ruth st. denis on dance

"A true valuation of the body as an instrument of dance must include a reorientation of our ideas concerning the body. It includes the spirtual truth that the body is inspired by the soul, controlled by the mind, and motivated by the heart".

Ruth St. Denis, 1941

london, jan 2010

It was good (as usual) to be in London, my exam went well and I was able to relax a bit. I went to a very interesting exhibition on Moctezuma (see photo) at the British Museum, saw a couple of dear friends and two films on vampires (a trendy subject nowadays). One of the things I really loved was a chicken soup I had for one of my speedy lunches, absolutely delicious!!!

whale talking (4)

I have been in the belly of the whale...
it was warm in there
I stayed there for a few days,
then left it
it was too good to be there
almost dangerous
now I am outside the whale again
and look for a door (enchanted door)
even a tiny little pathway
to get in again

whale talking (3)

My research is a big whale,
a big white whale
I have been chasing for years.

My research is a fluid entity,
sometimes it runs away
without telling me anything;
sometimes it comes to me
like a little baby
who wants to be cradled.

My research is my malady
and my salvation...

I do not want to chase it any longer,
I want to ride it!
