Happy 10th Anniversary to Blush of Dawn!

 I took this summer at Cape Cod

Ten years ago today I wrote my first post on this blog Blush of Dawn. I put the date in my calendar after I had returned to the blog this year and had revisited the first post. 

Here is that post written on December 3, 2010:

Nighttime in the Garden

Dance in the light
Dream in the darkness
Revel in what comes easy
Be at peace with what is hard

Smile at the flower
Set a place for the stone

Dance in the light…Why not 🙂
I recorded this video around sunrise today. So it’s not meant to be authentic and I didn’t choreograph it first ‘though I had an idea. The only experience I have with belly dancing is watching a 5 minute YouTube intro video a few months ago and then later on reading a novel that mentioned it, The Drum Symbol by Alexis P. Johnson, which I reviewed on this blog. Then I just did my own.
I thought I’d add some subtle yoga. The song is called “Challenge the Tabla,” and the tabla is an Indian percussive instrument, and as you might know yoga originated in India.
