My table I just made 👼 BALANCE is always the theme at Equinox: check yourself to see where you are out of balance physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. One of my favorite rituals is to write down everything you want to overcome to leave behind and burn it in a violet candle, while thinking of all the things you want to manifest & take their place 🚀🌒🌜

Kirikou et la Sorcière (Kirikou and the Sorceress, 1998)

So this is a series?….

No, it’s a movie called Kirikou and the Sorceress. I love this movie.

Me too!

“This October Knopf will release Taking Flight: From War Orphan to Star Ballerina, a YA memoir co-authored by Michaela and her mother, Elaine DePrince, tracing Michaela’s journey from a life of war and poverty in Africa to renown as a classical ballerina. While the book’s subtitle gives the story a magical aura, the dancer is firm in her assertion that “people think my life is a fairy tale, but it’s far from it.” She and her mother wrote the book to chronicle the hard work, perseverance, dedication and family support that it takes to pursue a dream.”
