So with our focus on freeSTYLE this month (and beyond too I think) I wanted to dance a fusion of both patterned and newly learned styles for me. A big part of who I am is my affinity for wild Nature, and while traveling yesterday up the North Cascades Highway looking to see eagles (who were eerily absent) I was drawn to the edge of the mighty Skagit River.
I felt a sense of emerging and renewal as I used the scarf; exploring yet another style.
This location is a very powerful one; this river runs deep and fast. I see in the water such a strong metaphor for life. Starting slowly as a snowflake in the mountainous heights, then melting, first as a trickle and then rapidly gaining volume and momentum until you are rushing down a wide channel, and then finally slowing down as you head out into the almost infinite and renewing cycle of the ocean.
