“What A Feeling” Lyrics by Irene Cara

First when there’s nothing but a slow glowing dream that your fear seems to hide deep inside your mind. All alone I have cried silent tears full of pride in a world made of steel,made of stone. Well, I hear the music,close my eyes, feel the rhythm,wrap around, take a hold of my heart. What a feeling. Bein’s believin’.I can have it all, now I’m dancing for my life. Take your passion and make it happen. Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life. Now I hear the music,close my eyes, I am rhythm. In a flash it takes hold of my heart. What a feeling. Bein’s believin’.I can have it all, now I’m dancing for my life.[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]Take your passion and make it happen. Pictures come alive, now I’m dancing through my life. What a feeling. What a feeling I AM MUSIC NOW Bein’s believin’. I AM RHYTHM NOW Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life.

Too late to hunt for my trackback, but smooth timing to witness embodiment of a classic Przybysz quote. What an exquisite night of synchronicity arising after equally sad and joyous life events. with life, we take it all, embrace it, and feel humbled for every opportunity. Intrinsic Motivation
S.A.L.S.A.!

I may have alluded to it, but I would need to check whether I cited it.

“But [Dr.] Horn said he believes Peyton will be back. ‘A lot of what dictates how people heal is their mental makeup,’ Horn said. ‘There’s no doubt he’s got a pretty strong mental makeup, and he’s got a great amount of fortitude and determination.’ ”

Dr. Horn is my spinal surgeon at Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine. I am preparing questions for him, and recalled the Peyton Manning link prior to our initial meeting. PM has been playing for Denver since then, and I have quipped to myself and in passing to others, about using his outcome as a sort of barometer in contemplating the timing of any surgery to address tumors and cysts compressing substantial portions of my spinal cord. (As amusing an anecdote as that may serve, I have a matrix of time-varying covariates at play–the greatest of which are quite serious. Always remember: laughter is a healing force in itself.) There are many fascinating asides here, but suffice it to say Dr. Lou places a whole lot of stock in fundamentals and preparation, while never neglecting the importance of INTANGIBLES. Come to find out, PM was born in the same year as I was, and we have more in common than I would have guessed when he was a QB for that orange-colored uniform school.

I am a fan of intangibles**, I am bringing quite the mental orientation and experience necessary for Team Przybysz to shine. Glad to know it factors into coach’s play book.

Now is the time to be receptive to the positive unknowns.

** Many folks saw Manti Te’o pushing the broom at the basketball game. I noticed him costumed as one of the zamboni drivers at the hockey game. TCB

Shout-out to Sky and NDWBB, following elevator ride with Assistant Coach Beth Morgan Cunningham. (No inadvertent autograph, as with the Hesburgh/Joyce elevator moment.)

GO IRISH!

What is the answer to challenges and adversity?

My nephews started it and ended it again. The best weekends culminate in some bonus synchronicity arising from reflexive
integration.

Last night delivered ND Football’s final home game of this season. Most triumphant!*

Today (well, yesterday now), NDWBB intensified Przybysz’s upper-body workout.

Assists! The beauty of flow, when a pass is thrown such that it is caught as if the scorer had the ball all along; some passes even defying physics like a bullet in “The Matrix,” threading crevices — the in-betweens only perceptible by the deftest point-guards and quarterbacks — perfect timing, poetry in motion.

3-point plays eclipsing 3-point goals

Video board ambivalence (I am largely a purist there–fine with leaving Jumbotrons and the like to pro sports arenas, as viewed from home.)

And yet, in the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center, it does enhance the game experience and community, in more than just a glitzy, superficial way. I do not ~need~ all the extras, but they work; they humanize; they connect and spread smiles (and dance moves). Oh, and replays and highlights: kudos to the crews!

How about information? What is being shared over the P.A., even more importantly: player jokes and anecdotes?

+++++
I think it’s in the works, although it may have been a vision similar to Jake seeing the light***.

Open captions!

Did anyone else notice the slice****?

* Just 11 games after that good-sport natured,”Good luck with that.”

** Soc psych: happy sharing fun and laughs, infectious smiles; Hawaiian ice guy, chicken toss

*** “The Blues Brothers” motion picture reference

**** One of the best moments Saturday night was the sense of community, thanks to the “What would you fight for?” spotlight being Closed-Captioned. “And our hearts forever…”

It’s a course I didn’t get up to in my CE/GEOS curriculum, yet I have been reflecting on it more recently–particularly with respect to air as a fluid, walking on land, and walking in the pool. Two weeks of M-W-F visits to the therapy pool, and we missed Monday, but we were back today. Again, the Yin/Yang aspects of proper form and relaxation, drew my attention. What’s nice about having my background (athletically and via medical recoveries), is all I internalized and stored in my toolbox without realizing. So much was turned into fun play, even when it was work. The breakthrough today was at least double. First, I decided to ditch the noodle and take advantage of the forgiving fluid in the pool. This put more of my attention on the tactile sensation of my feet, and a more natural striding motion of my hands and arms, which contribute to better form. (In-between, some of these sessions when I’ve really set out to bolster strength/form/balance, I evaluated my mental approach, also. My orientation in the past had been to be receptive to improvements, but not expectant. I set out today with a commitment to relaxation.) Instead of getting bogged down in the lack of roll/elasticity from heel to toes and propelling forward while fending with excessive lateral dips, I was back in my comfort zone of enjoying learning how my body moves, and controlling what I still can(#2 breakthrough from the woman who taught me to walk again again again).

Moments of flow.The process is still the product.

What we’re talking about is not just a 3-ring circus.

I noticed. 8~)
