Day 49: Strings and Sneakers

by ashleighpenrod

I cannot believe I forgot about this video. Thank you very much to my Philadelphia dance friend, Molly, who recently re-posted it on Facebook.

As an addendum to the addendum about why we should all dance, I highly recommend you take three and a half minutes to watch this video of Yo-Yo Ma and Lil Buck. It will goose-bump your arms and make your eyes the size of saucers. Yo-Yo Ma plays his cello like a sad and lovely heart, and Lil Buck’s softness and body control is unmatched. Once you’ve watched it, download The Cello Suites by Yo-Yo Ma and glide around your living room. You’ll have fun, I promise.

Did you not click on the link yet? Here it is again. The duet really gets started around 30 seconds in.

And just in case you were wondering (I knew it!), I leave for Australia today! Since I’ll be traveling non-stop for somewhere between the next 24 to 36 hours (I’m very confused by the time changes), I’m posting a guest blog by my mother tomorrow. It’s not cheating because I made the rules.
