“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

coming home

we happened upon

yet another

surprise festival

downtown

‘dancing in the streets’

with

cellos playing rock and ballads

hot zydeco

jewish youth band

belly dancers

maypole colors

lone violinist

swing

ballroom

the horah

swaying

spinning

circling

hopping

dipping

instruments for kids to touch

drawing people into the street

for

movement

and

dance

creating

eclectic groups

new pairings

unlikely partners

happy faces

and

it was pretty sweet.

i think the universe is pure geometry – basically,

a beautiful shape twisting around

and dancing over space-time.

never treat your audience as customers, always as partners. – jimmy stewart

library of congress

had a nice offer

from

an

‘adult novelty catalog company’

to advertise

on my blog

and i smiled

and thanked them

when

i

turned them down

and

thought about

what

my posts

are

really

all about

nature, animals, philosophy,  humor, zen, children, travel, art. life, family, love, compassion, adventure

not so much about dancing girls

and their costumes

and their toys

and their boys

not to say

they

can’t be

about

art or love or zen or adventure

too

for they are all

a part of life

and we all

 share the same planet

and

i don’t judge

and

i like to dance

and

wear costumes

and

all the rest

but i figured

chances are

 the company

has never really read my blog

and has no idea

who my audience

really

is

dobrador.com

your audience gives you everything you need. they tell you.

there is no director who can direct you like an audience.
