 collective joy in graffiti alley 

ann arbor, mi – summer 2018

“the urge to transform one’s appearance, to dance outdoors, 

to mock the powerful and embrace perfect strangers is not easy to suppress.”

 -Barbara Ehrenreich, Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy


The dance is a poem of which each movement is a word. ~ Mata Hari



as the baby ballerinas wait backstage for their moment in the sun


emotions are mixed.


and at last

they are in the spotlight.

and one little dancer goes rogue.

and decides to go solo.

and that is a sure sign.

that she is one of my clan.

and i love her even more for that.

Dancing is just discovery, discovery, discovery. ~Martha Graham
