Interests: movement, stressed/transgressive embodiment, lived experience (body\space\time\relation)
expression ( word, dance, text, image, story, music, poetics)
learning, yielding......

Hopes for the blog:
offer up the wild intersectedness of lived experience and engage others in creative, expressive, perhaps irreverant, hopefully playful, and respectful encounters....
enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

the Big C/Sea/See

the Big C
an uninvited guest who insinuated itself into a nice hiding
hung around until its bread crumbs got noticed
well after it had eaten way too much

the Big Sea
cradles my home and soothes me
its crash and dash and silence
calls on the deep
tethered to the moon
teaching me to yield

the Big See
opens up that crack
follows the zig zag beacon
into the space/place/time
when stillness is a sound
a touch
a moment well lived
thoughtfully given
the only thing that matters


  1. this is a reflection on what's happening now what i am learning by dwelling in it.

    surgery thursday this week. four week recovery, so i am told.

    as soon as i am up and about.... i'll be back.

  2. Have faith in the power of the spirit of all creation and trust your surgeon. Recover well and as slowly or quickly as your will determines H. And never, never lose hope until there is no more need of it. Be Well.

  3. WM-- thanks for those wonderful and wise words and the whole feel of your comment. lovely. and, as you can imagine, i am big on hope. :)

  4. Like a wormhole in a sci-fi novel, it loops around in time until you're looking at the back of your own head (or did I enter too many interconnecting doors?)

  5. Garth--nope--- you got it!! thanks for this comment and for the visit. always lovely to see/read you!
