While following the events at Standing Rock, I ran across something that impressed me that was shared from the “Dancing Earth” fb page,  and so I began following them  (please do check them out if you like powerful dance images).

Nature and Creativity

Sometimes it’s nice to take a break, and if possible, get creative.
Being and playing in nature is especially soothing and healing, and usually offers a variety of non-toxic materials to express our creativity with.
For some of us, getting away isn’t always an option, so here are a couple of videos to provide some much needed respite and perhaps some inspiration too.
