A picture is...

worth so much more than a thousand words.  Have been meaning for far too long to get more family photos into Dad's room - his Alzheimer's has him far past the stage of any likely recognition, but it's always back in there somewhere.  Dance classes today provided lots of imagery to play with and I actually took it with me for further exploration.  As is usually the case, really enjoyable ballet & contemporary classes, but especially for the energy brought back from NYC from friends/teachers!  Trying to get out of my head and into the music - that's we learned today.  "It's not just dancing to the music, it's dancing in the music."  Can I pull a Charlie Sheen here (now that's a loaded statement) and say, "well duh, winning!".  Really, though, we can apply the dance lesson to all aspects of life.  Even doing the creative things we enjoy, be it making dance or making pots, it's not just about the making, it's about the being.  Like planning a trip - suddenly you find you're no longer thinking about - you're on it, you're in it.  Tomorrow at the studio, I shall be in the clay... hopefully something other than myself comes out of it.
