dreaming, dancing, dancing, dreaming

Lately I have been feeling my posts have too many words… Inspired by Carolyn and Patricia’s recent poetic posts – “before abrupt awakening” and “sharing our dreams, dancing our dreams”
I was not looking for particular images in nature or trying to remember specifics of our dreams or art… I was spontaneously dancing with the objects that I found… the reflections, here…

… my art…

Dream… share with Patricia… walk… seeing my dream reflected back from nature… seeing my collage images reflected back from nature…
… golden shimmering flowers… branch reaching out across the sea to Japan… the sea… oyster shell ‘pearls’ in the sand… the lights from our hearts…
…dance branch…
… nature reflecting Patricia’s dream… nature reflecting Patricia’s drawing (below)… earth, dirt, water, wind… waves… wavy waves rippling out from the center…
… Patricia’s art…
… branching, reflecting wavy waves of energy… dance waves… dance wavy concentric circles… spiraling into the center… the center of us all… spiraling out…
don’t think… don’t think…
only soul… (“No thinking….Only soul.” Kazuo Ohno, Momo’s butoh sensei)
… dance reflecting my dream… dance reflecting Patricia’s dream, reflecting… our art…
…radiating out from the center… the hearts of us all… rippling out in all four directions… art / life / dance… no separation… connecting…
… sky…
… Patricia’s art…
Love and heart prayers to all beings in Japan…
Grateful for this venue of collaboration and inspiration – thank you Momo.

  1. lovely, thank you.

  2. A joy to witness and an inspiration.

    For me butoh is often very like a dream, familiar yet unpredictable, with expression and emotion and symbolic meanings from within that often I did not know was there, either in myself or while watching another's dance.

    Many thanks.

  3. touched like a song that arrises without thinking on its own a chord….the song, the waves, the story, the community, the stillness, the heart, the axis, the spiral, the time taken, the traces left, the god of space, the kindness to self & other, the loss of understanding, the discovery of truth, the feeling of wonder, the glory of water, the acceptance of death, the celebration of sky, the longing, the framing, the surrender to motion, the graceful humility, the awkward mastery. thank you. more please. im sorry. please forgive me and continue to be patient for posts from this channel dear ones….more soon i promise.

  4. ps…interesting i am now "info" ….love this mercury retrograde thing 😉
