Stayin' ALIVE

"To know what you prefer, instead of humbly saying "Amen" to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to keep your soul alive."

~ Robert Louis Stevenson

"And keep dancin', bishes..."

~ Kevin Steven Charnas


On Some Level, You ALWAYS Know...

"There is guidance for each of us, and by lowly listening, we shall hear the right word. Certainly there is a right for you that needs no choice on your part. Place yourself in the middle of the stream of power and wisdom which flows into your life. Then, without effort, you are impelled to truth and to perfect contentment."

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Well, we saw this the other night and it was simply magnificent. Certainly the most beautiful documentary I've ever seen. And I would venture to say in the top five most beautiful films I've ever seen. We saw it in 3D and it was stunning and actually took my breath away more times than not. The performances were just incredible, and Pina's talents and verve were grounded in humility, yet nothing short of astounding. But then, the film maker was equally brilliant.

And it reminded me that we can be so much more than just human.


Do More (because you can)

And really, aren't we always in the classroom?
