Denise Dances: A Return to Perfect Health - Body, Mind & Spirit!

Friday, December 4, 2009


Look at me
I will never pass for a perfect bride or a perfect daughter
Can it be
I'm not meant to play this part --
Now I see
That if I were truly to be myself
I would break my family's heart.
Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
Why is my reflection someone I don't know?
Somehow I cannot hide who I am though I've tried.
When will my reflection show who I am inside?
When will my reflection show who I am inside?
(My, my. What beautiful blossoms we have this year. Look. This one's late. But I'll bet that when it blooms, it will be the most beautiful of all.)
(from The Ballad of Hua Mulan)
The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all. (But THAT was in another lifetime!!!...* * * :) Denise...Denise Dances...2009.
This post is dedicated to my beautiful niece Julia. (Out of the mouth of babes...!)

A Stranger in Your Midst

A STRANGER IN YOUR MIDST New London, CT -- THE BLIND SIDE Sat Nov 28 09 1:05pm 1 Nianti PG12 623 1 Ad Mat$6.00 A mind is a terrible thing to waste. "This is my extended family. I'm lucky to have a family that understands. I knew that some people here today would be sad because they don't get visitors." -- Donna, CNA, Bayview Health Center, Niantic, CT. Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 2009. "I get along with your father. We understand each other." To me, this movie is about Lee Ann; not Michael Oher. (sp?) Which proves the point that we are not here to showcase our own talents. We're here to use our talents to help others. (Who is that girl? I know she's in there, somewhere. She's nice...and quiet...) Who is that stranger in your midst? And how much longer are you going to ignore her? At the end of the movie, I felt Paula compelling me to sit still and watch the credits. To feel whatever it was I was feeling. But I got up and walked out of the hushed, lit movie theater of still filled seats. I don't know where the dizziness came from. I hate crowds; did I pick up everyone's vibes in the theater after the movie? Low blood sugar? did eat a very sticky chocolate mint donut with mint chips before the movie. The full moon about to pop? Who is that stranger in your midst? And how much longer are you going to ignore her? Denise...Denise Dances...2009.

Facebook Fame

Hi! This blog will be posted on Networked Blogs on my Facebook account soon, so all of my Facebook friends can read me. What is black and white and read all over??? Hopefully, having Facebook friends can take the place of foooooooooddd! This crappy weather creates carb cravings. "Perfect Size 12" jeans in jeopardy! I hope the Muse will come again soon.  In regards to prior posts, God put me in this post for a reason.  Once I have completed my "assignment," he will place me in a better situation.  God -- You owe me big time!  (Will I get in trouble for that?)  Friends, I want to thank all of you who have remained faithful readers to my blog.  Hope to attract more than nine readers a day soon!  GOD CAN HANDLE IT.

Cry Me a River!

CRY ME A RIVER! Yes, cry me a river. In viewing a post of prior weeks ago, I long to be standing on the banks of the Lieutenant River in Old Lyme, of a beautiful October afternoon. (Well, maybe next fall...) This weather -- SUCKS!! Great sleeping weather, though. Sixteen hits to my blog yesterday. (Only one today.) Thanx for reading; everyone! (P.S. You don't have to believe me. But then again, you don't have to live there either!!!...* * * :)'s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a beauty; would you be mine? could you be mine? (if you're so smart, why ain't you rich?) Denise...Denise Dances...2009.
