The economy, politics and news got you down? Feel too hurried and stressed to even think about spending almost eight minutes watching a video?

Then you owe it to yourself to watch this one. It’s a clip from the Spanish TV show “Tú Sí Que Vales,” showing 52-year-old dancer Miyoko Shida Rigolo performing with a feather and…you know, I can’t even describe it. Suffice to say it is riveting and beautiful, and the ending is fantastic.

Ms. Rigolo won the Silver Prize of The Fifth International festival of Circus Art in Izhevsk, Udmurtia, Russia with this performance, called Sanddornbalance, and she certainly wowed the judges and audience of “Tú Sí Que Vales.” Not to mention the rest of the world — this video was posted just 11 days ago and already has over 1 million views. Which kind of gives me hope for humanity.

Hat tip to Power Wench.

    Presence, focus, precision, patience, practice, skill, balance, absolute stillness and continuous motion. Every part depends completely on exact relationship with every other part to make the whole. This is the world. This is life. A mesmerizing and extraordinary performance.

      Yes, that’s it!
      Let me add an exquisite elegance and the beauty of physics.

      Thank you, OEx. And I especially appreciate the first and the last sentences.

    Looks like they all can do it in the Rigolo family…

    It is ‘rigolo’ (means funny/strange/curious, in French… 😀 )

    Did you notice that the lady in the blue dress watched open-mouthed? Guess my expression 🙂
