Sometimes activism means doing things that are hard, stepping out of our comfort zones, even being courageous. Yet we need balance. If we are to be in it for the long fight, sometimes we need ease. At my ecstatic dance today, Jo Anna Dane – wonderful coach and dance facilitator
– encouraged us to “play with ease”, and she played a lot of very sweet music that encouraged this. My favorite song was Beauty in the World by Macy Gray.
