I love this lady and her spirit.  Did you notice?  She’s wearing a crown.  Both her hands are turned up, and open.  She’s my heroine for the week.   

Happy Monday (even though it’s still Sunday).

Oh, I love her. She reminds me of my Tante Emma, who was round and glorious and rode her bicycle everywhere, even at 80 years old. She could do the chicken dance like no one else on earth.

Thanks for this:)

Oh my stars, this is such perfect timing - on Friday, I met with a counsellor at my cancer institute. She has proposed that I try pulling the curtains in my living room, putting on some "tribal" music, and dancing like no one is watching! How interesting that you post this just two days later!

Happy Monday to you!

I love this! And, I am so glad that you brought up Patience Brewster. When my kids were little, we loved the books "Nobody" and "I Met A Polar Bear." It's nice to know what she is doing these days. All I knew was that those books were out of print.

Jennifer said...

Sallymandy, today I started with your Sunday post, and read back during the week from there. I had not been online much this week to see it. I'm sorry I wasn't here.

I did this yesterday, my daughter put on some music did a little dance, then left the room, so I got to dance by myself.

I love this picture. I wonder what the medium is though. Watercolour?

Your posts are always a highlight of my day, whether they are thought provoking or funny or both! Thank you!

Think I saw her on Britain's got Talent. Or a fan at least.

Ingrid Mida said...

What wonderful energy! It is a lovely reminder to live with the spirit of abandon and joy!

Maria Killam said...

I love that expression, and she's perfect for it!

A Thousand Clapping Hands said...

I do it all the time, Sallymandy. At first glance I thought this was me! Ha!

Hey how did you get that picture of me in my bikini and tiara?!

I've started a diet. I don't fit into anything anymore and I feel disgusting when I look in the mirror. Not good.

But I still - and always will, whatever my weight - dance like no one is watching.

Thank you for this. Sometimes we forget how beautiful we are.

Love, Lola xx

La Belette Rouge said...

What an ebullient expression of joy. Love her!

sarah said...

He he :) She's lovely!

sallymandy said...

Thank you, everyone. Now go get out your ballet or tap shoes and have at it.

I want to meet Tante Emma.

Angela Recada said...

She's the perfect woman with the perfect attitude! I've been looking everywhere for a role model, and here she is!

And if they're watching, hope they enjoy. Yes, dance!
