there are days where doubt is insistently tugging on your body. making it too much. or not enough.
there are days where emotions scatter any idea of sense. all that is left is a litany of ‘I’m here. I’m here I’m here i’m here im here im here im here…’
there are days where you feel too wild, too grand for this life. but only you can feel it.
there are days where the clouds dance across a freshly washed sky. the wind takes all your mind’s dust away.

- soreness is caused by lactic acid accumulated in the muscles and can be reduced by proper stretching after dancing.
- DV8 made a really cool physical theatre film called ‘The Cost of Living.’ It’s on youtube and everyone should go watch it.
- modern dance came about when people decided that the spine should be used more than it was in ballet (which was and still is very little except for support).
today I learned that injustice makes me cry.
I mean… look at this. does it get any more beautiful?
“When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not,” says photographer Braden Summers of his photo series of everyday gay and lesbian couples from around the globe.
