John Mayer and the Prancercise lady?
I sat puzzled, trying trying to understand this new little internet video. Joanna Rohrback, of Prancercise LLC, gives an introduction, and then Prancercises to a new song of John Mayer’s? Surprise. Is this for real? Did she put this together on her own? Florida is not known for it’s sidewalks. The lady is prancing in the street. As the song played, I stopped the video. Oddness. As if it were my Mom, Auntie Pat, or Auntie Claire enjoying the music of the times. The sweetness of it. His song and her earnestness, almost innocence, the youthful girl still there. (though she is mature, and will be ok, for she seems to have her attorneys in a row by now.)
How unusual, to see this. Communication of the times. Here, bridging generations out loud and for others to see. People accustomed to artfully lit sets and certain, formulaic images of women in music videos are being taken aback by this little video already.
I had to listen again and see it fully. Maybe there is humor, or fun-making in this juxtaposed video presentation. Maybe not.
No matter, the lady is actually “dancing like no one is watching,” standing out in the crowd. And holding her own.
UPDATE JUNE 23, 2013. the paintings of our time. I came to view it again.
I had heard about stairways to climb throughout all of California, including ones in the the Santa Monica and LA areas, during my last visit. I am looking forward to visiting and walking through Southern California again. This time I’d like to have along with me, the book: SECRET STAIRS by Charles Fleming.
“The most scenic of all the city’s stairwalks, this hillside stroll offers sweeping Pacific views, ocean breezes”
Duration: 1 hour, 15 minutes
Distance: 3.2 miles
I miss my dance.
Recently, I saw some Dance-Walking video segments! Individuals or groups of people, ebullient, secular Hari Krishnas, celebrating life and breath, happily dancing along their own roads. For me, this participation in dance, en masse, might be be a bit too all-over-the-place. But, it is nice to see others who enjoy the activity. http://youtu.be/Ib3Duz_6a9M
And, now I see: Prancercise. (Thanks facebook friend of Joseph Mind.) One simply prances along like a pony, and enjoys all the health and fitness benefits. Lymphatic circulation, easy on the knees. Really! Now, I don’t see it as an elegant activity, the Queen probably won’t be doing this. But, on private roads, and garden paths, maybe a little hop-skip? why not?
Makes my smile though, for it does remind me of Monty Python’s horseless, coconut-clacking trotters. “What? Ridden on a horse? You’re using coconuts…”http://youtu.be/JHFXG3r_0B8
The products we use to improve our personal appearance are often extremely harmful to our natural balance of hormones. There are several commonly used ingredients that can be found in everything from body and face lotions to cosmetics and shaving creams which are known endocrine disruptors.
These ingredients can alter hormonal chemistry in a couple of ways. They can increase circulation of certain hormones by mimicking their activity in the body, or they can reduce the level of sex hormones in the body or block their activity. This can impact fertility, lead to early menopause and influence things like mood, length and severity of the menstrual cycle in women.
