dance

a friend bought me a ticket to an indigo girls/ richie havens concert. I can’t remember the last time i went to a concert...seriously.
i’m a big fan of richie havens. I’ve choreoghraphed to his work....so i put some on today in anticipation of seeing him live. i enjoy how it makes me move.

and sometimes when i’m lucky and all the pieces fall together just right
i dance
even in this little house
ribs open up to free movement of bones and breath and i could be anywhere...any age
any circumstance its timeless movement i love
how the muscles of my feet respond like old pros they know how to spread and carry me through the sudden shifts of weight.
its healing stuff
magic even its what i know is free.

stay tuned for sheep shearing...very exciting....as well as a tale of youth and that always dramatic first love.

I can't wait to learn about sheep shearing. I feel like I'm getting the 4-H education I never had. The chickens are also very exciting. And of course, the story of your first love leaves me on the edge of my seat. That's a great photo, by the way. I think you're beautiful.

Yeah...I gotta see the sheep sheering. My boys are looking pretty ratty and miserable in the heat these days. Wish I had a horned goat stanchion 'cause I think it would make it lots easier.
