Alas, last minute snafus as I prepare to leave for a visit to family. I turn to art – to soften my thoughts and to ease the tension in my shoulders. I write for others – that perhaps my shared words might inspire in a way, encourage the journey in others, but primarily I write for myself as part of a healing process. Sometimes it is purely for the need of releasing the visions that swirl about in my head. Sometimes it’s putting emotions to paper.
Does a piece of art influence the dance creations of others I wonder? Is this the piece I sometimes miss? Composition itself is a form of art, putting together a set that is balanced, pleasing to look at, conveys the desired results and looks just as though it was meant to be that way.
This morning it is art I share…
I am hoping that while I’m away, I’ll have moments of time when I can lose myself within creation, generally early in the morning as I sip my coffee and the sun comes up. A natural rhythm, a natural flow are important, and I’m very sensitive to when these are off balance.
May your day be one of bright colors and bold strokes.
I could create this…and think I will..
I don’t care for the noose, but what of a dance in shadow?
