Okay y’all. I’m not gonna lie. It was an awesome week and a tough week all rolled up in one. So I felt that I needed to have a PADS Saturday and share it with you. If you’re new, or missed the previous posts, PADS stands for Public Acts of Dancing Spontaneously and it is something that never fails to make me feel better. And this Saturday’s clip is a doozy.
So you never know what’s gonna happen in NYC. On this particular day, Coyote of Coyote & Crow decided to perform Grateful Dead’s Version of “Me & My Uncle” at Bedford Ave. Williamsburg NYC. The song is awesome and naturally it got some toes tappin’. And then this little girl decided to take it to 11.
I love that she feels free to dance her little heart out. I love that she doesn’t feel like she needs to be Beyonce or Lady Gaga. She just boogies down in her hat and little pink coat. And that’s my wish for all little girls everywhere. That they can love themselves and love their bodies and live outside of self consciousness long enough to bust a move in the subway if the feeling takes them.
Here’s to lifting your heart and dancing through your day.
