In the Beginning....

My new dance blog, but where to start?
At the beginning of course!
But where does the dance begin?
With the music or the movement?
With the story that needs to be told
or the inspiration that wakes one up in the middle of the night
because the steps just can't wait until morning?
Do I write about songs that haunt the mind
or melodies that hunt the heart like Isis in search of Osiris?
Do I attempt to describe being filled as a vessel
with emotions, experiences, knowings not my own
yet awakened in me by a gesture, a movement,
a turn of the head or lift of the arm?
Can I even begin to explain where the Spirit travels
when the steps become second nature
the body moves
the mind stalls
time stands still
and All is One....
