“Read the following statement and if it feels true for you, breathe its essence deeply into your body.
“I turn to the Primordial Female Deep and the Mysteries contained there within. I invite my archaic dimensions of be-ing to guide me in the Female Way so I may impact the elements that have long undermined and (dis)ordered me. I wish to greater inhabit the deep and subtle levels of my be-ing so as to flourish my female essence. I desire to dance in my truer ground and potential as a woman. I open to the Primordial Female Deep that lives within me!”
“And then she appeared. As she drifted back through time, her body slowly remembered. The music and knowledge spoke to her. Combining elements of modern dance, tai chi, free form movement and ballet, she glided across the floor. She was the sun, the floor, the air. Her movements flowed seamlessly as she danced down the hall and back around to the living room, round and round. She was one with the moment, with the music, with her spirit. She was ‘The Dancer.’ “
Val’s verse has instilled in me a desire to create a sculpture relating to her experience. I cannot think of a better title. Watch for my post about this sculpture in the future.
