Flash mob, art and nature

The virtual "Get Me Bodied Flash Mob" on Tuesday Nov 5th -- 7:30am pacific time is on! 
I will be dancing in my little hospital gown and bouffant cap in the Mt. Zion operating room with the surgical and anesthesia teams. My fantasy is for you to play the song (found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RioOJ7dZxuw) and dance wherever you happen to be (in the kitchen, the carwash, subway platform [Dan!], classroom, Labor and Delivery unit, wherever!) -- ideally at 7:30am but really anytime Tuesday. It would be extra remarkable if you could send me a photo (or, better yet, a short video segment) of you dancing (via caringbridge.org or deborahcohan1@gmail.com). I have visions of a healing video montage. Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?

and...another amazing day. I played hooky with Benjamin and Dahlia. I brought them to the Mt. Zion Art for Recovery/Cancer Resource Center. Creative genius Cindy Perlis helped the kids mold their swirling emotions into art. A beautiful morning of connection and expression. Cindy, you are a treasure. Then a beautiful afternoon at Pinehaven Farm (chicken dance photos attached). Thank you Riki for your patience, creative energy, kindness and wisdom.

I seen your video right before I went in for my double mastectomy. As a mom of 4 and being a young 32, you inspired me. Although I went into surgery crying, you gave me hope and smiles! Thank you for your courage to share with the world your story and video. You touched so many going threw the same thing. God bless you!
