"To be happy! Dance to the end of love." Leonard Cohen
I am moved by music, positive energy  and pure happiness. This was me at Diner en blanc Montreal in August. My happiness was caught in a moment of dance and classic rock thanks to Sean Mollet Photographer extraodinaire for snapping a moment in time I cherish. This will be my new focus.

This is me, happy dancing at Diner en blanc Montreal in August. I am grateful to Sean Mollett Photographer who happened to snap random shots of the street dancing. You can see his reflection in my iphone. I can use this photo as a reference to the memory of happiness I need to surpass. Snap a photo of yourself and capture your essence!  Happy, dancing and in love with life.

Can an act of kindness of a recylced skateboard translate into hope and stop the cycle of poverty? That is the quest Betty Esperanza is trying to achieve by building sustainable skateboard communities in impoverished territories in Cuba and First Nations.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Puppy Skateboards For Hope @ UnderPressure (by SKATEBOARDS FOR HOPE)

I met #Oprah in #Montreal in April via a Pay it Foward Contest organized by #MontrealHomeMagazine I had the chance to tell her about my community work and about #SkateboardsForHope She even mentioned me on stage telling the audience about how dreamers dream big even bringing skateboards to Africa. Mostly, what impressed me was her rags to riches story of hard work, determination and hope. Oprah is inspiring!  (at Skateboards For Hope)
