Dance Your Heart Out

The beater poised up
Drummers' eyes lock
Lead drummer nods
His beater drops.

Dancers watch
Ears tuned in
Feet ever-light
The beater drops.

Drummers join beats
Song echoes --sweet
Memories flow
All beaters drop.

Regalia flows
Fluid with grace
Dance with the beat
Dancers' feet hop.

Drum and dance
Honor the past
Elders' wish
Dances won't stop.

Drum and dance
Sing the future
Sing for Elders
Dance, dance nonstop.

Friday's Foto 9/23/11

By Tuesday's of each week, this desk is filled with tasks brought in by others, admin and staff. It just keeps piling up.
Hooray! I see the light again! All clear!


All Week
No matter what,
People come with
Paper stuff;

Things to do
Things to check
Do it, please?
We need stuff.

Finally Friday
Sort and sift,
Check √ Done
Cleared off.

Ah, Friday...

During this summer, I enjoyed the sharing photos with my PLN for Paula Naugle and Barbara N's JJA Project: A picture a day for the summer. It was wonderful seeing golf balls at weddings, herb gardens, grandchildren, artsy shots, flowers, insects, etc. We learned tips and tricks of photo work as well as getting to know each other. Although we may have missed a day or two, our group of thirty-four have shared, described, and commented on almost a thousand photos! Thanks to the group for sharing and extending our PLN world view.

Now that the summer has passed, our eyes still see great shots, our fingers itch to snap that scene, and our minds wonder what our buddies see today. Once a connection of sharing is made, it's hard to let go. So one of our group, Denise Krebs, invites us to #FotoFriday, a great way to extend our shutter sharing.

Snap a pic or upload a pic on Friday of each week. Since most of us are teachers, and many FotoFridays already exist, how about we tweet the pics as #TFotoFri ?

Please join us for another round of sharing on Ah...Friday!

Today, Friday, September 9th, my husband, Pooka our dog, and I found a cool spot to relax in the nearly 100° heat:


Looking forward to Fridays! Hope to see you 'round in one shot or another! Let's accept Denise's invitation to share what " keeps my [your]  head spinning and my [your] shutter snapping these days."

Will you accept the invitation?

The August Files

#JJAProject 8/10-8/31 August was hectic, a blur of classes and school preparation. I will post pictures here for the last of the project. Thanks for waiting.
