Venus Sings by Reza Rites

Today I reflect on the time I was able to emote my sense of gratitude and purpose-alignment with Dr. King’s legacy – through poetry. Like King, I don’t want to lead my people into a burning house. Yet, also like King, I fear a path not soaked in the light of love. I am not naive to the hate; personally, it is just not my best tool.

Sunshine and laughter,
Reza Rites

Forgiveness. Sometimes it is an attitude you want directed your way, and sometimes it is a force that has to take shape within. Today, I dug in, to muster forgiveness after a week that contained very little dancing despite the countless benefits I’ve reaped from its inclusion. As I feel old habits and familiar folds try to take shape, I forgive myself for not getting it all right all the time. Tonight I dance because if I failed to forgive my best friend, I would be stuck, motionless, but full of negativity. Tonight I dance as an act of loving myself, flaws and all, forgiveness on fleek (or whatever the kids say these days). Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

Practically naked
Without glasses
Metaphysically lifted
With love

Sunday’s are for sangria and singing out-loud. At least this one is for me. Join me in the stories if you need a workout buddy, or vibe out to the attached clips from my last session – and from today’s home-making sangria. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites
