Dancing, writing, living.  

It's amazing the way they are similar.  

How?

You produce material, you select what fits into the piece you are creating — either struggling through trial and error or, when you're lucky, quickly and naturally falling into place — and then only...

Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’
That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.
I don’t much care where -’ said Alice.

Paradoxes

Paradoxes,

they are the foundations of life. 

To understand life, you must understand all sides of the paradoxes. 

Once you know them,

hold onto them.

Keep them,

store them,

Only when they are applicable, 

apply them.

To say yes.

To say yes. 

To really say yes

to something or to someone,

one first has to learn how to say no.

one center to the other,

so we begin to...

One voice begins. 

It’s steady and deep. 

Strong, but not over-powering.

Familiar, in a way different from the familiarity of my family’s voices. 

Distant, yet connected deep inside me.  

Always present but waiting quietly.

Next comes the quizzical voice.

“How have your plans to stay abroad changed after hearing the election results?”

Change my life plans because of how the presidential election played out in my country, are you crazy!                    

Well, maybe not…

It came to me again, as I drove down the highway behind my sister’s big moving truck.  As it carved a path to her new life.

As it trotted its way through the cornfields and small towns buried deep in the middle of the golden content.

With the radio’s voices in the backgr...
