Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner

By Sabrina Matheny • Rumble Contributor | I attended an event over the weekend that struck a chord deep within my being.  The occasion was the celebration of a young couple’s marriage.  The whole evening was surreal as I watched the love everyone held for these two families climax reaching its peak and exploding as the music started playing and tribal movement took over.  The room felt electric as women of all ages started tuning into their unique rhythm and allowing it to overtake their bodies while simultaneously stomping out any lingering bits of self-consciousness with each beat.  There were men dancing as well and many of them could cut a rug, but they could not hold a candle to the fire emanating from these women moving in sync with their spirit!

We don’t plan to change that model.
