What Have You Done Today To Make You Feel Proud?

Categories // Music, Dance, Movies

Susan notes: when I first heard this song about 10 years ago, it thrilled, excited and inspired me. So many of the themes contained within the lyrics - overcoming fears, grabbing freedom, believing in possibility - resonate with the deepest parts of me to this day - maybe that's why it was chosen as a theme for the 2012 Olympics in London.

I also think it's a timely reminder (in whatever year) to do something significant every day - to do as Ghandi suggested and "be the change you want to see in the world."

Pussyfooting Has A Special Place In My Heart

Categories // Music, Dance, Movies


Susan notes:
My heart
is touched by the role Pia, my Mom's cat, plays in helping my Mom, who has dementia, continue to lead a joyful life. AND of course I'm also amazed to see how crazy Pia drinks tea from a mug - the paraphrase a tea advert from decades ago: "It's the paws that refreshes.

Bruno The Cat Thinks He Is A Dog

Categories // Music, Dance, Movies

Bruno_The_Cat_Thinks_He_Is_A_DogMy friend May (whose native language is Arabic), has a cat named Bruno, who she has somehow taught to fetch.

Or perhaps Bruno was actually a dog in a previous life and already knew, at some deep level, how to fetch. In any case, this is proof positive that we may have many more skills and talents than what our outward appearance might first suggest.

Fetch Bruno. Fetch!

You Didn't Even Make Me Come On

Categories // Music, Dance, Movies

Lucinda_WilliamsLucinda Williams (born January 26, 1953) is an American rock, folk, blues and country music singer and songwriter.

She recorded her first albums in 1978 and 1980 in a traditional country and blues style and received very little attention from radio, the media, or the public.

She has since become much more well-known, for obvious reasons. If you don't know who she is or what those reasons are, you will  after you listen to this tune…

Sing Like No One Is Listening (Doggie Style)

Categories // Music, Dance, Movies


dog_plays_piano.pngSusan notes: OMG. I just love this! The note that accompanies it on YouTube says:

Tucker, our one-and-a-half-year-old Schnoodle, plays the piano and sings along at least 3 or 4 times every day. In spite of all of his practicing, he really isn't getting any better at it.
