Magic of Dance : The learning in the sharing...

I went to teach these kids in my spare time
And came back with learnings for a lifetime .

I went there with a dance lesson to impart 
And I came home with a gladdened  heart

I reached out to hold one hand today 
And I was surrounded with tiny arms in sway

I shared with them some fun and glee
And I got in touch with the spirit of dance in me 

I understand they may not see my face ever
But their memories are now my hearts  treasure forever.

These are a few children in the circle of love 
Who cannot see but live happily in the now

For them time is in the sound they hear 
Before you arrive they can sense you near

Life is a vision they imagine and sense 
Their every movement is real without pretense

They have their insecurities loud and clear 
But its  their spirit of resilience that makes them dear 

Every step in their way is a test of skill
But they march on with steel in their will.

Yes I am grateful to interact with them upclose... 
To sense the happiness that's within us, if we chose!

Today I embark on a new journey . I wish me luck and hope to succeed in my endeavour . Am meeting the children of the blind school in Koregaon Pune and hope to introduce them to some Ballroom dancing. Technically knowing to dance well is not equivalent to knowing to teach dance well  and more so with the challenges in the making . I had promised  myself to visit and see if I can help bring any positive shift in my capacity . I have no clue as to how I am going to acheive this and yet trust to  simply  flow with the rhythm and beat of the moment.At the moment my entire being is tuned in to that moment of connection when I actually meet the children.(my reflections before the session )

I thank  Mr Uddhav a Compassionate Volunteer at the school  for introducing me to these endearing children. I look forward to seeing the children again .
