i am amazed by these people.
they have made a dance of nothing but thoughts.
what a grateful bag of water i am. – this “bag of water” is a beautiful reference i stole from a student of mine – not sure i am institutionally allowed to mention their name, but if i am – i will. they described a dancer as moving this way.
