- stranger: you should be less hot
- me: why?
- stranger: no no - that was a compliment.
- me (internally): I know. I got it. I was just trying to be witty.
I walked past alloments today and some people were having a veg sale; I got a bag full of fresh potatoes, tomatoes, beans and courgettes for 3£!
honestly, I NEEDED NOTHING ELSE FOR A HAPPY DAY SO THANK YOU LIFE FOR THIS BIT OF LUCK I’M EXTATIC.
- Martha Graham called dance ‘the religion of the foot.’
- there is only one muscle that crosses over from the upper half of the body into the lower half: the psoas major muscle.
- 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.
tomorrow I’ll be off to scotland. another beginning.
I need to sleep.
It is beautiful to love humans in a world where love is a metaphor for lust.exerpt from the poem "Here’s What Our Parents Never Taught Us" by Shinji Moon
there are moments when things just fall into place and you forget why you thought having your shit together ever seemed difficult.
you know that legend about fairies? the one where they say that they are so small that they can only feel one emotion at a time? in a way, we humans are also a bit like this. do you really know what it’s like to be cold when you’re sweating, huffing and puffing like a locomotive? I mean, you probably rationally know, or remember, but do you really really know? or the other way around? or do you remember what it felt like not knowing something you learned a month ago?
we remember. our brains do. sometimes. but nothing beats the present on knowing - if knowing is even the word to use in this line of thought; it’s so heavy with requirements of objectivity. yet the present depends so much on our biology - and that one has been proven to play tricks on us more often than I’m comfortable keeping in mind.
where am I going with this? I guess it’s the much used and abused conclusion that the present is the only thing we got.
read me rambling.
