a great day spent watching the grandies and a few friends get their dance on.
“you live as long as you dance.”
“dance is the timeless interpretation of life.”

“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
we happened upon
‘dancing in the streets’
cellos playing rock and ballads
jewish youth band
instruments for kids to touch
drawing people into the street
it was pretty sweet.
i think the universe is pure geometry – basically,
a beautiful shape twisting around
and dancing over space-time.

i believe i am qualified to teach a master class in this.
had a nice offer
‘adult novelty catalog company’
on my blog
and i smiled
and thanked them
turned them down
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
art or love or zen or adventure
for they are all
a part of life
and we all
share the same planet
i don’t judge
i like to dance
all the rest
but i figured
has never really read my blog
and has no idea
who my audience
your audience gives you everything you need. they tell you.
there is no director who can direct you like an audience.
