Bird Rock Community Council added a new community bench to its series titled “Dancing Through Life.”
The beautiful, green-leaves-and-butterflies themed mosaic bench was dedicated Sept. 22, 2019 at 5643 La Jolla Blvd., where resident AJ Mason and his family members Thom, Krista and Michaela gathered to honor their much-loved wife and mom, Joanne Mason, who inspired the bench’s messages.
The hope, they said, is that this powerful bench unlocks Joanne’s spirit to lift the spirits of all who rest there to guide them through obstacles, so they can be “Dancing Through Life.”
The family explained that as a marriage-and-family therapist, Joanne was always helping to guide people in their relationships with others and the world. Numerous messages of well-being and healing are embedded in the bench to help people connect to their own inner wisdom. These include:
“Make This Your Best Life Ever”;
“Live The Life You Always Dreamed”;
“Embrace Your Own Style”;
“Make Things Better”;
“Feel The Worry ... And Process It Out”;
“Always Evolve and Transform.”
Her family said Joanne loved to dance and fully expressed and embodied the rhythm of life and creation.
