Oh man… This makes me want to get a new puppy!
This weekend, a professional surfer went up against a shark, on live TV! I’ve always loved the water, and I go to Minnesota every summer to spend time on the lake. I love the ocean, and have a HUGE respect for marine life. Sharks, while magnificent and incredible animals, scare the absolute crap outta me! 🙂
Watch this clip below from live TV as a shark comes out of water and attacks a surfer’s board. The surfer got away without a scratch, so no worries about any graphic scenes. But be prepared to be amazed, and awed, and maybe a little freaked.
As I was wondering what to blog about this week, reader Layla sent in a link to this wonderful website, Sad and Useless. She linked us to the hilarious Nature is Majestic post, and I can’t stop laughing. So, I’m going to share some of my favorites with you here. Go, look, and get a good laugh!

This past week, the America Ballet Theatre made headlines when they promoted their first African American female to principal dancer. It got me thinking about just how important dance is in our lives. 🙂
I have so many memories I associate with dancing. I feel in love with dance and music at a young age. I was a huge fan of musical movies, I think I saw Seven Brides for Seven Brothers about 100 times before I was even ten or eleven. I’ve been lucky that my mom shares my passion, and for the past ten years or so, we’ve gone out to see a show every year. Some of the best I’ve seen are Phantom of the Opera, RENT, and Fiddler on the Roof.
Some of my other favorite dance memories are of dancing with my Dad at my wedding, taking a Salsa dance class with my husband, and doing the chicken dance with my sister at our cousin’s wedding. I love the way we can express ourselves with dance. Do you have a favorite dance memory?
I leave you today with this: Sergei Polunin, a famous Russian ballet dancer, dancing to Hozier’s “Take Me To Church.” Enjoy!
So, I’m a big fan of searching You Tube for music. I saw this video a long time ago while clicking through other songs.
I, personally, love this version so much more than the rap version. There’s something so haunting and emotional about her voice, with nothing more than the piano accompanying her.
