Anna's Windy Leaf Dance

This was such a moment of joyful free expression for Anna that I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try to capture it and pass it on to you. It's never quite the same on video as it is in person, but this gives you a glimpse of how her spirit moves.

She is so alive, living in the moment, reveling in the wind and blowing leaves around her.

I love how she moves, how free she is to express what she is feeling with her whole body and embrace the world around her in all its raw glory and life with all of who she is. I can't tell you how long she stayed outside, dancing barefoot in the blowing leaves and the first drops of rain that were starting to come down. But she did eventually get cold and come inside for some warm Stone Soup that we'd made for lunch.

This might be the most beautiful dancing video I've ever seen. I want to run in the wind with her and spin and twirl. It looks so fun and free. Thanks for sharing Kates!
