I Hope You Dance

This post is half a joke and half a legit revelation. After a less-than-kind weekend/start to the week, i found myself cruising the interwebz and landing on this gem:

This video is awful. The song is also irritatingly repetitive. However, on closer listen, and trust me it shocked me too, you will note that Lee Ann is kind of an inspirational life coach.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

Never settle for the path of least resistance

Livin’ might mean takin’ chances but they’re worth takin’

AND the best line: And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance…I HOPE YOU DANCE!

Yes, this is horribly cheesy and off-putting, but goddammit I need some real sap to get through this week.


This lovely specimen of a grade 7 Neha and myself comes to you courtesy of my living room in Zimbabwe circa 2002, where I know we were dancin’ up a storm. Be still my <3.

  1. Hey Susie, I saw you asked for access to my blog – in fact, that one’s just a test blog for me, there’s nothing there. My real blog is kitlangfiberart.blogspot.com, although it may not be of interest to you, it’s just where I talk about the process of making my art. Cheers,
