Venus Sings by Reza Rites

Month

December 2020

It may be customary to hold your NYE dance party at night, but through all the muck and fertilization-making of 2020, one big lesson I learned, over and over again, is that we are responsible for our own peace and party life – even if we are also open when offers come our way. To that end, I dance now to say goodbye to the year that’s been, and to rhythmically welcome the one at our doorsteps now. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites.

P.S. enjoy the clips attached here, from Tuesday’s session, and join me in the stories for the fresh steps.

Staycation nonnegotiables, 12.29.20: Eat. Nap. Dance. Check (and to check again). Check. Fi’nna check.

Jam out to the leftover clips from Saturday’s session or join me in the stories for the Fresh and Clean. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

The lippy was meant to be festive. I think it could also serve as visual effects make-up, too.

Obligatory holiday food post. Actually, though, I feel quite grateful to have the resources to prepare and enjoy a meal, and the community with whom to share it. My imagination has enjoyed feasting on the delightful dinners and desserts that many of you have shared; my contributions here are, in fact, another humble offering on the #nomnom alter. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

Twas the day
After Christmas
During holiday
Vacation
A nap
Called softly
But louder was
Dance nation

With a full calendar
Coming
And the subsequent
Dread
I’ll dance now
Thought the woman
And rest
When I’m dead

(Or till the only
Spinning
Comes from
My tired head)

– Reza Rites

P.S. New dance session NOW and in the stories
