I felt better today than I have in a while.
This was taken on Vashon Island during a New Year’s weekend improvisation intensive with Karen Nelson @karennelson8722 in 2014. It was the first time I went up there, anyone who’s gone knows how magical it is. This was the day Karen taught us the beginnings of contact improvisation. We watched early Steve Paxton films and then went up to the sleeping loft on the 2nd floor of Hanna barn to try some things out. I was really surprised and amazed to see the video of people bumping smacking running into each other. After doing somersaults and practicing falling, I started to get curious about how the body could adjust, be responsible for itself, find a place to go in the moment. Karen had us try walking towards each other and on contact, falling, seeing how we dealt with the moment, seeing how and where we fall. Everyone made contact differently and fell differently. Then we ran towards each other and made contact in the air and it began to look like a metaphor for life and all the different kinds of relationships. The different ways we protect ourselves or go with abandon, are shy, silly, or serious. Some people would fall together, some apart. Somewhere in there I can see that dance, that mix of life where we get smacked, hurt, or jarred, but also can learn about who we are as we fall.
Yesterday I did some meditation and creative visualization asking the universe and my guides for help to let go of blocks and patterns that have been holding me back and turning things around to include joy and abundance. I think it helped. Here’s to more days that feel like play and are full of possibility 🌈
