Comment of the Day!


I had the great fortune to know Juliu Horvath. Like Dancers, we know things about the body in a way that others don't, and we share them with each other because we share the love of dance and the pain and grief of not being able to. Juliu was a self taught healer that healed many dancers in NYC. He was a sought after, self taught accupuncturist as well, and the only one who understood and remedied my back and hip pain. I experienced early on, that training is not necessarily the key to healing, though non training is not either. It is a key called love and a deep connection to the subject, that unlocks the healing potential and I will always be grateful to Julio for what he taught me about myself and the healing process..

Happy Friday!


Never leave a friend behind. Friends are all we have to get us through this life–and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in the next.

– Dean Koontz


121517ErineshaGood morning GLOBers. The GLOB Master is in a maudlin frame of mind with this being the last Daily GLOB for 2917. And it all has to do with friendship. I have been the GLOB Master for seven years. And I think the best thing about that accomplishment is the friendships I have made. The enduring friendships that will never leave me, and those friends that disappeared this year. I found a link for friendship quotes that has me thinking of my new friends in 2017: Erinesha Hamilton, image above, , Chaya Sharon Heller, and Kristina Steinfeldt. I am left wondering about what happened with some friends this year: Jules Gollner and Kristna Steinfeldt. There are my lifelong friends I think I can rely on forever like Jon Roosenraad, Andy Caldwlell, Gary Miller, Lynn Dirk,and Erica Corbett. And of course the GLOB Staff pictured above of wonderfully smart, accomplished, and capable individuals Lynn Dirk, Michelle Cardell, Melissa Kahan, Nicole Caldwell, Erica Corbett and Chaya Sharon-Heller. I need to stop or I could fill this page up with family, and many other valuable people in my life. So let's get to the point of the weekend events why we really do this Happy Friday thing:
