Teach Me to Dance

"A man needs a little madness, or else -- he never dares cut the rope and be free." - Zorba the Greek

Viejo!

That is my favorite movie, my favorite scene, and my favorite quote! "Zorba, teach me to dance", is the same question the apostles asked of Jesus - "Lord, teach us to pray". Dancing and praying - it's all the same thing.

"Dancing and praying - it's all the same thing."

That brings back a memory of Mom, who collected aphorisms and posted them around the house that pop up in moments like this, reminding me:

"Every thought is a prayer."

Thanks for bringing Mom along with you, Dedalus, reminding me to weed the Garden of Thoughts/Prayer in the Dance.

Dance, hermano, dance!

Every day I can on these gimpy legs o' mine! ; ) And if the day comes they won't do it anymore - there's still plenty more to move! After all, I am my mom's kid.
