This album is dedicated to my family – my mother who always liked to dance, my father who moved through life with such grace, my children Brett, Tyler and Joshua, who kept me dancing, and Irene and John Santa who have always been there for me and who made this dance possible.

Dancing Gracefully with Life
“Your energy is very apparent in the tape, a good energy, a good communication of feeling. I believe you. I think that’s very important: the person you are comes through. Something deep in you touches something deep in your listener. There is much wisdom in your text, much very deep wisdom.”
Edward A. Dixon, Ph.D., retired professor, Illinois

“Thank you for the kind note and the tape, which I’m enjoying so very much. A little grand-daughter story about your tape you might enjoy: My son and daughter in law went out for the evening and left the baby with me. She started to fuss, and I walked with her and put on your tape. As long as I stood in front of the speakers and rocked her, she was calm and quiet, if I started to walk the halls she fussed again…your lovely voice soothed her as it does me as well.”
Mr. Christine Forkner, New York City
“6-4 I just got home and found your email!! BUT… I did listen to your tape on the way home and it is absolutely beautiful! Rahn’s description of “luscious” was right on!! Congratulations! It was an honor to speak on the same platform with you!!
6-5 I keep thinking about your tape and what a celebration of life it really is. It is not preachy or filled with “should’s”, but a glorious and gentle push into treasuring every moment of life.
6-6 – One last gushing compliment and then I’ll stop – Your voice is so melodic, that you can almost imagine that there is music playing throughout the entire tape!”
Kathleen Hassan, TV Host – The Bright Side, Massachusetts
“You gave so much of yourself in that tape Lynn. Thank you for giving so much to the world in your own gentle and gracious way….I share your celebration of the child within all of us. You have the courage to lead the way, we should have the courage to follow. It is such a beautiful dance.”
Rev. Charles Cujoe, MD, MPH, Nigeria, Africa
“I finished listening to your tape program and it is excellent. Your articulation and enthusiasm make for easy listening. The content was personally helpful and right on the mark. It seemed at times you were speaking directly to me. I listened to your poem several times, and I only wish we had time on the television show to have you read it to the audience. It would have given hope and solace to many people.”
Brian Judd, TV Host –The Book Authority, Connecticut
