dance #40, the move

The Move

dance #40

dance #40

8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Dancing with friends and strangers at The Move, Dovercourt House. Rhythmic. Hard. Fast. Full out dancing. Home now and my body aches. Curled up in the armchair in the study, reading Merleau Ponty The Visible and Invisible, searching for some moving text to move me more.  But my body has already danced, and is pulling me towards bed. Slowing itself into sleep. The gesture drawing flows free. Feels just like the frenetic energies of bodies rushing around me on the dance floor.

A cold night, -5 degrees and falling. Alice curled up with me in the armchair. Cool and quiet.
