following my goosebumps

19 Jul

goosebumps point to bliss on my road/universe map…anyone else feel that?

I’ve just discovered Pina – full body shiver!

    Oh yes! Pina is amazing. Definitely goosebump worthy.

      How could I have missed that she existed? But what a thrill to discover bit by bit all the reflections that move me, so, daily! Did you ever see a dance live?

        Unfortunately no, though I know my parents did. I think her company was at the Adelaide Festival many years ago.

    Beautiful, M! One of my favorite moments was somewhere around minute three when I think we are seeing Pina herself, first smoking a cigarette during a rehearsal, then just her face from the side, with tears in her eyes.

    A little word of warning, too. Her choreography has a very you-can-do-this-at-home look to it. A disclaimer near the beginning would have been appropriate I feel. But basically– absolute bare minimum– always stretch before trying to spring onto a wooden chair like a cat, and then tip it gracefully into the distance.

    (Keep some wood glue handy also.)

      Oh, so fun are you, Michael! Chloe and I had a laugh imagining your moves and broken chairs 🙂 She came into my room a night or so ago, when I was so close to falling to sleep, and propped her computer on my tummy, saying, “you must watch this now!” This film is what she had found: By Wim Wenders, no less. In a couple of hours, I felt like I lived several lives – and now was buried beneath several shovels of dirt. Oh, the beauty of the human aching through her dances! I miss someone I never knew existed. You are so kind to follow my goose bump trail. An epsom salt bath does wonders for us when we forget to stretch, I’m finding! 🙂 m

    Yes… goosebumps… stuttering, misspelling …. bumps of experiences, ooooh yeah. Glad I found my way here.

      It’s been a while since I’ve listened to “Dead Can Dance.” Thank you for reminding me of this band. The video, wow, is very compelling.This is life!

        I will hunt down more to listen to – this “song” is my first exposure .
