echnique–bodily control–must be mastered only because the body must not stand in the way of the soul’s expression. The only reason for mastering technique is to make sure the body does not prevent the soul from expressing itself.

The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking oneself seriously. The first is imperative and the second disastrous.

Taken from the Turkish series Winter Sun now on NetFlix,
II loved this story so much it helped me to be thankful
at this moment in time for all those who have gone before
me and know that my life has been enriched by there
presence and it is only really until we meet again.

Love to all you my dear dn family of friends and to those
you have loved and have had to say goodbye.....

Borak, "Is that Mete? You look so happy."
Sede, "Yes, we were the happiest couple on earth."

Borak, "Where was this ? Seda , "Sile, we would often go there, when he was alive that is."

Borak to Seda,
"I know it hurts but you should count yourself lucky for having
loved someone so much."
We're all going to die someday. It's much better to love someone and lose them, than never finding someone to love.

We all have someone we can't forget, we all do.
I know it feels unbearable sometimes but what if we had
never had them at all ? Imagine what life would be like.
It would be so hard.

The love we feel for them gives our lives meaning, no
matter how much it hurts.I know it all feels too brief but
the love we feel lives on.

What we shared and felt in that short time gives life its
meaning. We'll see them in heaven. In the meantime we should be grateful."

Our Beloved Puppydawg Mr Sunshine Roger,
You have left a huge void in the hearts of your dn family.

Always Carmen & Kitties Picasso & Pasha.

PS Know how much you loved all the work of the great

Beauty is not all there is of poetry. It must contain the truth. It is not simply an oak, rude and grand, neither is it simply a vine. It is both. Around the oak of truth runs the vine of beauty. Robert Green Ingersoll


Our DN Family of Friends, Happy Monday , wishing blessings
and joy for the whole week, God bless, dreams come true.

Hello & Hugs DN Family of Friends of Mine, Greeting from
The Sunshine State of California.......

I have a story to share , I just spoke with my sister-in-law
Elisa on Wednesday. She shared that she recently had
been to our Hollywood Bowl for the summer season.
The renowned Gustavo Dudamel conducted Giselle,
such a beautiful ballet. Two most talented dancers
of the new generation graced the stage & stole
the night with multiple standing Ovations.

Sergie Polunin of Ukrain & Natalia of Russia. Elisa raved, I immediately researched also falling in love with these two beautiful artists. So happy to share the treasure given to
me by Elisa with you....

God bless wishing you & your loved ones a most
lovely & beautiful Sunday....Thank you for your
friendship , it brings meaning me & kitties.
Always Carmen, Picasso & Pasha..........



What is the story behind Giselle?
The ballet is about a peasant girl named Giselle, who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another. The Wilis, a group of supernatural women who dance men to death, summon Giselle from her grave. They target her lover for death, but Giselle's great love frees him from their grasp.
