Choosing a Significant Other: I chose the Wood Sculpture Momo brought home from the WilderDance Retreat last year. My aesthetic response was to leave the house ... it must have been in the 70's !!!?? yesterday Feb ? no way you say?
I went to the rocks where a juniper tree grows big. "David's Tree" is very strong and thick and solid and fibrously hairy. It was so warm I feel asleep craddled by the "spine of the dragon" rock outcropping.
when I returned home my sculpture was waiting to be with me; it was smooth, soft, fragile, twisty, holey, spirally thin. Here are photos of me and my significant other.
After dancing (aesthetically responding) with my wood sculpture I drew this picture ... called a PKIP ... a Pyscho Kinetic Imagery Process ... where the drawing lead me to deeper material in this experience. I saw/noticed in the process of drawing various words and wrote:
As fragile as a baby ...
I carry, lift, hang, swing, turn, spiral, Love, cry sad, peek thru, hold close ...
Horizontal ...... Vertical
spiral on floor .....spin up high
curling up fetal .... legs open like a baby being diapered,
I saw more "stuff" on the right side of my body.
Drawing my dances and dancing my drawings integrates what I might be going thru in my life.
It brings my art into my life as well as my life into my art.
