DANCE FOR YOURSELF

“Dance for yourself. If someone understands, good. If not, then no matter. Go right on doing what you love.”-Lois Hurst

These photos are far from perfect.  In fact these images are a very imperfect result of the way I’ve been seeing lately. They are real and a reminder that I am constantly growing and traveling in the right direction. They are a reminder that I exist in a place full of dancing and doing what I love.

AVERY

Inside this new love, die.
Your way begins on the other side.
Become the sky.
Take an axe to the prison wall.
Escape.
Walk out like someone
suddenly born into color.
Do it now.
You’re covered with thick cloud.
Slide out the side. Die,
and be quiet. Quietness is the surest sign
that you have died.
Your old life was a frantic running
from silence.

The speechless full moon
comes out now.

-Rumi
