Behold the “dance walk from aliveness salon in Portland Maine 6/9/2012.”

“Every other Saturday,” they explain, “the Play Nexus has a salon to explore aliveness.”

“This,” they comment, “is one of our favorites yet.” Adding: “If you want to come play, check out

Such fearlessly life-loving lovelies, these people, leading each other, freeing each other, delighting in an ultimately political act. Taking to the streets. Demonstrating. Engaging each other and those who would join. Manifesting, simultaneously, as one, our fundamental right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    It is such a delight to be following the whee, these days, as it grows, in tandem with my own growth. These play spaces are often the first place I glimpse my own newness. As I watched this again, I realized that it…. Just. Keeps. Getting. Better.
    And it’s a tad astonishing to acknowledge that fully, cuz things are so durn wonderful now, but, they do. I mean, wow. What’s next? What a delicious question? What fun playspace do I get to frolic with others in next? Oh my whee!!!!
    Thanks for posting, and for being so joyous and willing in the shared journey my beloved starling comrade.

      The posting, my fellow starling, is in playful praise of playfulness. I could not withhold.

    Oh my. I have to wonder, if a bunch of people dancing in the street asked me to come dance, I’m not sure if I would. But then, if a kid came along and said “Dance! Dance! Dance!”, I’m not sure I could resist. Just another commentary on society’s view of child-like adults being “weird”, and child-like children being fun.

    Love and laughter,
