“LSD” as in laughter, singing and dancing.
The other day, my loftmate Abigail and I, and six other people (I won’t call us all dancers) performed a dance as part of a service at Judson Memorial Church, which is Abigail’s church. We danced to Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.” It was ridiculously fun and Judson has a long history of dance performances by both famous dancers (Twyla Tharp) and not famous (us). I had exactly two rehearsals — and it was a bit scary, but so much fun!
And – I’m embarrassed to recommend yet another book, but I will. This one is called “Reinventing Yourself” – How to Become the Person You’ve Always Wanted to Be – by Steven Chandler. Steve Chandler coined the LSD phrase. I found the book because Mama Gena (Regena Thomashauer) the woman whose fantastic workshop I took, recommended it. She works with Steve as her career coach and she managed to turn her life around after a very challenging divorce. I picked up the book and it has so many great messages – the first one being about “victim” vs. “owner” of your life. A victim lives a comfortable life, safe job, doesn’t take risks. An owner takes many chances, tests himself, fails often, picks him/herself up and continues on, taking more chances. It’s definitely a scarier, but much more interesting way to live.
