October is the tenth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with a length of 31 days. The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Latin octō meaning “eight”) after January and February were inserted into the calendar that had originally been created by the Romans.
October is commonly associated with the season of Autumn in the Northern hemisphere and spring in the Southern hemisphere, where it is the seasonal equivalent to April in the Northern hemisphere and vice versa. In the Western world, October is also commonly associated with Halloween (All Hallows Eve), which initiates the season of Allhallowtide.
“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!”
Dancing is an expression of so many things. It’s physical, emotional and spiritual. It tears down walls around us and around others.
It’s fun ….. and who better to ask than:
A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE
~~Evolution Of Dance~~
Judson Laipply has been described in many ways by many people. Perhaps the perfect description came early in his speaking career when someone called him and “Inspirational Comedian” and the combination was right on.
Funny enough to be a comedian (he won the only contest he ever entered), educated enough to teach college (he taught several classes and turned down an offer to teach full-time), and lucky enough to learn that combination is one of the most powerful mediums for addressing anyone.
People like to laugh and people like to learn. Judson gives all of his audiences both. His keynotes or assemblies are the perfect balance of laughter and thought-provoking ideas.
His finale “The Evolution of Dance” (a hilarious routine of the last 50 years of popular dance moves) has been hailed as “The funniest thing ever” and ends his shows on a super high. From the moment he steps on stage until he dances away his audiences are laughing and learning!
His wide background of experiences including: working on a cruise ship, managing a Dominos Pizza, being a published author and poet, earning a Master’s Degree in Education, Hosting the Miss Minnesota and Miss South Dakota USA pageants, being a certified aerobics instructor, and much more allow him to relate to almost any audience. Winner of many awards including Speaking of the year by campusawards.com and his favorite “Coolest Uncle” by his 7 year old nephew.
