IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Bindi Irwin wins Dancing with the Stars with performance dedicated to father

I’m a very happy camper.

I’m so very happy that Bindi and Derek won the mirrored trophy. Their effort, dedication, talent and energy showed throughout Season 21.

Bindi is a a breath of fresh air, poor unabashed joy.

Her love of her family shone through the 11 weeks that the show lasted.

I’m excited for her and Derek.

I will miss waiting for every Monday to watch the “next dance”. Thank you Bindi, thank you Derek.

Unforgettable season.

The 17-year-old daughter of Steve Irwin says show has ‘changed her life’ as she is announced winner of the US reality show with partner Derek Hough. They triumphed in the final of the reality TV show on Tuesday night, November 25, 2015.
Clem Bastow

The pair got a perfect score of 30 for their final dance routine and brought audience members to tears.

“Thank you so much for everything.

I can’t believe I’m here.

Thank you for changing my life,” Irwin said.

Irwin, who like her her father Steve Irwin works as a conservationist and a TV presenter, has been impressing audiences with her dancing flair during the past three months.

Steve Irwin died in 2006 after a stingray stuck its barb into his heart, and his daughter’s final Dancing with the Stars performance on Monday, November 23, 2015,  was dedicated to him.

First she and Hough danced quickstep to Dr. Bones, by Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, and then moved to a freestyle dance to Footprints in the Sand, by Leona Lewis.

In a video intro to the dance, Hough said: “It reminds me of where you’re from and your dad always being there no matter what.”

Irwin said: “I’ve tried to just remember his strength, knowing that Dad is kind of still with me.”

FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND

I’ve been following this season with more enthusiasm than ever before. From the day Season 21 started, I’ve been following, admiring and rooting for Bindi.

Last night, the freestyle which Derek choreographed for her was simply amazing and unforgettable.

She has been consistent in her performances. She has improved so much as the weeks have passed. She seems to be older than her years. The support of her family and loved ones has been remarkable. The presence of her father, Steve, has been quite notable.

Tonight is the night.

I’m holding my breath because I really hope she wins the mirrored trophy.

I found this YouTube video which shows the complete evolution, the practice, the reasoning, the performance and the judging of the dance.

I think it’s worth a watch.

Bindi Irwin reduces Dancing With The Stars audience to tears as she breaks down during emotional performance in memory of her late father Steve

BIANCA SOLDANI FOR DAILY MAIL AUSTRALIA

There was hardly a dry eye in the Dancing With The Stars arena on Monday night after frontrunner Bindi Irwin took to the stage for a heartfelt tribute dance.

The Australian teenager couldn’t keep her composure and fell sobbing into the arms of her partner Derek Hough, after a childhood image of herself with her late father Steve flashed up at the end of her sequence.

The judging panel and studio audience members were visibly moved by the outpouring of emotion and many were seen wiping their eyes.

Though Bindi bared her fangs throughout, it was more likely her on-point routine that earned her and Hough their perfect score from the judges’ panel rather than her ability to channel her evil side.

Bindi Irwin & Derek’s “ArgentineTango”

Week 7  DWTS Season 21

(Halloween Night)

Published on Oct 27, 2015

Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough – ‘Vampire Queen’ Argentine Tango

It’s hard to overstate just how dedicated and positive Bindi is.

Derek’s words here give us a hint:

“Since it’s Halloween, I’ll leave you with a story that is simultaneously gross and indicative of how awesome Bindi is. Yesterday, she had her socks off and my jaw dropped to the floor when I saw her feet.

Three of her toenails have fallen off, she had huge blisters all over and bruises on her knees.

It was not pretty!

She was like, “Oh, yeah, they fell off yesterday. That one was bleeding last night.” I was like, “Bindi, you gotta tell me.” And she was like, “Oh, it’s nothing.” I said, “No, I gotta know when you’re hurting.” She was like, “No, really, I’m fine. It’s not a big deal.”

I’ve had partners who needed to take a 20-minute break if it’s one little blister.

Bindi is a badass.”

VIENNESE WALTZ

I love this show.

It’s so much more now because of Bindi.

I think she is a refreshing ray of sunlight, a genuine child who has grow before our eyes.

She has shown stamina, talent and so much more.

I can’t help but smile when I see her perform.

As I watch this dance, I get goosebumps and feel a tight knot in my throat and feel tears of emotion start to flow.

I wish her the best now that the semifinals are upon us.

Bindi Irwin waltzes into perfection on Dancing With The Stars again

Bernard Zuel
Senior music writer

Can you improve on perfection?

It seems you can if you’re Bindi Irwin and the American TV network hosting Dancing With the Stars.

Already a favorite of viewers and judges, Irwin and her dance partner, Derek Hough, performed a traditional Viennese waltz to the song “Roses And Violets” on this week’s episode. Well, ok, “traditional” if blindfolds had been de rigueur on dance floors along the Danube 200 years ago, but this is not the time to quibble.

In any case, Irwin and Hough, didn’t just impress, they earned perfect tens from each of the judges who had been left gibbering in their wake.

The performance also secured her a place in next week’s semi-finals.

As one judge put it, “every week you’re so flawless” and another gushed that watching it had been like “watching a sunrise”. Luckily though the declaration from the third judge that the dance “spoke for itself”, didn’t quite hold, much to the relief of the show producers who still had some time to fill.

Those who have been keeping a Bindi eye on the competition so far, a perfect score is both rare, for others, and becoming commonplace for the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, who has received the honor three times now.

Bindi and Derek have won the top score in the competition seven out of the past nine weeks.

It isn’t that long ago that this pair earned perfect scores from the three regular judges and guest adjudicator Olivia Newton John, for a dance set to, and modeled on, “The Time Of My Life” from the film Dirty Dancing.

GoldSwirlBWCrickeyGoldSwirl

Breathless and beaming after her dance, and before the scores were announced, Irwin showed her shaking hands and said “this dance has meant so much and it’s so beautiful … that I can’t stop shaking when I’m doing it”.

Irwin thanked Hough via Instagram over the weekend.

“Even when I’m super tired he gives me strength and encourages me to keep trying my best and always believe. You’re the greatest big brother I could ever ask for,” she wrote.

I can not believe that due to technical difficulties I wasn’t able to watch Monday’s DWTS episode “Famous Dance” night!

I will have to wait until I can watch “on demand”, on Hulu or on ABC.com.

I have to wait several days to be able to watch it.

However, I searched and found this awesome video and the news that Bindi and Derek danced to a “Dirty Dancing” scene.

And better yet, nailed a perfect score.

WootWoot!

Way to go!

I’m rooting for you both.

And for their upcoming dance on Monday night, Bindi and Derek are set to pay homage to one of film’s most iconic moments, recreating Dirty Dancing’s “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” routine as part of the ABC reality hit’s “Famous Dance” night.

~~April 2, 2015~~ 

STOP. THINK. RESPECT.

I found this video today as I was surfing the net, looking for interesting topics.

My world has been reeling for a while and it became worse when this stupidity about the  national outrage over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, signed by Gov. Mike Pence on Friday, March 27, 2015.

There has been huge backlash since the signing of this law.

It’s making me think … it’s discrimination at its best against the LGBTQ community.

However, let’s consider other minorities: African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic, Latinos, Jews, left handed people, brown eye people, Muslims …. the list is endless.

If this isn’t stopped …. you could be the next one. And it happens everywhere.

Beyondblue’s national campaign highlighting the impact of racism on Indigenous Australians

Beyondblue recently released a new campaign named ‘Invisible Discriminator’. This campaign is aimed at drawing attention to subtle racism experienced by Indigenous Australians  and the ongoing negative effect racism can have on Indigenous mental health.

The television advertisement was released in response to national data and a BeyondBlue survey of 1000 Non-Indigenous Australians. The survey found that almost ten per cent of non-Indigenous respondents would not hire an Aboriginal jobseeker, based on their cultural identity. One in ten said they would avoid sitting next to an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person on public transport, and one in three people said they believe Indigenous Australians are sometimes a “bit lazy.” Of the males surveyed, more than a quarter said it was hard to treat Indigenous Australians equally to everybody else. “We have launched this campaign to tell people that it doesn’t matter if it’s subtle or overt – racism is still racism and it ruins lives. Australian Bureau of Statistics data tells us that Indigenous Australians are twice as likely to die by suicide as non-Indigenous Australians, and are almost three times more likely to experience psychological distress. Racial discrimination contributes to these tragic statistics and it’s about time things changed,” Beyondblue chairman, the Hon. Jeff Kennett AC said.

The campaign is due to run for six weeks through television and digital media, through an advertisement highlighting subtle forms of racism that experienced by Indigenous Australians on a regular basis. Beyondblue CEO Georgie Harman said the Invisible Discriminator character in the campaign represents the voice inside the heads of some non-Indigenous Australians.

“You’re not staying there, right?”

“What do you think she’s up to?”

“Could you really rely on her?”

“Don’t make eye contact.”

“Come on. It’s only a joke.”

“Beyondblue recognises that much needs to be done to address depression, anxiety and related drug and alcohol problems in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Over time and across Australia, generations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have experienced trauma, grief and loss. Psychological distress is high amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and this is exacerbated by ongoing social and health factors.” The key message of this campaign is that casual racism is just as hurtful as more obvious forms. The message ‘Stop. Think. Respect’ encourages Australians to think about their behavior in relation to Australia’s first peoples.
