River Reflections, Dancing and Kindness

01 Nov

We went out to a gig with lovely friends last night, Maniere des Bohemiens at Miss Peapods and it was an excellent evening. The reflections on The Penryn River were pretty.

The music was brilliant, so full of ecstatic energy and simply inviting everyone to dance – and I danced! For those of you who are not regular readers, this was very special for me as over the last ten months I have had two new hips and prior to that was not very danceable!

While we were there we met the Mother of a very special young woman and heard some of her story. R went to Spain for her gap year, heard about the refugee crisis and set off to Lesvos to help. To hear the reality from her Mum was heartbreaking. This amazing young woman is doing such a beautiful thing. You may want to read of similar experiences in this blog. Be prepared – you will be reading through tears as I was.  Kindness to others is just so very important.

    Lights, Dancing. Romance.

    Thanks for the link. And Friday was a horrendous day for refugees crossing the Aegean Sea. So much of the world wants resolve.

    I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a refugee in the sense of the masses in the blog but I do relate to what the writer went through with temporarily “being without” and how trivial those times seem now. Glad you are able to dance again! It’s the little things….like dancing, having food, shelter, clothing….love and kindness.
