Rhythm

By Everett Yeung, Honokai Hale

There are many body rhythms determined by the needs of the body and by outer influences and no matter how little you think you have, "You Got Rhythm."

 "Whenever you have truth it must be given with love, or
the message and the messenger will be rejected”

There are influences by the moon, - sets moods, invigorates them when it is full. Statistically there are more accidents at full moon than otherwise. The moon also stimulates hormones in the body, e.g. fertility. Hair cut at full moon grows more slowly than when cut at new moon.You didn't know that?


The sun has a daily cycle, it resets our wake and sleep patterns every day. Electric light disturbs the cycle, prolonging the natural night. The sun also causes color rays on earth, which each do certain things. Rainbows? Certain medications are better tolerated in the morning than at night; alcohol is better tolerated in the evening than in the morning. Most of us have a very good idea of how the body reacts to the sun. We are or should be refreshed in the morning, tired in the evening,


A very long time ago, right about the time that agriculture began, humans began to delight in banging on something with something to a regular steady beat. This is now known as the even rhythm, a combination of steady, consistent beats that are identical in the meter and get the same time value. This is quite acceptable in dancing such as the popular Merengue and Waltz and it can be used in music wiith any beats per measure. But of course, first you gotta enjoy moving to the music.

If you can learn to dance to any music by just using the even steps in time to the even rhythm, you can certainly learn to dance. With the addition of learning the rock step and the chasse and a Dance Club or a Dance Studio, you could become an excellent dancer.
