"There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good." ~Edwin Denby

Lesson Two:


There's something about being in New York City for the day...just you & your daughter...no cares..no timeframes..

..that makes you a little ...um...cRaZy..



And another surprising message..well..not so surprising to me..New Yorkers are very friendly, courteous and just a little crazy too!

Remember Bear?  My trusty travel companion? Because I (used to) travel alone a lot, I felt I needed a subject for my pictures..or else they'd just look like picture postcards...


So, Bear travels with me and meets a lot of friendly people {read: good sports} who will take time out of their day and pose with Bear...and literally 100% of the time, Bear leaves them ..smiling :-)



Lesson here?  Don't be afraid to have fun..to be silly..to be a goof.  Life is waaaay to short to worry worry worry..

I'm just sayin'...

-me

oh..PS...another lesson? Don't wear your canera on your hip..like a bad fanny pack..

OH this is soooo funny! What would you do without bear...

Can't wait to see more of the trip:)


BTW...the first video of you dancing won't play. Says 'This video is Private' I WANT TO SEE IT!!!

just call me jo said...

You have the most amazing attitude. Though I think you might have pulled a muscle in that dancing escapade. Bear is so contagiously cute. As are you!

What a great idea! Having Bear to photograph personalizes your photos in a very special and clever way!! Besides, what a terrific way to meet people that you wouldn't otherwise meet!

Dancing through life is a goal worth aspiring to. You've definitely got the beat!! Dance on!

They say you should dance like no one's watching.....glad you took the advice and had a great time.

Vicki aka Jake said...

Glad you fixed the dancing video. I'm still giggling :):):)

Now, if you'd just get rid of the un necessary WORD VERIFICATION....

Bossy ain't I

You are so much fun! Love the video. I don't remember reading about Bear. That is a great idea, maybe I should bring someone little with me to Europe since I will be alone 80% of the time.
