Dancing with Heart

Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another. 

A friend forwarded the link to "Where the Hell is Matt? 2012".  It made me smile and gave me hope for our crazy mixed-up world so I want to pass on the good vibes.

Matt was in Cairo during my last sojourn in Egypt and I remember the news stories questioning whether he would be safe filming in Tahrir Square. I didn't 'get' Matt at the time; now I do. According to his website, "Matt thinks travel is important. It helps us learn what we're capable of, that the path laid in front of us isn't the only one we can choose, and that we don't need to be so afraid of each other all the time." I couldn't agree more.

Furthermore his website states that, "Matt would like to see the Transportation Security Administration disbanded and replaced with a new system that doesn't train people to mindlessly obey pointless rules. He believes brief conversations with well-trained humans who make direct eye contact would be a better way to keep people safe without sacrificing their dignity and liberty."

With his positive-thinking foreign policy and his sensible homeland security plan, this man should run for President! There's hope! So let's all dance with our hearts!

Go on . . . get up out of the chair and do a twirl across the floor. Dance like no one's watching. . . . it feels goooood. :-)

I remember eating an orange like this in Portugal....I have always wanted another one, but when I went back I couldn't find one.
