Peace within and dance


"May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. 
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us." 
~ St. Teresa of Avila

Saw this quote today and felt like sharing. 
The photo was taken under the bridges of Paris
as part of an art show and seemed to fit.

And speaking of dancing,
this weekend, every June 21st on the Summer Solstice,
Paris holds its Fete de la Musique
which begins at sundown and goes all night. 
Free concerts all over the city
in the streets, bars and cafes. 

So if you're in Paris,
get out there and dance like no one's watching,
feel that presence and sing, dance, praise and love. 

And if you're not in Paris,
turn on some music and dance til you drop.

This is indeed a beautiful quote -- and one that needs to be revisited now and then -- just to keep us all on track.

I think my comment on your post on the book about the Ritz didn't take, but thank you for sharing that. Looks fascinating.
