It just gets weirder. . .


Sometimes you should just stop while you’re ahead.  But sometimes, a little corner calls to you and the lighting is just right and you think, “I’m going to dance and see what comes up.”  This was one of those times.  In retrospect, I think that everything is valuable.  Movement, when allowed to flow freely, can speak to something deep inside that is unexpressed.  Whether or not it is valuable as “art” is another subject altogether.  This 365 project is all about letting go  of that judgment and just seeing where my interest leads me.  Hmmm…. Perhaps next year I may spend another 365days working on how to actually put those ideas together and sift through them to get to the really good stuff. Well, I certainly said a lot to warn you without actually warning you didn’t I?
