regularly

    aka knowlan, your classmate

  3. Congratulations Lisa! So happy for and inspired by wonderful you!
