Several weeks ago I was at my sister’s house for dinner. As we were getting ready to sit down, my 8-year old nieces noticed the pink clouds.
One turned to the other and excitedly pointed out the clouds. Then they collectively decided the next logical move:
A Pink Cloud Dance.
Of course. So obvious.
Off they went into the grassy yard, dancing their pink cloud dance.
As 8-year olds do.
Their enthusiasm was contagious and I joined them in their dance.
For millennia, wise women have connected themselves to the earth by means of dance, celebrating the natural wonders of the universe.
Little girls intuitively know about these wonders. Pink clouds. Fairies. Nature.
They are connected. Until we disconnect them with our programming and ideas about what is acceptable.
What if we stopped doing that? Children can be our teachers and guides to the places inside us that we buried long ago, if we let them.
In that moment, pink clouds changed for me forever. Now when I see pink clouds I immediately remember that this is a sign to dance.
It’s as good a reason as any other.
Pink Cloud Dance.
Life doesn’t always need to be so serious.
PS: This blog post marks my 1,000th consecutive blog post. All the more reason to do a Pink Cloud Dance!! 🧚🏻♀️
