Fellowship of Saints and Sinners


Friday Fracas (a.k.a. Mental Health Break)

It’s been a while since a musical mental health break, hence this techno interlude from Kaskade.  While the video for “Don’t Stop Dancing” leaves something to be desired, I’m enjoying the lyrics this afternoon- and I must admit that the beat makes for a great get-up when the kids and I need a little extra lift:

Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
World outside you
We’ll let you in
To share the beauty
You hold within

 

Just keep going
Everyday
The silver lining
Is on its way
‘Cause what you long for
Is free
What you stand for
Is to be
Lift your feet up
Off the ground

 

Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl
Don’t stop dancing, girl

 

‘Til you reach it
You won’t know
Just what’s the distance
You’ll need to go

 

But it’s out there
Beyond today
The silver lining
Is on its way

 

‘Cause what you long for
Is free
What you stand for
Is to be
Lift your feet up
Off the ground

[caption id="attachment_5235" align="alignleft" width="339"] Jim Eliot and 4 other missionaries were killed in Ecuador by Auca Indians.

Mental Health Break— "Sea Song" and Lisa Hannigan
This week the theme of the sea put to music especially touched me as our family grieves the loss of my granddad.  My granddad was a lifelong sailor and lover of the sea, and we will scatter some of his ashes on the sea where he used to command our family's annual regatta from Shelter Island, New Yo

"Admiral John": A Granddaughter's Remembrances
It feels a bit like Groundhog Day: wasn't it just a couple months ago that I was sharing a granddaughter's reflections upon the death of a grandparent?  This past Saturday, my granddad John slipped away suddenly to join his late wife Peggy of 68 years who had been his companion until two months ago
