Dancing Reflections

Valley of the Gods


The dance between, in and out of balance; wherever we go, we are, runs the Buddhist saying.

Here the Valley of the Gods, just out of Medicine Bow in Utah, the car that got us there, the warm sunny day, the dust that followed us, clouds dancing across the sky and my mind, companions for so many of my years, a choreography changing shape, shape changers all of us.

Places of awe surprise us into wonder. Take us beyond ourselves, return us into ourselves.

I love poetry, writing, especially writing as healing, as touching the sacred, being touched. And place, places dreaming us, us them. Coasts, rivers, canyons; the ordinary things too, the small things, gestures that reach out.

    Yes the reflection of the soul in the Valley of the Gods – it is an expression of self, of the mirrored reflection of both the individual and collective soul….
    A friend recently wrote:
    “Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how you dance in the rain” (MB, Australia, 2013)
    Star dust Moon dust – dust of the dance.

    Your life is an inspiration – a Guide through this stormy world –
    Your work is ethereal – with a substance that anchors us to all that exists beyond the woeful constructions that would annhiliate us all.
