Dance

Theme : (82) Dance
Sufism. Sufi dance is a physically active meditation practiced by Sufi Dervishes.
This dance is worth witnessing, as the calm atmosphere & the soothing music that accompanies the dance, puts the viewer too, in a meditative & calm frame of mind.

This is wonderful Pushpa...it is beautiful and interesting and has excellent movement also the reflection on the floor is a nice touch.

Thank you for asking about finding me on D.W. The name link "The Painted Garden" appears at the very bottom of the artists list on the right hand side. For some reason they have never been able to install an icon for me.
I post one picture everyday so there is alway something new. Thank you so much for your lovely comments I so appreciate your support in this challenge.

There is a calmness in your piece and yet I can feel the energy, too. Really nice ...
