something like a dance arises
when the body responds to space and gravity,
when there is a balance of direction and acceptance
when strength and flexibility are nurtured through discipline and practice
‘At the still point of the turning world.
Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point,
there the dance is…’
Burnt Norton. T S Eliot
the photograph is of Darcey Bussell performing a one legged forward bend… en pointe.
and doing it rather well i thought!
