This Moment: Zombie Attack

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words some words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary crazy, bizarre, intense moment. 

A moment I want to remember, because it took a lot of courage to step out of my comfort zone and learn to do the Thriller Dance in front of audiences as part of the professional STL Flashmob! Everything from putting on the make-up (I usually hate make-up) to attending rehearsals with complete strangers, to dancing in front of crowds at weddings and events, to acting fiercely zombieish... it was all new and a little bit scary.

But it was a wonderful experience! I learned a three and a half minute dance by heart. I am completely okay with the fact that I'm really not a great dancer, because I found out how much fun it is to dance with others! I was happy to dance as a zombie because to me, it was a reminder that death has no power, even though I think that when we truly come back to life we won't look quite so beat up ; )  Best of all, I made new friends, young and old, who I will continue to keep in contact with and see often! 

If you'd like to check out what our flashmob does, follow this link!

Also, please come share your moment with me in the comment section!

Good for you! I'm a rubbish dancer but it still makes me feel good when I do it, and I'm full of admiration for you pushing your boundaries and taking it further. Have a great weekend.

For one, that is awesome! Two, I'm green with envy that you are in a flashmob. And amen about death not having power. Now I'm thinking of something on Halloween that made me laugh out loud and maybe I should blog about it.
