pas de deux


“In classical pas de deux, the man controls everything. He picks up the girl. He puts her down. He turns her, takes her weight, stops her, and she must always go where he leads. The woman submits to all this completely. But her submission is not feeble. In fact, the only reason she can submit so utterly is because she is very strong in herself. In her center. She does not collapse, or cave, or stutter-step, or flop. No, she holds herself very consciously, very confidently. She is centered within her own weight. So the man always knows where she is. He can feel her. He can absorb her strength.”

― Meg Howrey



Knowing where the roots are


old farmhouse in my homeland, Lower Saxony - North Germany

There are only two lasting bequests we can hope
to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.

Wordless Wednesday - reset


It's not only moving that creates new starting points. 
Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift
 in perspective, an opening of the mind, 
an intentional pause and reset, or a new route 
to start to see new options and new possibilities.

If you stand still outside you can hear it... Winter’s footsteps, the sound of falling leaves.
