 a space for this body

everything that has ever happened to me,
everything i have ever felt or thought or believed,
everything i have done and had and lost,
everything i h
ave wanted and feared and celebrated....
everything, all of it, has happened in
THIS BODY
this life is a dance
choreographed by and for and in

THIS BODY

this body dances is dedicated
to the exploration of this body~
how it lives and loves and creates,

where it came from and where it's going.
And like any good exploration,

where we will end up
remains a mystery
.

more than anything, this body loves to connect. 
i would love this to be a space
for connection and relationship.  
send me a message or comment on a blog
and let
me know what your body is up to!
