Get the picture?



Let’s dance.



You just made the world a brighter place with inner exploration. The business of awakening and Life Mission stuff is deep work. Celebration and refreshment following soul-deep exploration helps to prevent depletion, reset the energy, and nourish the soul. Sometimes we need a little respite, a gratitude break and to fill up again.

Communing with nature will do that. Joy will do that. An inner smile will do that- here’s one for you…

Brought to you by those talented people who chose courage and to share their gifts with us. The world thanks you. And… Thank God for DANCE.

    All that AND the Nicholas Brothers??!! YYYeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhh!!!!
    That was great fun – wow did Michael stand out in that montage!
    Your mention of refreshment and celebration brought to mind the oh-so refreshing words of one master, Mikhail Barishnikov, about another, Michael Jackson, when he said that it was impossible to be as good or be able to do what Michael Jackson did, and so what should be done is to relax, sit back and ENJOY Michael. The humbling humility of a true master.
    Cause for celebration. And an attitude to live by, I reckon.
    p.s. thanks for helping us make the world a better place, as you say we have. Thank-you forever Rev. B.

    Take another look at the Nicolas Brothers- you might be surprised by a signature Michael Jackson “move.” I couldn’t believe my eyes; looks like Michael actually wasn’t the first to do it.
    (Who can find the move?)

    It’s a “hand over the jewels” move. Find it?

    Ah hah ha! It was so fast and barely glancing of the jewels I wasn’t sure that was it, but when I watched several times I wondered if I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. So funny.

    I grew up Italian in a steel town and way back when people started asking why is Michael grabbing his crotch, I couldn’t understand why they were asking that. When you grow up in a steel town full of Italians, crotch-grabbing is a language of contempt among men.

    In Cuba its a language of contempt among men and women but with women it is more of a glancing smack in the general area, something like the glancing smack off her backside Janet Jackson gives the camera in Scream.

    I always thought Michael was amazing to have incorporated the language into the dance – and then when you pointed out the horrible historical reference to the desecration of black male genitalia in the United States, I thought it was not only amazing, but also, of course, genius. We all know how well-read Michael was in Black History. Thanks!

    I do think he may have indeed been making a statement about racism. And, I suspect contempt was part of it. Of course, when asked, he would not have gotten away with a truthful answer. But some pop culturists would not have missed the message in the gesture. And I suspect many White men didn’t either, especially Southern men, I imagine. Of course they couldn’t say why they were angered either. Checkmate.

    His new gesture was so shocking at the time that prudent and proper White America didn’t know what to do with him– it was so scandalous. I wonder how long it took him to pry his tongue from his cheek. (Some stations refused to air the film.) Now contemporary street dancers have to hold their crotch to keep their pants up. Ha! ~B

    What a wonderful video. I love the fact that there we so many who influenced Michael and that I grew up watching. Also, I noticed the Nicholas Brothers as well. Everyone is so gifted. Thank you and Namaste!
