Coming down the half mile driveway is a scenic experience.  Be sure to drive slowly taking in the green field on the left with mama cows & calves, & on the right "driveway parks" carved out of the wild woods to highlight the big trees flowing with Spanish moss.  It's always important to drive slowly keeping a watchful eye for tortoises who may be munching grass, & staying in the tracks, off the grass, median or sides.  Puddles, if present, are not deep, & the tracks are hard underneath, so you can drive right through them, unlike the sides with may be soft & mucky. Enjoy the trip! 
I am one with the Heart of the Mother
I am one with the Heart of Love

I am one with the Heart of the Father
I am one with God.

Ave Maria, Kyrie Eleison
Let me Remember,
Let me Remember
Let me Remember
I am one with God.

Thank you  so very much  for going above and beyond (against all odds!)
I am so happy to have experienced the dance for the New Year.
"A Secret One" was sublime.   Tee Lee
It was just wonderfully fulfilling

          Healing Dance     
1. Ya Shafee, ya Khafee           
    Sidestep left, hands toward center,
    wrists crossed with neighbors
2. Let me do thy will, Allah     
    Face partner or walk left. 
    Open hands raised high, bringing
    hands down, folding over heart
   Allah, Allah                         
   Offer heart in cupped palms, opening
   up & out, as a cup, offering love.
3. La illaha illa 'llah   (inner circle)   shoulder to shoulder, fingers interlaced
Thanks you Diana for your leadership in creating & sustaining this event over the years, and to Patrick for his excellent photography.           Isabel
I especially like the picture of the 3 different types of shoes:  a clever shot that says a lot about how the dances are open to all types. I really liked the song at the end with the bells. What a great way to "ring" in the new year!           Jean McCauley

Beloved Lord, Almighty God,
Through the rays of the sun,
Through the waves of the air,
Through the all-pervading life in space,
Purify and revivify me, and I pray
Heal my body, heart and soul.

Hazrat Inayat Khan
"On a metaphysical level, when you sing your heart opens.  That's why
   all religions & traditions have made so much of singing in their rituals. 
 When the heart opens, you feel good.  It's that simple."      Deva Premal
