When she appeared swaying

The beauty of my lover infatuated us.

No one can relieve my suffering from my love sickness

But the queen of beauty.

Lamma Bada Yatathanna, Translated to English, Author Unknown

The celebration of creativity continues.

In Braving the Wilderness, Brené Brown describes art as a “shared expression and a deep collective experience.” The performance video below fits the bill.  In it, the lovely Jasmine performs an improvisational dance to Joe Michael’s modern instrumental twist of the classic Lamma Bada Yatathanna.  Enjoy!
