The art of dancing


It’s no secret to those who know me that I don’t like dancing. For whatever reason it’s just never been something I’ve felt comfortable with or enjoyed. Perhaps the fact that my parents had no dancing at their wedding reception could explain it… (sounds like a boring reception). I randomly came across this girl on YouTube when I was looking for music videos of Despacito (definitely a guilty pleasure and yes I have looked up a translation of the lyrics) and I can’t stop watching her videos! She and her brother have a strong YouTube presence with millions of views and followers. I think this mashup is one of their best!

If only I had an olderĀ brother like this to teach me how to dance!

I know I’m obsessed, but just one more…


“Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros


This is one of those songs that makes me feel really at home. I travel back and forth a lot between two places, Indiana and Massachusetts, and when I’m away in MA, this song brings me back home. Upon hearing this song for the first time I immediately fell in love with it and had to further inquire. It’s something about the raw authenticity about the song and sincerity that makes me feel so connected to it. Isn’t that what music is supposed to do…? Elicit a connection between the music and the listener? I think so, and this song is so endearing, it’s really worth a listen or two. I love the idea of feeling at home wherever the one you love is, because I think it is so true and so telling of real love. So whether I am in Indiana or Massachusetts, I always listen to this song and it reminds me of where home is – with the one I love.
