2016 has brought us a lot of disappointment lately and it sucks ass.
We just gained a President that has made us fear for our country and lost so much.
This includes a great artist that had a profound impact for my life and my future: David Bowie.
I first saw this man in an awesome movie called : Labyrinth. He was decked out in a sparkly cape, weird elf-fairy eyes and legs that slayyed in them tight pants. Well… along with his HUGE … “presence”.
Tuning into the song ” Magic Dance ” today was a welcome distraction . The Lyrics got me thinking …
We are now beginning the dance.
Dance is defined as a movement to a designated rhythm. That’s it basically. It also dawned on me that the best kind of dances are those that sought to break the rules and send a message to the establishment.
Right now our country is in such a place. Our current President and his chosen group are trying to set the basic waltz with only steps that they deem worthy. Not this time.
On January 21st, I marched with 130,00 people in Seattle for the Women’s March. Together we created our own dance and set our own rhythm. We dance to the beat of women’s rights and protecting the rights of equality. We marched to the beat of defiance in the eyes of a government that would seek to keep us in the darker ages thinking that we would and will stay complacent and reserved.
It’s time to join the dance and set our own rules. The new forbidden dance: Feminism. We ARE the Babes with the Power. Here are some of the things we can do together:
1.Write to your Senator. Click here to find yours.
2.Follow The Women’s March Website to join in their action.
3.Sign up for Women’s Rights Groups in your area. Check your local NOW website here.
4.Show up. The more of us who show up to events the more people will pay attention
5.Let’s dance! Be the dance of power like in the Labyrinth, Be the dance of Defiance like in Footloose, Be the dance of individuality and freedom like in Dirty Dancing. Show the Government you are not afraid to Tango!
Now let’s see if they can follow the steps!
