Thank you…

Thank you…

Danica and Dulce -thank you both so much for your sharing! Having been in Cuba for the first works in progress showing – and looking towards the 20th as the first time I will be meeting many of the other artists in this amazing convergence of cultures, approaches, artistic voices – I am feeling nervous, overjoyed, fearful, delighted and absolutely frantic all at once… As the date grows nearer and as the rehearsal process is underway – the ‘everyday’ seems to be sliding its way into my art… I feel like I am at a stage where the ideas are bigger than I can even capture on the page or in my body -and that life keeps throwing me really exciting road blocks that I could choose to pay attention to – but every time I catch myself doing that i remind myself that it is my avoidance of really allowing myself space/time/energy to create… and that life IS art… that all the road blocks -the things being hurled at me head on at a million miles an our – is why I dance – is why I create and it at its core – what my new piece is about… it is about really owning your life – that it isn’t what is happening but how you choose to be, not only to react, but to be – not necessarily in relationship to anything else but just ‘being’ will give you how your relationships look, how the work appears, how you experience life and what happens… don’t know if any of this makes sense but I do know that I feel so honored to have the ability to go on this blog and not feel alone… but to feel a part of something so much bigger than my indv. artistic voice or the rough rehearsal I had on Friday – but that I am able to place myself in a context. I feel thankful.
